Are you positive?  I cannot reproduce this (Eudora, Thunderbird, Outlook
Express) - if the proxy hangs, then the mail clients generates an error, as
one would expect.  Are you certain there isn't a secondary connection
directly to the server that's working and gets the mail instead?  A test
would be whether mail that's downloaded when the proxy hangs has the
SpamBayes headers.


Please always include the list (spambayes at python.org) in your replies
(reply-all), and please don't send me personal mail about SpamBayes.
