Looks fairly similar, I don't see what the problems are... esp since we
are both using STMP. Cound it be the DNS lookup? With it enabled, I get
funny bounces and hangs during mail fetching under some circumstances.
Much of that when I get spammage.

I had to remove it, as it seemed to drop my mail into the void when it
was in place.
set daemon 300
defaults proto pop3
# mda "/usr/lib/sendmail"
