Apples Mail app has stopped retrieving my mail via POP. Everytime I click Get Mail it tells me there is none to collect.

I have played around with the settings in the preferences (remove copy from server, maually check for mail) but no luck.

I'm running OS X 10.3.3 and Mail 1.3.7.

Any ideas?

well for one thing - it can't hurt to update your system to 10.3.5.

Also, you could try backing up your mail, deleting, and then re-creating the account in Mail...

I have always had the same problem with Mail.app using IMAP. I run 4 e mail accounts off 4 different servers and there is always one that doesn't retrieve on a reliable basis. Ironically, that is the e mail account on my Mac network at the office. If anyone has a solution to this I'd love to hear it.
