Is your wireshark connected to the same switch that has your POP traffic or it a different switch?

Wire shark captures the mirror traffic and display it on the screen , but i see unicast traffice for example OSPF traffic and some other junk, but when i filter the out put to display the POP3 trafffic , it does not seems to be there even though i know i am recieving email on that same vlan since i m connected to it. seems to me that pop3 just not showing up even though i have my pc connected to same vlan for hours and i recive close to 50 messages.

Can you paste your monitor session config and also the interface config for the server port and the wireshark port?
