Why does my webmail download to Outlook 2003 stop after 10 minutes?

At www.gmx.com, I have two different e-mail accounts registered. In Outlook 2003, I have only setup configurations for POP3-download of the webmail to Outlook for e-mail account no. 1.

In Outlook 2003, In "Tools/Send and receive/Only pop.gmx.com" I can start the download and it continues for 10 minutes (about 200 online e-mails get downloaded). Thereafter, I receive this error message:

"The task pop.gmx.com - Receiving, reported the error (0x800CCC90): The server for incoming e-mail (POP3) has reported an internal error. Contact the server administrator or the Internet Service Provider (ISP) if the problem persists. The server responded: To: myemailaccountno2@gmx.com=2"

So it seems that after 10 minutes the GMX e-mail server shifts from my e-mail account no. 1 to my e-mail account no. 2 (which is not at all configured in Outlook).

Anyway, it works always for 10 minutes, so I could continue and download until the error message appears and then start it again over and over again, downloading 200 messages at a time. But it's a bit annoying so I wonder if there is any better solution to this?

Hi
Very similar that outlook falls on one of letters
If to find and remove it the error will be gone.
As there can be a problem with an antivirus, it can cause report breakage pop3. It is treated also by emoval the bad letter.
