When a new pop3 mail account is created and the mail window opens, it start

of them ( depending how quickly he clicks the STOP button ).

Steps to Reproduce:
1. create a pop3 account

messages at startup" option(s)

This was recently fixed in Mozilla 1.4b.  It will be fixed when we pick up the
new Mozilla version.
