Important - - Incoming.pl Stopped Working

I've been using GM for 3 months with no problems at all. I've got cron set to run incoming.pl every 5 minutes and I have a database of about 3k users.

One day I noticed that incoming.pl wasn't working anymore. So, I used telnet, issued the incoming.pl -v command and noticed that it would start processing the mail log file and then would hang and display the following:

GT::Mail::POP3 (21031): Unable to write 6 length to socket. Wrote [undefined], E
rror(Broken pipe) at /home/mysite/cgi-bin/mail/admin/GT/Mail/POP3.pm line 163.
You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/mysite

Not sure what this "broken pipe" means, but it appears to be causing all of the trouble. Basically, my users have not received their mail in the last three days since this started.

Does anyone have any insight into this?

This indicates a problem with the pop server. Have your ISP check out the first message on the pop server and see if they are able to retrieve it ok.
