That might depend upon your /etc/nsswitch.conf: hosts -entry in it.

The NUPop is wrong at it. "250-" is intermediate "250" responce,
and means that there is more coming in. Only the "250 " ("250"+SPC)
should be accepted as state-termination of the "250" responces.
Which version of NUPop is that ? How old is it ?

It MIGHT be possible to configure NUPop to send:
but somehow I doubt it..
Btw: There are such clients as: PC-Eudora, and PC-Pine !
(Eudora -- usually uses POP, PINE uses IMAP.. I think the
latter is better protocol for message-store retrieval, but
your opinion may vary..)
