	That might depend upon your  /etc/nsswitch.conf: hosts -entry in it.
	(I have there: dns files, you have propably: nisplus files ?)

	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:

		HELO mcapp.med

	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..)
