Wow. That looks like an insanely broken way to do "RETR 1". The
exceedingly large number might be upsetting the POP server. Have you
tried tracing the connection with tcpdump to see what traffic (if any)
is being sent back by the server?
`F' is group reply. This is because `G' is for sort and `g' is for get new
mail. And `G' is for sort because `sort' used be called `group', and anyway
`S' is for save mailbox and `s' is for file message in folder, because `f' is
group reply and `F' is group reply including original text.
