You do know that most of the popular mail clients (Netscape etc)
also accept IMAP connections? The mail client you want to use 
/probably/ has an IMAP option - it sounds like this might solve
your problem.

How do you have your POP connection configured? Have you got
your incoming and outgoing mail server BOTH set to the remote 
machine you want to get the mail from?
Does your home domain match that? How about your home email
