I'm learning some things about normal X-UIDLs. It is normally a unique
identifier added by your pop server, most typically to aid in the
management of read messages which are left on the server. It is also a
popular bogus line added to spams and has been used by some as a filter
at the server level, as no normal mail would contain an xuidl when it
arrives at the server.
If this problem condition you are describing always follows the xuidl, I
suppose it might be possible that your popserver is handling the line
badly - or perhaps your mua.- and 'accidentally' losing the blank line
following the xuidl if that is where the header ends.
