Thanks. However, I am getting pretty sure now that the problem is caused
by NTL's servers. I suspect that they are filtering out large messages
at certain times of the day to reduce the load on their servers, which
means that, as far as leafnode is concerned, the messages really are not
there on the server at the time it does the download. However, some
smaller messages with later serial numbers are successfully downloaded,
making leafnode think that it has downloaded all messages up to that
point. If this is the case, then it is clearly NTL's responsibility to
sort out their servers and I will be speaking to them about that.

OK. I did give the details in a follow-up message, but I'll give them
with the log next time.

Thanks again for your help.
