As can be read in GAG-News issue 77 I have Hermes and - wow - it is a good piece of software.

Since I have some 12 email boxes the parallel fetching is very nice and due to parallelism is much faster since fetching always means connect -> authenticate -> fetch list -> fetch mail and when one of them hangs a bit everything hangs with POPstar (which does happen sometimes) but with Hermes no hassles at all.

Migration was pretty simple and ever since Hermes runs happily and sleeker than POPstar.
