Failing to download msg

I've noticed an increase over the past few months in getting the failed 
to download messages see sample after this message, which is the last 
error then success.

Initially before Christmas it was every so often. Jan and Feb it moved 
to repeat once or twice on most of the downloads with a few not an issue 
but all download OK. In the last couple of months it's been every file 
fail message twice then downloads OK. Today I had a couple with 5 fails 
then downloads OK.

I appreciate that the program says ignore the message if it downloads 
and my downloads are successful...

However I was wondering if anyone else is getting the same level of 
response as I am and if so, does anyone actually know why the frequency 
might be increasing.

Asking partly because I just like to know these sorts of things but also 
partly because if it's something to do with my setup I'd like to get it 
back to "normal".

I haven't changed the config options for about 2 years so I'm presuming 
it's more likely changes at the remote end. I could speculate but I'm 
wondering if anyone knows.
