I was just wondering if anyone else has seen a rise in unauthenticated POP3 connections on their servers.

I was looking at the POP3 access monitor the other day and notices a couple of IP addresses were connected up to 5 times each [on our different front end servers].  5 is the limit we allow from a single IP address.  They were just sitting there, unauthenticated, for up to 9 minutes.

I've only noticed a couple of these customers so far, but I'm wondering if it is a new virus or something.
