|cant receive mail pop3

I am running LS 2002 build # build 2002.0.02.0912, on Win2k server, and AVG antivirus server version.
My problem, every few days, my server can't receive email , few days ago I had to change the POP3 port number to a random number and then change to back to 110. That did solve the problem !!
Today, I have the same problem again!
Am I missing important patches ?
Is it AVG AntiVirs causing all these problem ?
Can I upgrade to LS2003, and how should I go about this ?

Check your log files to see if they give any clue as to what is happening. One possibility: if you have a POP3 connection active and the connection is broken it may stay active and refuse any attempts to log in. Eventually the interrupted session gets reset and access is permitted.
I've also seen that when I access webmail (my ISP's service) that I can not simultaneously download by POP3.
In both of these instances the POP3 server indicated that the password was not acceptable.
