Since Emacs is single threaded, I think it's a design feature.

But I was "borne" in a Unix  system where Emacs readed the mail from a
file, so  that I decided  to simulate this  even using pop  (that's an
external pop client).

Under Unix you can use fetchmail or something simpler.

Under Windows there's a VB program I wrote and comes under GPL (and
that I suggest to drop) or a crappy pop client i built from "spare
code" to replace the VB kludge (and that I user even under Linux)

I am sure that GNUS accepts file based mailboxes (vm and RMAIL do!)
