Very slow POP3 messages retrieval

Hello,
 
does someone experienced issue with very slow POP3 messages retrieval? One of my clients sent me a support ticket that he has very small account (migrated from other hosting company) with just 106 messages using about 32MB. When he is trying to fetch them to his local computer it is taking very very long to download them. Take a look at this POP3 log:

take a look at hours and you will notice that it is taking way too long. I'm using SmarterMail 15.7.6390. POP3 log does not contain any errors.
Any ideas/suggestions?
 
Thanks
