Email retrieval error. What does this mean?

Hello. Got this error after i cleaned up some emails in communication.

Error in retrieving email.
Traceback (innermost last):

msg = self.pop.retr(msg_num)

What error is this and how can i correct it? Thanks!

It means the email retrieval took longer than 5 mins which is the timeout for each worker task. We should suppress this error. Can you create an issue on github? Issues · frappe/erpnext · GitHub

I was able to remove the scheduler log error by deleting an item in bulk email list with an error status. i guess scheduler log worker always checks the list for sent and not sent items as well as errors.
