this is a common issue with pop-before-smtp authentication.  Their MUA is 
probably trying to send an email before they have authenticated with pop3.  
Outlook is notorious for doing this.

Fortunately, I think outlook might have a flag where it will always check for 
new messages before sending, but I don't use outlook so you're on your own 

If it doesn't, just tell your users to make sure if they see it happen to hit 
send/receive and try again.  Or switch to an smtp auth based solution if it's 
that big of a problem.
