POP3 not working with NAT in versions since 3.2.0

|Version:||VirtualBox 3.2.2||Keywords:||NAT POP3|
Windows 7 64 bit host, Windows XP SP3 guests. When I upgraded to 3.2.0 none of my guests were able to POP my email accounts when using NAT, bridged they are fine. I downgraded to 3.1.8 and the guests could once again POP my email using NAT (even leaving 3.2.0 guest additions installed on the guest). I then tried 3.2.2 and experienced the same issue, had to go back to 3.1.8. I tried numerous variations of --nataliasmode1 sameports, proxyonly but never got NAT and POP to work with 3.2.x. I haven't tried 3.2.4 since the change log doesn't look promising and I've been pressed for time. No VBox.log file is attached because I had to revert back to 3.1.8 and don't have the time to switch 3.2.x in and out again. I need NAT because I travel alot and bridging to my wireless adapter doesn't work at most hotels and some client sites.
