Thank You Pär:

I’ll try poptest.pl as soon as I can find it. The only link I can find that 
hosts it is your own website, and that link is stale. I cant find it on the 
wiki anywhere. Can you send it or point me to it?

Also, I changed my pop server to yahoo.com to see if that pop account behaved 
differently. I get the same behavior - smtp connection allows outgoing mail, 
and incoming mail yields “No mail”, with the initial connection asking for an 
updated email setting. When I updated the email to the new account, one of the 
scripts threw several errors (before the update was acknowledged as valid), but 
I don’t see these in the pskmail server log. Is there another log somewhere I 
can check, related to pop?
