Nothing at all has changed with my email Client and I have been
receiving mail with Incredimail just fine for almost a year, and then
about a month or two ago - WHAM! All of a sudden Gmail won't come
through anymore! **shrug** This is the error verbatim that I am
"Socket Error: 10060, Port: 995, Protocol: POP.A connection attempt
failed because the connected party did not properly respond after a
period of time, or established connection failed because connected
host has failed to respond."

difference. It doesn't.
