Come to think of it, something did change.  I have a DSL connection,
and every time I turn off the machine, usually within five minutes my
IP address winds up getting changed.  This was never a problem before,
so I'm stumped.  Gmail has a fairly straightforward POP3 setup, with a
pop server for receiving mail and an smtp server for sending mail.
