The diagnostics suck and need to be fixed.  In their defence, the ':587' on the 
end of the address is a hint.

Meanwhile, I am hacking TLS support into inc's POP code, and it's quickly 
becoming apparent the assorted bits of network-related code need to be 
consolidated.  This gives a good opportunity to clean up the server-contact 
configs, auth/security info, etc.  Given the IETF's recent enlightenment over 
security, this is a great chance to overhaul the code and actually leap *ahead* 
of the world on something :-)
