[lug] Mozilla mail: won't connect to server

At 1:40 this morning, we were noticing problems in Comcast/ATT in Fort
Collins. They seemed to be limited to Fort Collins, as it wasn't replicated
in Comcast Denver at that time.

I'm not sure that what you were seeing was the same thing, I just thought
I'd mention it in case it's related.

We're not sure if it's resolved, we've switched over to the DSL and haven't
retested Comcast yet.
