I saw light, intermittent packet loss to my Tummy systems from 
Comcast/Denver this morning, but I still able to retrieve mail from one 
of them.  At least for awhile.

But at this point it's something of a moot point.  I just tried Mozilla 
mail again and it's dead dead dead.  I would hate for this to have 
happened in a work environment, it would have killed mozilla and desktop 
linux acceptance.
