Basically, I am using Mutt as my MUA, and I have either getmail or 
fetchmail configured to receive my POP3 mail from Comcast, which is via  I am using msmtp as my smtp client, and have no 
trouble sending mail from Mutt...just can't receive.  Both the 
.fetchmailrc and getmailrc configurations have worked in the past.  Is 
this possibly a sendmail issue?  The fetchmail.log repeatedly indicates 
"Trying to connect to failed: Operation 
temed out."
