You might have something set up wrong on your rebol setup. Perhaps your
password or username is incorrect? Or you've incorrectly specified your pop
and smtp servers (though the smtp looks OK)? Do you have any firewalls or
proxies in the way? Try Rebol on a PC with Windows to confirm.

the dial-up networking dialog box asking if I want to connect. I still need
manual intervention at this stage of course.

If I've clicked off the "connect automatically" check box on the DUN dialog
box, I then have to click the DUN connect button with Rebol or my browser or
I prefer to click on "connect automatically", as I've got a "all you can
drink" dial up connection, and my email client works better this way with
HTML email with embedded advertising.
