I have Mail.app set to check 4 different POP accounts. Suddenly Mail.app apparently had difficulty checking two of the accounts, and the dreaded exclamation point in a circle icon has appeared next to those two accounts. Clicking on that icon brings up the dialog box "Unable to Receive Mail. There may be a problem with the mail server or network. Check the settings for account “account name” or try again. The server error encountered was: The server “mail.domainname.com” cannot be contacted on port 110." Along with a button to "Take All Accounts Online".

Clicking this button makes no change in the accounts.
Clicking on each account individually and attempting to get email does nothing.
Clicking on each account individually and attempting to take them online does nothing, because the popup menu actually offers an option to "take account OFFLINE", although the account is in fact offline and not working.

Webmail to those accounts works fine.
Entourage to those accounts on another computer works fine.
