I meant smtp.gmail.com
I went in and deleted the second email address from the account information window, and that seemed to make connection doctor happier... But it still doesn't seem to receive messages. Is there a limit on the total number of messages that can be in the application?
Or something with the port connection?

And FWIW, the comma-separated list is normal with Mail.app with many users. It's how to operate with multiple return email addresses, and Mail.app has allowed that specification for a very long time...

Went through the steps in the troubleshooting.
In connection doctor, both gmail itself and the smtp.gmail.com get "green dots". I currently am using the "rebuild" feature, but it all seems to be going well, so I don't know if that will have fixed anything.
I've noticed that, when using the setup assistant, it wants to establish gmail accounts as IMAP accounts, whereas this one is a POP account. Could this difference account for the issue? If so, why didn't it cause a problem before? This wasn't a problem until he got back from his recent trip to Japan.

I had this problem too but I fixed it today.
Go to the mail menu preferences.
Click on account in question.
Select the outgoing SMTP mail server (the one offline), this has a drop down list, click on the edit server list.
Click on the advanced button.
Make sure use default port is checked.
Make sure SSL is unchecked (unless your provider requires it, mine does not work with it checked).
Have authentication set to password.
User name should be your email address for that account.
Make sure correct password is entered (for some strange reason my password box was blank on this account).
Push the ok button.
For me the SSL box was checked and the password was missing. This is strange to me considering I have unchecked the SSL Box on the mail preference advance page. Also, I went through the complete set up account when I first created the account, why was my outgoing server password box empty?
I hope this helps.
Here is a link to some visual aids with the steps from my ISP
