well I will look at this again, but this is never something I struggled with
on v2x and v3x - the option to fetch mail was always where I'd expect. This
time when I did see it, it was rather a surprise as I'd been struggling to
make sense of this for 30mins. After that one time when I fetched the mail, I
never saw the option to do it again.

there is definitely connectivity that I checked. As I said - the account creation to me is rather tedious, so I just create the account with any old settings and then move the known good qtopiamail.conf into place. I did this with several upgrades before without problem. This time I also tried an alternative smtp server - same error message.  I also confirmed I was using the mail settings I thought I was by "editing" after the file had been swapped in and checking what was there.

In summary - although I doubt it, one issue maybe my pebkac, the other is
surely a real problem.
