fetchmail stopped working (woody).

This is driving me nuts.  Everything else works fine.  All of a
sudden, I can't pop mail, and I have no idea why:

Is the problem on my machine or my ISP's?  Assuming this gets to the
list, I have no trouble sending mail out, but incoming just stalls on
a timeout, somewhere.  What's going on?  Any ideas?

set no spambounce
set properties ""
poll mail.spots.ab.ca with proto POP3
       user 'keeling' there with password 'MY_PASSWORD' is 'keeling' here options fetchall

As I say, this has all worked well for a long time with no changes.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
