I don't use SimpleMail, but if your settings work for NetHopper and NetTime,
then I think it's clear that you're missing something in SimpleMail. I know,
you said you checked all you're settings and RTFM, but I would suggest that
you go again with the manual and follow the instructions exactly as
outlined. There are probably thousands of users using SimpleMail that have
it perfectly working for them, and I highly doubt that going wireless is the
problem since NetHopper is working fine. So, it must be something missing in
your settings. Sorry!

fat electrons n.: Old-time hacker David Cargill's theory on the causation of computer glitches. Your typical electric utility draws its line current out of the big generators with a pair of coil taps located near the top of the dynamo. When the normal tap brushes get dirty, they take them off line to clean them up, and use special auxiliary taps on the bottom of the coil. Now, this is a problem, because when they do that they get not ordinary or `thin' electrons, but the fat'n'sloppy electrons that are heavier and so settle to the bottom of the generator. These flow down ordinary wires just fine, but when they have to turn a sharp corner (as in an integrated-circuit via), they're apt to get stuck. This is what causes computer glitches.
