Apologies... here are the details:
--I'm on a Unix server, running Perl Version 5.006001
--The script can be found here: http://scbr.com/docs/download/mwm.shtml. The instructions (such as they are) can be found here: http://scbr.com/docs/download/mwm_inst.shtml.
--I do not get the error immediately; it takes about 30 or 40 seconds for the "connection error" text to appear.
--The error message from log file is as folows:
Can't call method "login" without a package or object reference at inbox.pl line 31.
--When I run the script, everything appears to work fine: by calling mwm.pl I get an html document to log in to, I am then taken to a window with three frames, I can set up new accounts, and all data is written to the "db" files. I can even send mail (/usr/lib/sendmail).
--Another respondent to my initial message (sorry it was so long -- was not aware of the readmore tag) -- asked why I did not use the net::pop3 module. I guess the answer is that the script I am having trouble with employs its own module. My server has the CPAN module available, I just do not know if I have the option of using it with the script with which I am having trouble.
Thanks again for all your assistance. David
