ATT does offer a web-mail interface, which shows that I have no email
pending.  Nevertheless, evolution shows repeatedly that it can't fetch
the message with ID ALwwvs4AAB//RP55HQdLMjcw/zI.  I suspect that you are
right about Evolution trying to fetch a message that isn't there,
because clicking the configuration box "Disable support for all POP3
extensions" in Edit->Preferences->... makes the problem go away.

I would still like to look over the traffic, so I can figure out what's
going on and maybe do something about it.  I vaguely remember some
environment variable that will cause Evolution to log its traffic with
the server, but no-one has been able to remind me what it is ... So it
looks like it's time to break out WireShark.
