Not sure why, but this message bounced off the listserv:

This came from another list, but I thought some of the Mac people on
this list might have some ideas.  Anyone?

>> Am needing some input from anybody before I become more balder than
>>  I am. Have recently moved from Windows Outlook 2007 to a MAC using
>>  Entourage 2008, and the MAC is using Leopard OS. 50% of the time I
>> can send and receive email from an SSL server (not Exchange). Very
>> often to the point of frustration when I send and receive email I
>> get an error: ³Entourage is unable to connect to the server. Check
>> to see that your computer is connected to the internet²
>> ³Error-3260² Needless to say the emails will not go or come
>> depending if the error came form the POP or the SMTP. I will rerun
>> it and rerun it in succession until possibly the second time it
>> runs OK. But most times, it will continue to give me the error and
>> not connect. One thing that seems to work is to unplug and then
>> plugging my high speed modem. I then run email and it runs OK. But
>> soon it happens again and I¹m back to no email. Sometimes
>> unplugging the Ethernet cable helps to reset it. I have tried:
>> -running disk permissions
>> -repairing entourage database
>> -mporting into a new identity
>> -pinging the server for connectivity and get about 40ms return
>> -the web access through the browser is fine
>> -Googled for some answers but there seems to be nothing. Everyone

>> apply.
>> Any help and ideas would be appreciated. I am newish to MAC so 
>> might need some coaching.
