Reading your mail and the others I smell bad dns.  My isp was having the
same problems could not get mail either.  I went to the library and
googled for other dns numbers to use.  Using those from another isp
solved the problem.  I could not even wget.  Nothing resolved in any
browser.  Since the change the problem resolved.
