Here's a followup to myself. It would appear that something has
become corrupted:

On the configuration page where it says POP3 Proxy Options and
SMTP Proxy Options there are correct values filled in; a little
further down that same configuration page, the same sections are
repeated, and there are no values entered in the fields - if I try
to click in one of these empty fields, the whole page jumps
upwards to the region where there are values already filled in. It
would appear that this part of the program has been corrupted in
some way. Now, my question is do I have to do a complete
uninstall/reinstall, or can someone think of a less drastic
measure. It would be nice not to lose all the training effort I
put into it so far.
