Not sure why I didn't mention trying that or something similar to it.  However, I have tried and tried again those exact same steps and I had the same results.  It starts to make a connection, gets to the "verifying username and password" then disconnects with a 619 error.

Those modules were not enabled.  Turning them on got it working.  Thanks for your help.  I am going to share the points since the first suggestion was correct, but not the solution to my problem because I communited the problem poorly.  Thanks again for the help!
