All of a sudden my email has stopped working.  It is my proprietary account ( that I have been routing through my gmail account for over a year now.  I get this error message when I try to send an email:

You can't send mail yet.

When I try to access it through my Outlook account, I get persistent popups asking me to login to my imap server at gmail.

Not sure what would have caused this all of a sudden but I would sure love some help on it.
