These days, it's just Google although it has been mac.com on occasion (incoming mail server, not outgoing smtp server).

But at least it's comforting to know it's not just me and that I'm not losing it a little more (that pesky little PTSD thing sneaks up on me from time to time).

If the problem is consistent when accessing the ISP's web servers then I would contact their tech support.  The advantage of this is, they can't point the finger at someone else.
