Thanks!  I have my GMail (and all outside email) forwarded to Fastmail.  The 
problem is when I want to send from GMail in the Bat! because GMail insists on 
less secure app status, and cancels the "off" status if I don't send in a 
while.  My ISP email is so inferior that I gave up on it years ago and I don't 
use it at all.
