      Oddly enough it doesn't!

      Neither adding the working IP address to /etc/hosts nor changing
      `gnus-secondary-select-methods' nnimap-address to that address

      But when I changed the stanza from:

          nnimap "aol"


          nnimap "imap.aim.com"

      it worked.

      So apparremtly, defining the slot

           (nnimap-address "imap.aim.com")

      is not being honored when `gnus-secondary-select-methods'

 (nnimap "aol"
         (nnimap-address "imap.aim.com")
         (nnimap-server-port 993)
         (nnimap-stream ssl)

      Gnus is using "aol" instead of "imap.aim.com" as evidenced
      by if I add


      to /etc/hosts I am now able to connect when the stanza is "aol".

      Based on the backtrace I sent previously, are the correct
      parameters being sent?

      It appears that the function `nnimap-open-server' has the
      correct parameters passed to `nnimap-open-connection' so
      what or where is the problem?
