Based on above, mutt and msmpt *appear* to be fine, but this seems to be a
problem with the wireless driver, card, or router - you are being
disconnected from the network, which in turn is causing the 'broken pipe'.

You could feasibly work around it by using a wired connection, or take a
look at what is going on with your wireless.
