I recently had a severe problem with my Mozilla mail not being able to POP or SMTP. I was getting the error message: Could not connect to server foo; the connection was refused. Turns out I misconfigured Mozilla to use AdSubtract for SOCKS on localhost:4444. But it took quite some time to realise that the SOCKS setting affects POP and SMTP. Therefore, I would suggest some more helpful diagnostic message: "the connection was refused.\nPossible problem with SOCKS configuration." - or something similar.
