Despit typing the address of the server I am trying to contact correctly and checking with them to make sure their server is up and running, Fetch will not connect. Says there is no host by that name.

One possible source for this problem is having corrupted proxy settings. To fix that you would choose "Preferences..." from the Customize menu and set the Proxy Type pop-up menu to "None".
If that does not fix the problem could you choose "Fetch Transcript" from the Window menu after you dismiss the error message, and post the contents?
I ended up getting around the earlier problem inadvertently (sometimes the best way) by opening a "recent connection" saved from the previous day to the same server and after that everything went all right.
I was having this problem too (just upgraded to cable internet), and changing proxy type to "none" worked for me. Thanks (and maybe throw this fix up with F.A.Qs, because I was looking around in there and thought I needed to get windows NT servicepack. And then spent a whole bunch of time trying to figure out what they were talking about (their service sites suck)). But thanks for fix, and taking time to answer users posts-John
