it's called in POPSocket>>connectToPOP so ordinarily shouldn't be a 

The problem is that initializing the network might cause some systems 
to dial the modem, etc., and you don't want this happening until you 
actually need the network.

So you should call it before making a connection, but no earlier. Look 
for senders of initializeNetwork.

Whether it would make sense to call it elsewhere I don't know.
