Is your browser on the same machine as the server?  Most firewall rules
won't affect the local loopback network.

Stopping the network should stop all traffic, but if you also have
network manager running, that can be bringing up interfaces separately
by itself.

(This computer runs FC7, my others run FC4, FC5 & FC6, in case that's
 important to the thread.)

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
