Why would they cut you off?

In any case if you have internet access, can you not use

https://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?tab=rm#inbox

Not ideal but at least you can continue sending/receiving email.

What happens to my messages in Gmail after they've been popped?

That depends on which behavior you've selected in the When messages are
accessed with POP setting in Gmail. You can choose to archive, delete,
or keep you keep your messages in your inbox.

      • Sign in to your Gmail account.
      • Click the  gear in the top right.
      • Select Settings.
      • Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
      • Select the drop-down menu next to When messages are accessed
        with POP and choose which setting you prefer.
      • Click Save changes.

Regardless of which behavior you select, any downloaded message will be
marked internally as 'popped' and will not be downloaded again. If however,
your mail client crashes unexpectedly, the message will be re-downloaded.

You can change the behavior to *keep in inbox* at least until you debug this
problem.
