    Connection to server times out


    I am running Thunderbird as my email proxy and the other day I kept getting 'Connection to server timed out'.
    Initially I thought it may be the Thunderbird software but after re downloading it again the problem still persisted. I downloaded another email proxy - still the same result. I closed all my anti-virus programs and extended the timeout period in Thunderbird too but it makes no difference.

    I am now at a loss to find a solution. Any ideas would be great. Thanks in advance.
