Mozilla Thunderbird 3
I have been using TB version 3.0.3 for quite a while with no problems.
An automatic update downloaded, changing it to version 3.0.4.
Now, although it seems to work OK for SEND and RECEIVE, when first opened or using GET MAIL I get a panel saying that the TIMEOUT has expired, see this reference :-
It is to do with TIMEOUT of POP3 server. Looking at the net, I find many other users have had or have still got this problem. I have changed the default value of 100 using TOOLS>OPTIONS>GENERAL>CONFIG EDITOR to 600, but it makes no difference.
It was suggested I go to my PROFILE folder using the RUN and %APPDATA%\thunderbird\profiles, which I did and got this panel :-
This looks like a Microsoft error exists which I cannot do anything about. It may be causing the trouble, but it never did before the TB 3.0.4 update.
Can anybody please explain the TIMEOUT config that is required to cure this problem and of course how to do it, plus comment on what the error panel means and where I go next ?
It is of course essential to recognise that nothing on my system has changed, the TB version 3.0.3 worked perfectly, when updated to version 3.0.4 it does not. Seems elementary that the problem rests with Mozilla`s update. We have all had faulty updates from most software providers, I have, including Microsoft.
PS - This subject has been posted on several Forum`s and received extensive and detailed discussion, but I did not find any solutions.
Incredibly, I posted it on the Mozilla Forum and only had one reply which again did not provide a solution.
