Can't log on to aol to read e-mail
I can no longer log on to aol to read my e-mail, it has been working fine for many months but now when I click "get messages" I get "Login to server imap.aol.com failed." If I then click retry I get another dialouge which says "server firstname.lastname@example.org has disconnected. the server may have gone down or there may be a network problem".
Ihave tried the following :-
1 Restored profile from backup.
2 Deleted profile and created new one.
I know my password is ok because I can log on using the aol browser using it and get access to my e-mail that way but this is not ideal.
Should I try a complete re-install of Thunderbird ?
Any help would be gratefully recieved.

I would suggest you look at your anti virus. They are notorious for dropping connection in their attempt at scanning mail
Thanks for your prompt reply.
I have tried disableing my av but no improvement!

try a reinstall. Someone earlier today had success doing so.
