Hi. I am getting the dreaded server connection timeout on thunderbird. The interesting part is, that it happens only when connected to one specific wifi network. And not all the time - 3 days its ok, than for 1 day, i am getting the error all the time, then it suddently works for some time... I tried all kinds of countermeasures (prolonging the timeout time, disabling antivirus, changing the proxy stettings...). Nothing works. I really have no idea where to continue my investigation... Obviously, the problem has something to do with my wifi configuration, just cant figure out what. Thanks for any suggestions.

Is the WiFi also using a proxy or VPN? Both are known to mess badly with email ports. Especially if they do not support them at all as some VPN's don't
