Error when trying to setup Thunderbird

When trying to configure my gmx.com email with Thunderbird I get this message when trying to create a new account.

Component returned failure code: 0x80004005 ▲ (NS_ERROR_FAILURE) [nsIMsgAccountManager.createIncomingServer]

I have set the email up many times before just never with Thunderbird on a Linux setup so I am not too sure what would be causing this, trying to find help for this I come across the same issue with varying differences. At first I thought it maybe my firewall but I disabled it and tried again and still same error. Any help much appreciated.
