This is a continuation of a thread with the same title that was closed over a year ago. I do not accept the answer therein - "there is a problem with the POP3 mail server.". If there were a problem with the mail server, then an Exit and restart of Thunderbird would NOT work, as Thunderbird would be passing the same (bad) parameters to the mail server. In fact, every time I have experienced this error, an Exit and restart of Thunderbird has corrected the problem.
I believe that what is happening is that the POP3 connection parameters within Thunderbird are getting corrupted, maybe overlaid. I have no way of proving this, as 1) the connection to the POP3 server is encrypted so a Wireshark trace would not tell me anything, and 2) I do not know the internals of Thunderbird. I had an occurrence last week, and what I did was to take a dump via the Task Manager. Maybe someone with knowledge of Thunderbird internal;s can look at the dump and see if the connection parameters are still intact. Or tell me what windbg commands to run against the dump.
I am running 60.9.0 on Windows 7 Professional, 32-bit. Thanks.
