Of course, I have already fixed it. No clue what was happening though.
Following various advice here and there, I did the following:
- compacted all folders
- deleted email passwords
- increased time out number (now set to 180)
- closed and reopened Thunderbird
- crossed my eyes and hopped on one foot while patting my head
None of it worked so I was considering a hard boot although I had just did one. I thought about checking AVG (firewall and virus version) and realized it wasn't working for some reason. It was in the tray but I couldn't right click to open it.
Did a hard boot and now email is working. I can download and send. I'm about to do a virus scan, just in case something wonky is about.
