If you provided a link to the details that TalkTalk provide for connecting to their mail sever someone may be able to give you some help, but you've not provided much to go on. E.g. You don't say whether you're using POP or IMAP or whether you're using SSL or not. Your problem (probably) doesn't have anything to do with Linux per-se so you may be able to find help elsewhere.
IIRC Thunderbird's set up wizard is unhelpful in that at no point does it give you the option to specify that the connection to the mail server should use SSL. If you need/want to use SSL then you have to go in to the preferences afterwards and select that. So if TalkTalk require SSL, it may be that that's causing you problems. Then again, maybe not.
