Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Yes it does ask for my password. The t-bird loading status bar quits showing activity quickly after entering password. But nothing appears to happen. I have checked the error reports and again nothing.
I have no way of testing with your email provider, but I have run into similar problems.
What I do when I run into something like this--and I have run into this sort of thing frequently in setting up new email clients or moving to new providers--is to change my settings one at a time, keeping track of the changes so I don't repeat myself.
I expect that you have verified your port settings, so the next most likely culprit is the security settings.
I would also suggest that you delete your saved password from Thunderbird until you have finished diagnosing the cause of this and setting Thunderbird not to remember your password. This removes a variable from the equation.
You might also consider using a different email client for testing purposes (I would suggest Sylpheed--its dialogs are much like Thunderbird's). In fact, I prefer it to Thunderbird. It should be in the repos.
I have been single stepping through the whole process. One thing I have found is that thunderbird is communicating with netzero mail server. I have been playing with the user name and a few other settings in the incoming / outgoing server section to see if I cant get some failure reports of some kind.
Then I purposely put in the wrong password and I got an authorization error that the password was wrong. That was a pop3 response. I then changed from pop3 to pop just to see if I would get response message from that server as well. Indeed I did.
But while using pop3 and pop when finaly putting in the correct password I did not get any auth messages. The process would end stating that there are no new messages. I know there are messages that have not been read.
Aah hah no errors or warnings but there has been messages.
"pop3.netzero.net : server does not support RFC 5746, see CVE-2009-3555"
