thunderbird server times out

thunderbird used to run fine for well over a year, but suddenly I cannot send nor receive e-mails, It sits for a while and then the message comes up server times out. Firefox still seem to be working, but sometimes downloads also just hang. Not server as I log in from laptop through same router to telkom (both wireless to router). Thanks Piet

hello penslin,
it seems you managed to use linux for 5 years without a single problem? wow.
may i ask what distro you are using and whether it is up-to-date?

without further information we cannot offer much help.
you can watch thunderbirds status bar, maybe get some extra information? or start thunderbird from a terminal, see what it spits out?

anyhow it seems the issue is more general; internet slows to a crawl.
(funny, i'm having similar problems today, but not with all sites)
are you aware what is accessing the internet? maybe some app went haywire.

actually you should close the browser completely every now and then, and delete cookies, or make cookie policy stricter. that often helps, esp. if your browser is open while you fetch email.
