Thunderbird Not Receiving AOL Mail


My father-in-law's new wife has AOL mail. (She had the AOL client on an older computer, that ran expee.)

I have since bought her a new machine and installed openSUSE 10.3. Most things work fine for her.

Now, she's let me know about an issue with Thunderbird and AOL mail. Apparently, the client doesn't always retrieve the mail. She'll know there's mail in her inbox and Thunderbird will say that there's nothing waiting. She'll then go check the web client and sure enough, mail is waiting.

Eventually, she'll reboot and the mail will come over.

Any ideas on this? She's got a Dell desktop with 2G ram and is on a wireless connection to a cable modem.

POP or IMAP ?

Perhaps the network drops and Thunderbird goes offline?

Try lowering the max number of server connections. See the first tip regarding this, and other tips to investigate: http://kb.mozillazine.org/IMAP:_adva..._configuration
