    Thunderbird timing out

    Hi, I've just installed Thunderbird on my laptop and now I'm trying to configure it to my university e-mail account. I've set it up as suggested by my department and the same as on my gentoo box, but it keeps timing out. I believe the settings are correct, so any ideas what it could be? I think it might be that the port is blocked. How do I open it to check? Thanks in advance.

    I'd check the settings for your university email account again just to be sure that you've got them correct.

    Hi, thanks for your response. I've checked the settings and there the same as on my gentoo box, which can fetch the e-mails perfectly, so I don't think that's the problem. Any other ideas?
