Thanks so much for setting that up! Unfortunately, I was unable to connect with either Outlook Express or TB. I wonder if my corporate firewall is blocking the connection.

Perhaps the best check for your Thunderbird connection would be to try to connect to (SSL, port 563).  Everything is read-only.

I only put port 563 and cross the use of a secured connection (SSL).
