All of a sudden, when I tried to "Get Mail" for in Thunderbird, it would say that it was downloading the messages, but then it would error with "Server timed out"
I checked the settings and everything looked okay.  I was able to access the mail on another machine using Thunderbird.
Restarting Thunderbird didn't work.
Restarting Windows didn't work.
I was able to login to Optimum Online's WebMail.
I decided to Add the account again in Thunderbird.  It began to download the messages, but it stopped at the same message as the original account.  I logged into the Webmail and deleted the next message after the last one that was downloaded in Thunderbird.
I tried "Get Mail" again in Thunderbird.
This time it worked.
