I don't have actual ideas on the problem, but I can offer up some help
on how to debug it. Save the below as "runtbird.bat" and place it on the
user's desktop, and tell them to run this instead of the ThunderBird
icon. This will log all the debug info from the client so you can go
== snip ==
start /d "c:\program files\mozilla thunderbird" thunderbird.exe
== snip ==
Obviously adjust the log location and ThunderBird install folder as
appropriate. If you want to log all modules instead of just IMAP (SMTP,
e.g) then replace "IMAP" above with "all".
Note the above will create a date/time stamped logfile for each run, so
you won't lose the previous logs. The 'mydate' and 'mytime' are a little
bit of smarmy batch-fu, make sure you get all those percent chars and
whatnot in your copy/paste.
