I've done a search and found there's a server compatibility issue with 0.8.
so that Firebird says there are no messages on the server when there are.

One recommendation was to try setting 'use secure authentication' but my
mail server doesn't support it.

The other was 'switching off plain'
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=258077#c8 which I don't

It doesn't seem to be a firewall issue.
