Subject: Re:  connecting via Thunderbird

Are you getting any popa3d messages in the logs (/var/log/messages, probably)?

If not, check the firewall settings (probably either ipchains or iptables).
RedHat might not allow access to the pop3 port by default.  You may have
to add a new rule to allow for it.
