   This is frustrating.  On initial start, tbird 5 seems to check my accounts 
just fine, but when attempting a manual mail check, I get the following error:

Sending of password did not succeed. Mail server pop.suddenlinkmail.com 
responded: please send PASS command

   Anybody know why this would happen? What to check?  It is repeatable every 
time.  I'll wireshark the communication and see if that help...
