Upon installing this latest version of Thunderbird (1.0 Preview Release), I had
Mozilla 1.6 installed.  I had an IMAP account with "secure connection" (SSL) set
in with Mozilla.  Upon installing Thunderbird, the import "wizard" came up and I
chose to import my mail accounts from Mozilla.

After starting Thunderbird, it was taking too long to check e-mail and I went to
check the settings.  Here is where I seen the problem.  The import process got
the port number correct (993 for SSL), but the actual option "Use secure
connection (SSL)" was NOT checked.  After checking it, I was able to connect to
my IMAP account.
