I have a GMail POP3 account, which uses SSL encryption for sending and receiving mail. Because of this, they do not use the standard ports for their POP3 and SMTP servers. GMail uses port 465 for SMTP and port 995 for POP3. When Thunderbird imported my GMail account settings, the port number was incorrectly changed to the default port of 110 for my GMail POP server. I also had three mail accounts listed in Outlook Express, but only one of my SMTP servers from my three e-mail accounts was imported.
My mistake... All three SMTP accounts were imported, but the SMTP port setting for the GMail account was also incorrect.
Summary: Import Wizard does not correctly import POP/SMTP settings from Outlook Express → Import Wizard does not correctly import POP/SMTP port settings from Outlook Express
