User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.8.1.4) Gecko/20070515 Firefox/2.0.0.4
Build Identifier: 

Using SMTP with SSL encryption, Thunderbird timeouts too fast when using an overloaded server, It apparently does not use the value defined in mailnews.tcptimeout. When using a non encrypted connection the timeout value is correctly used.

Could be related to Bug #266853

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Increase to mailnews.tcptimeout to 600
2.Send a message using SMTP with SSL encryption using an slow server (mail.marcanoonline.com or any dreamhost mail server)
3.Wait :-P
Actual Results:  
Communications with the server timeouts too fast, not waits the 600 seconds configured

Expected Results:  
No timeout

The not usage of the timeout value looks like the cause of the problem, because it is known that sometimes I have no problems sending messages over SSL, and at does times the Dreamhost servers have better response times
