Description Brian 2011-03-14 10:31:59 PDT
User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.9.2.15) Gecko/20110303 Firefox/3.6.15 (.NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.04506.648; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.21022; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

Received the following error message "Unable to connect to your IMAP server. You may have exceeded the maximum number of connections to this server. If so, use the Advanced IMAP Server Setting dialog to reduce the number of cached connections.", when I try receive messages or do a File-Empty Trash command. Tried changing the "Maximum number of server connections to cache" from 5 to 1, and various other combination's, no help. Restarted TB and restarted XP, still fails. I use Google IMAP Sever.

2.File, Empty Trash
3.
Actual Results:  
On Mail Toolbar, Get Mail, Get All Messages, 

Expected Results:  
Get the above error message.

Problem was Firewall Setting on Verizon DSL Westell 7500 modem.  It was set to 	Typical Security (Medium), changed to Minimum Security (Low).
