With some anti-virus (and anti-spam) programs, simply disabling the
e-mail scanning function doesn't really disable it. It simply tells the
program not to flag any messages. It still processes all the messages
and may still cause send/receive problems. What you may need to do is
uninstall the anti-virus program, then reinstall it using a custom
install option and unselect the e-mail scanning component for
installation.

Depending on how the anti-virus installed itself, it's entirely possible
that it is scanning e-mail in WLM and not Thunderbird.

If you change the Bad account POP3 on port 110 without SSL like the Good
account, does it work then?
