So have you tried telneting to that port on the remote imap server? What
error messages came up when you launched mozilla? Does it just not connect
or does mozilla become unresponsive? If it does not connect but all of the
profiles are still there try tcpdump to see if it is talking to the imap
Or have you looked at user rights on your home directory? ls -al | grep
.moz I have seen rights change and mess mozilla up.
Just shots in the dark.
