Thunderbird email problem

Downloaded Thunderbird to replace dear old OE because of my upcoming move to W7.

It imported my address book and all previous details, but when I try to actually USE it,after a few seconds, it tells me it has timed out.

I have not yet succeeded in sending or receiving one message!
Is there a way I can make it wait just a little longer? my email provider is gmail.

I would check your settings, the incoming should be
imap.googlemail.com
If you want to use IMAP which will sync all your mails on Thunderbird and the Google server.

and make sure the incoming port is set to 993

To send mail use your existing SMTP server.
