No, it doesn't matter how frequently you check your email, but the time before your email program decides the server is inactive and shows the time out message. It is in your email programs settings, this is an example of OE's time out setting:
Find the equvilent in your email program and increase it.
I can't find that option in Thunderbird... :(

Do you have a lot of emails left on the server?  I noticed that my access time increased dramatically when the mail client needed to sort through a lot of messages to find the new ones.
Yes, normally I left the messages on server, but if I delete them in Thunderbird, I set the Thunderbird to also delete in server...

You can see that config in the picture above...

Are you sure it's not a problem with the firewall settings?
I've tried right now and Thunderbird is working perfectly with 4.6.639  ;)

It is there, people have changed it in the past (see alanrf's post).

When I first installed Avast (a couple of months ago) I too experienced timeouts.  I increased the timeout in Thunderbird from the default 45 seconds to 120 seconds and have had no timeouts since.

I don't use Thunderbird, but I would look in the same sort of area, Tools, Accounts, select the account and select properties. I know thunderbird doesn't have an off-line help file so you will have to dig around to find it.

Maybe the version could be the problem...

Thunderbird does not provide a way of changing the POP3 timeout in the GUI.  You need to create a user preference override.

You can do this by creating (or adding to) a file called user.js in  your Thunderbird profile folder. 

To change the POP3 timeout add the lines:

// Increase pop3 timeout:
user_pref("mail.pop3_response_timeout", 90);

In this example the timeout is set to 90 seconds (instead of the default 45 seconds of Thunderbird). Adjust the time as you need.

Thanks for that, I'm sure it will be a benefit for other Thunderbird/avast! users.

Thanks Alan...  Can we tweak more? Is there a list of possibilities?

Yep, the solution to work with avast!, but it works very well with other AV, so I think that the avast developers should make something about this...
