Yes, *all* of my IMAP connections use SSL (running on port 993; 
wrenhunt.com). My local IMAP server is on its own box and separate and 
different than my clients (Windows and Mac boxes).

I've posted the 2 log files here:


These logs reflect me moving 2 emails from one IMAP server (fastmail.fm) 
  to my own box (wrenhunt.com). The first 2 work fine, then the 3rd 
times out. The client in this case was Thunderbird running on 
Mac OS X  10.4.8

Thanks for your assistance in debugging this sucker!
