thunderbird not working for yahoomail

Hi Folks,

I just installed and set-up my yahoomail account on thunderbird, im using Linux. It downloaded mails from 2003 to August 2006 and then stopped. Where are my other emails or how do i get them?

I keep getting the error:

"The RETR command did not succeed. Error retrieving a message. Mail server pop.mail.yahoo.com responded: inactivity timeout"

or, when i try to send an email (which i haven't been successful in yet) it also get:
"connection to SMTP server smtp.mail.yahoo.com timed out".

Please help me as i really would like to view my emails offline.

Thanking you in advance

Alan
