  If you're really connecting to localhost:143 in thunderbird then
 that is an oddity.  I'd be tempted to suggest the settings are confused
 and you're really going elsewhere.

  However it should be easy enough to test.  What happens if you

   telnet localhost 143

  If you see a prompt/banner/response then it is running and the
 error message we all diagnosed from is confused at best, or wrong at

  If you see no response, or connection refused, then the error message
 was valid and your thunderbird setup is not as described.
