What kind of error could that be? Is the firewal blocking outgoing
packets, or simply reporting some kind of error?

Would it be possible to track the application responsible? I think it is
Thunderbird for the 143 port ( The other, to port 80, no

My guess is this:

Thunderbird has a message that is that evil thing HTML Mail and has an
embedded image which is is trying to retrieve.

I have that functionality disabled except or sites that I consider
"safe". YMMV.

Why it might be accessing yet another IMAP port I don;t know, unless you
have a configuration error.

Does "netstat -p" show anything?
