SMTP servers are only involved when sending messages. To receive messages, the IMAP server is used. Try clearing any stored password for the IMAP server. Restart Thunderbird to ensure that the stored password is cleared from memory. The next time you "Get Mail" Thunderbird will ask for the password which you can enter and then check the box to remember the value.
