I think he's paid a company to provide email services for his own domain
for quite a while.  His domain's MX record points to a secureserver.net
domain name.
refers to that domain name so perhaps it's something to do with GoDaddy.

It's unclear where the problem lies.  I'd first look for a precise error
message from Thunderbird.  If that yields nothing then examine
Thunderbird's configuration and then try to manually make the same
connections.  For example, if the connection details were what's on the
above page then each of these can be tried in turn.

    openssl s_client -connect    imap.secureserver.net:993
    openssl s_client -connect     pop.secureserver.net:995
    openssl s_client -connect smtpout.secureserver.net:465

Each should connect and await a command.  Entering ‘QUIT’ exits.

And as Terry said, contact the supplier as they can probably see what's
going wrong in their log files.

Cheers, Ralph.
