Are you sure you have activated either the POP or the IMAP services? If you only have one active are you sure that is the one you are using in thunderbird?

Regarding to your second question. You may set the file sharing module as PDC (Primary Domain Controller) and the selected domain may be join by your Windows XP professional hosts.

i hv managed to solve out the first problem, the problem is at the user name, it must be in complete name such as name@domain.

and the second one, i've set the ebox to become a PDC. and i try to join my windows host to the domain, still got prob in the authenticate problem. i've used name and name@domain, still won't do. any idea?

sorry for those newbie question

In order to add a machine to the eBox domain, you must use a user with administration rights. To do so, you must check the administration rights on file sharing section within an edition of a user.

You must use the single name from the user and the domain set in File Sharing section.
