I can get APOP to work....but when I enable SSL I then see issues.
It seems to me that thunderbird tried some different auth than I was 
allowing. I dont recall as I tried so many different POP3 servers.

I will try it again someday and post more concrete answers.

I had trouble getting pegasus/eudora/thunderbird mail all to work with 
qpopper (APOP/TLS) over port 110.
