Try looking at your mailbox with webmail, there may be a corrupted email in the list which is causing your email client to timeout. See this thread for details of this problem.

Have a look using webmail and remove any blank messages that are there.
There has been an apparent problem with these blank messages causing mail to "Lock up"
