I don't use Windows, but Ubuntu 16.04, but I see some parts that are red too:

start log part:

I did find the place to change the SSL time-out and made it 8 seconds.

The error above was less than one second, so that should not make the difference in this case ;-)

I can also tell this error was from the connection with Google imap not the new xs4all imap account

I do not know yet if the new account with the xs4all server gives errors too.
