    I am using Mozilla Thunderbird as an E mail client. They requested an update to Thunderbird 2. A pop-up came up informing me that it was not successful and was denied. I went to their website and tried to download Thunderbird 2 and this was denied. Now unable to get to my E mails or use it. Any ideas? I would appreciate any advice, Thanks Arnie

Thunderbird is downloading 1 Msg each time instead of downloading all messages at once

Thank you for using FixYa
Hi, I have used Thunderbird myself and decided to remove it due to limitations. From my experience I
would give it a couple of days and see if there is a problem with the mail server before trying a fix.
It seems that T. may be limited to 4 gig of mail for the inbox, or at least that is, from previous history.
Those who had a similiar problem. T. reported that the Inbox was full were directed to copy all
all their email into a Temp folder and then re-index their email by deleting the Inbox. I caution you on
doing this because when you do this you could lose all your email.

You may find more information on this in the Thunderbird Forums.

I hope this was useful and please comment if this was helpful to you.

Detecting a troyan in thunderbird.exe, AVG antivirus erased the link. I reinstalled thunderbird but without link with my old emails. Thank you for help

If your emails were deleted from the server, you can't recover them. Depending on how you re-installed Thunderbird they may still be on your harddrive. Try going to C:\Documents and Settings\YOUR NAME ON THE PC\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\iduqa5t7.default\Mail. IDUQA5T7.DEFAULT won't be the same on your PC. Look for the .xxxxxx.default folder. Also, you have to enable "hidden files and folder" in Control Panel>Folders to see the Application Data folder.
