I use the option "leave messages on server until I delete them", as I triple boot and like the messages in each.
However today on my ubuntu installation, thunderbird seems to be downloading the whole inboxes again from each of my pop accounts. Its not doing it on thunderbird or outlook on xp.
What could have caused this, and is there any way to stop it? Ive got thousands of messages and Im on dialup speeds just now and its killing.
