Subject: Thunderbird: how to turn off the automatic getting of mail on
I remember turning off this Thunderbird option when first starting to
use Thunderbird. I don't know what TB version it was but it was during
I have just had to install Thunderbird to a new PC. Now I'm using TB
I've gone through the TB options, to change the settings to my
preferences. I cannot find where to turn off the automatic getting of
mail on the startup of Thunderbird.
I prefer to start TB to finish dealing with the unread messages. Then,
at my convenience, I press the F5 to get new messages.
Is the option gone from TB version 52?
Thanks for any help.
