Bought a new laptop with Windows 7 and decided not to purchase MS Outlook. Downloaded and installed Thunderbird. Seems to work just fine, except for one thing: When downloading emails, it tends to download just a few emails (anywhere from <1 to 60-some) and then hang. It loses communication with the email server, and I have to wait for a timeout error message before I can try again.
I've queried the Thunderbird forum over at Mozilla, but so far have received no responses. Can anyone here tell me how to set things up so it downloads ALL emails at one shot? This is not a showstopper, just a major annoyance.
Appreciate any help anyone can offer.
