    Using thunderbird with "leave mail on server" checked.
    But, once every few weeks all mail gets automatically downloaded, creating duplicate emails.
    Anyone know why this is happening?

    Using Current version, but rolling back to Release, to see if that fixes it

    This has nothing to do with the server-side software and everything to do with the mail client.

    The POP3 protocol does not include features such as leaving mail on the server and so it is up to the mail client to manage this. As you have seen, this does not always work properly.

    If you want to use such features, use IMAP and not POP3.

    Hey, thanks for the response.
    That's what I thought, especially since this person apparently had issues with Helm also
    .... and have pointed the client to the thunderbird forums.

    Was just wondering if anyone else had experienced this....

    Cheers :D
