Navigate to Tools -> Account Settings -> Server Settings
Uncheck the following:
"Check for new messages on startup"
"Check for new messages every NN minutes"
"Automatically download new messages".
This happens because Dovecot limits the maximum IMAPconnections per IPto just 10. This may be fine for a single client side IPbut if an entire office or multiple users are behind one IPor a single heavy user is active then you will get bizarre errors in your e-mail clients such as "Password Incorrect" or similar in Thunderbird. It won't be obvious on the client side as to what the problem is and they will probably just think the server is misconfi........
In Thunderbird in a very large folder suddenly all of my e-mail list became blank/white even though you could click on the invisible/white/blank lines and it would show the e-mails. Itried to close and reopen but only going to Folder -> Properties and clicking Repair Folder fixed it (basically it had to redownload/rebuild the entire index and all e-mails).........
This error seems to happen randomly and especially when trying to send e-mails. Apparently it's a long-standing GNome bug but is also partially the default of Thunderbird depending on who you ask. There is no known fix that I'm aware of except to upgrade gnome and the gvfs package but this is not an option for older versions/distributions.

Here's a proven example of what a bad hard drive can do, it was technically functioning OKin a RAID array but the system became extremely low and the load become high and IOWAIT was even higher and I always thought it was a bad application. The truth is that this failing 1TBHitachi has slowly gotten worse and caused huge slowdowns, (eg. 100% load on Thunderbird waiting for e-mails to load etc..). After swapping it out, tabs change instantly, emails are not lagged, and........
Type that from the command prompt and you can choose, that's the only way you can do it whichI find a bit silly.........
I closed program by program untilI found the culprit, it's baffling how the cause was Thunderbird but then again it does use a lot of memory and I have thousands of messages between dozens of mailboxes.
But still I don't think this should happen and Xorg shouldn't allow this either.
So for those who have mysteriously high CPUusage from Xorg start closing program by program until you find the culprit.
The interesting thing is that after reloading it, the Xor........
The best way is to use rsync, I've set it up so it doesn't copy unnecessary files, or at least ones I'm sure aren't needed.
Here is the rsync command Iused (adapt to your specific Thunderbird profile location):
rsync -hazv email@example.com:/home/user/.thunderbird/sbrer.default/* /home/user/.thunderbird/4nyb0.default/ --exclude=global* --exclude=Cache --exclude=ImapMail --exclude=Mail

Basically it seems that Thunderbird only remembers/savesfor the first/default identity account. It is very annoying when the signature gets placed at the bottom and another huge oversight on Mozilla's part.
Fortunately you can hack/manually set this setting.

E-mail (Thunderbird) with GnuPG encryptionThis is great tool for Mozilla Thunderbird which allows you to encrypt your e-mails so only you and the receiver can view it even if the e-mail is intercepting or obtained by another person.
The only small catch is that you of course have to install an extension to Thunderbird and then configure each account you want to use it with. Really it can probably all be done in a few minutes and the effort is worth it.........
Yes, Iadmit I finally got bitten by the hype as much as I can usually see through it all. Keep in mind this review is of the "stock" phone, no jailbreaking yet which is what really unleashes the customizability and whyI bought iPhone.
I had better things to say about this phone before buying it, and it is a great phone, perhaps the best on the market by far, if not because of the Mac OS port onto the iPhone and all the apps, etc, etc.
With that said........
