Hi guys


The title for this topic isn't quite correct.


I can send emails on all my email addresses. But as of March 25/2016 I haven't been able to receive emails on my main email address. Except for one email over and over again, but its send date is stuck at March 25/2016.


I can read the emails I'm not receiving, by going to my ISP website. However, as of yesterday I have re-directed those emails to come to me via another of my emails. Both come to my PC with Thunderbird.


The only email I am receiving on my main email address, is in itself neither spam or bogus. In fact it is, or at least it started out being sent from a credible and responsible source. They are a reputable online petition company, one that I have been signed up with for some years.


My thinking is that this is a fault or glitch in Thunderbird. I could uninstall that particular email address, then re-install it. But my concern is, would I lose all my other data and drafts and then not regain then after the re-install. Bit worrying.
