I use XP Home SP2 and TB 1.5.01. I have TB check for email every ten minutes automatically and when I get some the tone sounds and the envelope icon shows in my sys tray, but the mails not showing in TB. I still have to select get mail by hand to actually receive it to view it in TB.
Is that the way it's suppose to work. Seems a little quirky to me.
Thanks in advance for the help.

Go to Tools/ Account Settings/ Server Settings, there is an option to check called "automatically download new messages".

This Thunderbird FAQ is a good resource.

Reflect, repent, and reboot.

Thanks for the speedy reply. I'll try that. I'm sure that's what I've been missing.
Thanks again.
Floyd
