Client is ThunderBird. This is set to automatic[continuously accepting mail]during the course of the day I can get 100 or mails- mostly Freecycle type of thing. Which I continuously monitor and delete as I go- retaining personal and other stuff of interest, Yesterday afternoon following a maintenance session,Thunderbird came up with message - failed passing password -POP3- my address-Store 35/80. This happened repeatedly so I shut it down and resolved to have a look this morning. This morning all was normal -Thunderbird delivered - but only one mail- So the question is - Did a batch go AWOL?
