Thunderbird download incoming mails automatically

Can someone let me know which setting I should tweak so that Thunderbird automatically downloads new e-mails please when it is booted up rather than me having to 'Get Mail' every time.

I think the easiest way of doing this is to go to -Tools -Account settings -Server settings -Tick 'check for new messages on startup' -then (next down) tick the 'check for new messages every' and change input box to your choice (default is 10 mins).

If you have more than one email acc setup, you will have to make these changes to each email acc.

Hope this helps.
