      downloading Skymail with Thunderbird

      Hi, I've just gone back to using Thunderbird as my e-mail ap after getting Sky to synchronise them. (it's a long story!) Now, after several log ins it's still downloading (transfering?) thousands of old e-mails. I get the feeling if I let it complete then delete all the ones not needed it'll just repeat this operation next time I start. Is there a way to just download mails recieved from now please? Tnx, Kenwood

      Did you set it up for POP or IMAP?

      Using POP, go to your mail webpage, click the Settings link, then the Forwarding and Pop/IMAP link, use the drop down box next to 2. 'When messages are accessed with PoP' to select Delete Sky Mail's copy.
