7 Samuel, I've had similar problems with Gmail, but I'm not using
8 thunderbird. I was getting mail using standard fetchmail, delivering
9 them to a local maildir and then using good old mutt to display them.
10 I had to do this twice in the past, because my mailbox would fill and
11 I had to empty it, so I could keep receiving mails (*yes*, that's it,
12 I filled my 2.5gb inbox twice).
13 The problem I had was getting the mails in some strange order, and
14 only by the hundreds. As I had about 30000 emails, I had to keep
15 fetching and deleting until I got all mail. It's a bit weird, but I'm
16 pretty sure this isn't an issue with thunderbird, but an issue with
17 Google's POP server. It just doesn't show all your messages if you
18 have lots of them. Maybe they do this to avoid trouble, as if the
19 connection is broken before the client sends the QUIT command, the
20 messages are not deleted.
21 Of course, I had Gmail set to delete mail already received via POP, I
22 haven't tried without this set.
