For people who are looking for a way to add exceptions, have a look to "Get Selected Mails", which purpose is to get mails in more versatile ways: inclusion and exclusion of accounts, definition of different profiles, etc.
Works relatively well. However, I notice that the button doesn't get ALL email from an account. As soon as I run the 'get Mail' button, I can immediately select the account and get TBird to get messages and TBird downloads many more emails that the button didn't get. Seems like there a time limit on how long the button accesses each account? I have 6 email accounts that I use daily and I have to manually download the emails again to get all of my messages.
I am a little confused. Where do I get the Thunderbird menu--or is it attached to Fox. Can I get an email to you or do you just collect mail? I plan on closing out 2 emails but will keep gmail and AOL, would an email address from Thunderbird. I am tired of all the questions/changes--almost like you are a criminal in your our account. Please advise what my next step should email@example.com (closing that one soon), Thank you.
