Not my first choice, but I'll try that later on tonight
anyone know a way to tell / configure TB not to download all inbox items?
update: I removed my account and perfomed these steps with no errors (green check)
1. Open the Thunderbird Mail application, click on Tools at the top of the window and then select Account Settings (usually the second from the bottom on the menu). Once these steps are completed, click on Account Actions and then Add Mail Account.
2. Please fill in your name or email address for 'Your name'. You will then enter your Email Address and password and check the box for Remember Password. You can then click Continue. If you receive a green check, you can click done.
loading all my inbox messages again, sending or forwarding a message still fails
Login to server smtp.hughes.net with username cvitullo failed
Try Account Settings. Is there a way to tell TB to download emails manually vs. automatically?
EDIT: You may want to ask here too: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/products/thunderbird

for now I'm going to try and stick with Thunderbird since it worked perfectly until this last issue.
Basically, all we're suggesting is that gradually moving to something like Gmail, Outllook or Yahoo Mail, all of which tend to be more reliable, and all of which you can take with you, might be to your benefit.
However, if you're comfortable with HughesNet's email, that's fine too.
@GabeU this has nothing to do with a confort levl but the fact I have all my accounts tied to hughesnet for validation / verification from banking to irs to ssa.....etc. this morning checking email using web, and t-bird I've not received any emails since the 9th, is there still a email issue?
update on not getting email: I found a message rule I setup via the email web client was sending ALL EMAILS to a specific folder I had setup for IBM corrospondance, so no emails at all went to the inbox, or stayed there. the rule I setup was specific to an email address yet ALL EMAIL went there. Note to self;
never setup a message filter rule using hughes net
Carmen, so all the missing emails were in the folder, then? Glad to hear they weren't lost.
Yes, from what I see the emails I was looking for were in my IBM folder, bad timing, I was buying a vehicle Saturday and trying to get my email on my phone - insurance verification and I could not get any email I had to actually call and talk to a CS agent lol
I'll stick with my need for now for hughesnet email since like I sad everything is tied to hughesnet email
yesterday, 07/12/21 thunderbird worked flaulessly, getting email, sending email no issues, no need to enter my password. Today getting email working, sending is again failing and asking to enter my password. Something changed? or is this the typical open systems BS stuff that happens, one day it works, the next.....maybe ?
