* Which version of Thunderbird? Check Help>About for the version number.
* What kind of mail - POP, IMAP?
* Do you regularly compact your folders? Weekly or more often is strongly recommended. Check http://kb.mozillazine.org/Compacting_folders for more information on compacting folders.

Everything I can find online seems to indicate Suddenlink.net offers only POP access.
(Suddenlink page for configuring Outlook Express)

Also, what are your TBird settings here?:

Menu Path:
    [In Windows & OSX]: Tools | Account Settings, or
    [In *nix]: Edit | Account Settings
    .. then, in the left pane, under your suddenlink.net account, Server settings
In the right pane, what are your settings for:

[ ] Leave messages on server
    [ ] For at most [XX] days
    [ ] Until I delete them
