I have been using Virgin Media Mail with an address for many years in conjunction with Windows Live Mail. As support for WLM ceased earlier this year I decided to try out Thunderbird. I have noticed that Thunderbird intermittently fails to download the full list of new mails from the server while WLM does.

Does anyone have any idea why this should happen?

How is the account set up in Thunderbird, as POP or IMAP? Find out using menu path Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->Server Type at the top right of the dialogue.
