How can I prevent Thunderbird from automatically getting my email when I start the program? It used to do it until I updated to version 55. I want to get my mail only when I click on Get Message, and I cannot find anything in the Tools>Options area that addresses this.

Moving to Thunderbird Support.

If you look under Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings do you not see an option to "Check for new messages on startup"?

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.

Thanks again for your help. I don't know why I didn't notice that before. #-o

Have a nice Christmas and a fruitful New Year!
