Moving to Thunderbird Support.

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.
What version of Thunderbird?
Do you have an auto-reply filter set up in that installation?

It is setup as POP. I'm on version 45.8.0. I do not have an auto-reply filter set up now.

In that case, even though you are running a Mac, have you checked for malware on that system?

Terminology check:

When you say it is sending old mails, do you mean your TBird is re-sending old messages you had sent before, or do you mean you are receiving copies of your incoming mail that you have received before?
