    When I open Thunderbird it begins to look for email immediately, and
    keeps checking email whenever I am online, as well as keeps asking me
    to reconnect to the internet when I am offline. I DO NOT want to to
    check for email until I manually tell it to do so. Those popups
    telling me I have email is enough to drive me batty. I can not find
    any setting where I can shut off the automatic checking for email.
    How do I do this?

    Thanks

    tools / account settings / server settings / check for new messages
    every ___ minutes

    and while there make sure "Check for new messages at startup" is unchecked

    Also you can turn the popup alert off by going to Tools> Options>
    Advanced> General> Config Editor and set mail.biff.show_alert to false
