    Subject line says it all.

    After upgrading to Tbird 3.5, NG messages have to be manually
    downloaded. I don't see any setting to auto-download. Am I missing it?

  3. Do you mean headers, or bodies?

  5. OK, got it now.

    Not sure what you mean by auto-download, but in my case I select the
    news-server name in the folders pane, and click on "Get Mail".. Works
    for me.

    Yeah, that'll work. But before the upgrade, when I opened the program,
    the headers would automatically download without me doing anything.

    I know, I know--- how lazy can you get ;-)

  7. Sort of works here like that as well, now you mention it.

    Click on a newsgroup name and the headers do download.

    Maybe you connection is not up when you open Thunderbird?
