    I can NOT get TB 1.0.6. to download mail, Netscape, Mozilla, and
    Internet Explorer also will not receive mail! They all will SEND mail!
    I can receive and send WEB MAIL !!! Everything worked fine until a few
    days ago. Newsgroups seem to be working both ways. Thanks in advance...!

    In Thunderbird, delete the email account and re-enter it making sure
    all entries are correct.

    I did what you said here...and still no luck...Grrrrrrr!!

  4. Try it with another client. Since Outlook Express is available on every
    Windows installation, try that. If it still won't work, then there must
    be some problem with the server (you didn't mention what type of server
    you're using, POP, IMAP, Webmail).

    If you use an antivirus or firewall program, disable its incoming mail scan.

    If you receive an error message when trying to download mail, what does
    it say?

    What version of Windows are you using?

    I use Win XP Home SP2, ZoneAlarm (the free version) and
    Norton Antivirus 2003. Win XP's firewall is turned off.

    ZA's Antivirus Monitor is on, but all it does is tell me when NAV is
    turned off or the virus definitions are out-of-date. NAV is set to scan
    incoming and outgoing mail. Both work fine for me with TB 1.0.6.

    The latest version of the free Zone Alarm is:

    Your version 5.x is way out of date. Most problems I've seen
    attributable to ZA are with people using out-of-date versions. Your
    choice whether to upgrade or not.

    Thanks for the tip. Version 5.x kept telling me it was up-to-date.
