    Default Thunderbird Get Mail problem

    New Tbird installation clearing 3 pop accounts. Finally got all setup (bloody XTRA!!!) but now have a problem with the "Get Mail" button. Clicking it does nothing but clicking the down arrow and then an option does get mail.

    This is the only time I have seen this but googling shows others have had this problem going back years. Couldn't find a solution that works, though. The accounts are using the global mail boxes and the box to "Include this server for new mail" is checked. Darned if I can see any diffs from my good systems.

    I have also deleted the .msf files and tbird re-created them but this didn't work.

    Anyone have an answer?????

    Are those accounts in the 'local folders' section of TB?

    Yes, they are. However, the first account I set up was to its own account (didn't intend this but it happened!). Later, I changed it to the local folders. This is different from my other setups so maybe this is the complicating factor? Who knows! I couldn't see any solution from googling.
