I'm using Thunderbird 15.0.1 Windows 7 x64. I figured out the issue few updates ego. Once I tried to turn off all add-ons, but its not helps.

I have only one POP e-mail account (and it is default), in "Server" settings checked box for "Check for new mail every 5 minutes", "Automatically download new messages", "Leave message on server", "For at most 14 days", "Until I delete them".

How to fix it?

This question came from our site for power users of web applications.

Do you have some way of knowing whether this has to do with the server side of things. Is this your own email? If so, who is hosting it? –  Josiah Oct 3 '12 at 15:25
this is MS Exchange corporative email. But before few Thundebird updates everything was ok. So I suppose its nothing wrong with the server. –  BBK Oct 4 '12 at 10:40
Just to clarify some things. You have no add-ons or themes correct? –  Josiah Oct 4 '12 at 14:47
I do not have themes but I do have add-ons. So once I disabled all of them and nothing changed. –  BBK Oct 5 '12 at 8:40
What a second. "But before few Thunderbird updates everything was ok" You mean you only had this problem when Thunderbird updated? –  Josiah Oct 5 '12 at 12:25

I have the same problem. I think it occurred with the TB 13.0. I was told by the hosting provider, that this is because of some changes in TB's new version, and they gonna set their servers to work with the changes, soon. Yet, there is still no solution. So I had to switch off all those options, except "Leave on server", leaving the subsequent options unchecked. And it works for me.
