I have two mail accounts that I have deprecated, one I do not have login information for anymore, the other I would like thunderbird to stop downloading emails from (as they are forwarded to a current email address).
I have not been able to find a way to perform this.
I have tried going to
Synchronisation & Storage >
Message Synchronizing >
Advanced and unselecting every mailbox tickbox under download as I thought this would stop them downloading (this has not happened).
I cannot find any other settings that can do this.
The only approach I can think of is changing the account information on the mailbox so that it cannot connect but I think this will lead to thunderbird prompting for a password every time. The only other approach is deleting the account and moving the mail somewhere else for storage, but I prefer having it in one place for a universal interface should I need to search old emails.
Does anyone know of a way to stop thunderbird synchronizing an account, without unintended consequences such as prompting for passwords?
