When in Thunderbird, I press the Get Mail button to retrieve messages from yahoo account Thunderbird cuts them instead. When I go directly into my yahoo account all my inbox emails are gone.
I wanted to have them copied by Thunderbird and still left in yahoo.
Please assist on getting that set up correctly.
I am new to this.

Left original emails viewable in Yahoo and just copied them to Thunderbird.
Go to Tools -> Account Settings -> Select 'Server Settings' under the name of your Yahoo account -> Check 'Leave messages on server' -> Press Ok. See http://kb.mozillazine.org/How_do_I_put_messages_back_on_the_POP3_server if you wish to place messages back onto the server.
