I use Thunderbird in both work and at home and I normally have the 'Check for mail' set to 30 minutes for both. What i would love is to be able to schedule that checking on a daily or even better hourly basis.

The problem is that I have to double up on a lot of message maintenance because my work mail has downloaded mail overnight as has my home account. I then delete unwanted email at home but I also have to do the exact same when I get to work. If I could tell my work instance of Thunderbird not to try and download mail between the hours of 7pm till 8am and never on weekends then I wouldn't have that problem.

Why not just turn thunderbird off when you leave work? Or use imap...
