User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 6.1; en-US) AppleWebKit/532.8 (KHTML, like Gecko) Chrome/4.0.302.3 Safari/532.8

Since i upgraded Thunderbird from 2.0 to 3.0 i can't download my messages from the pop server.
I have the option leave messages on the server and when a try to get the messages i get this error:

"The POP3 mail server (mail.xxx.com) does not support UIDL or XTND XLST, which are required to implement the ``Leave on Server'', ``Maximum Message Size'' or ``Fetch Headers Only'' options. To download your mail, turn off these options in the Server Settings for your mail server in the Account Settings window."

In thunderbird 2.0 i was able to get the messages.

Reproducible: Always
Are you sure your server is pop ? these commands apply to imap.

Can you create a pop log following the instructions at https://wiki.mozilla.org/MailNews:Logging , sanitize the log and attach the log here ?

Yes, it's pop. I have the e-mail configured in Evolution and also tried in Microsoft Outlook and it work well. Only in Thunderbird has that problem.

I guess next;
  Tb2 or older wrongly implemented "Leave Messages on Server",
  a. after RETR of a mail, don't issue DELE for the mail
  b. when a mail is deleted by user, issue DELE for the mail upon next download 
  even if UIDL / XTND XLST Message-Id is not supported by server,
  (correct implementation of "Leave Messages on Server" is impossible.) 
  based on wrong user requests.
  It caused mail loss after mail box reorganization by POP3 server.
  So, Tb3 stopped the wrong implementation, and issues the error message.
