Sorry to be long winded but I assume there is a bug with the pop3 mail collection as all else has been eliminated. Manual download of pop3 is fine and messages are left on the Server InBox { provide web or pop3 access} but when the "Check Server every # minutes" option is used it apears that after collection Thunderbird moves some or all accessed messages into the { e-mail server} "Trash" despite the "Leave message on server" tick box being ticked. 
I thought my account was being hacked as when I loged on to the account I found random e-mails in the"Trash" which should not have been there and which I did not put there. After several long discussions with support I decided to change all Thunderbird "Server settings" so that only manual "Get Mail" is possibe and that seems to have stopped the problem.

Reproducible: Always

Actual Results:  
The problem stopped when auto pop3 collection was disabled, no other IPs had accessed my pop3 server that rather points to a problem with Thunderbird "Server settings" Either or both "Check for new messages at start up" or "Check for new messages every # minutes"
Can you easily reproduce ?

If so can you capture a pop log as described at <> and attach that log to the bug using the link above named add an attachment ?
