How to get all email in thunderbird not just new ones


Is it possible to get all emails in thunderbird even already read messages like how it works in MS Outlook? Right now it just gets new ones if I read emails using another client or using my phone they won't get fetched.

Best Answer

Getting all messages in Thunderbird is the default.

Did you accidentily click on the buttton [Unread] above the mails? That would cause it to download all mail but only display the unread ones.
