Ever since I tried an upgrade to Thunderbird 3.0 I've been unable to keep my emails on the comcast.net server. Reverting to a Thunderbird 2.0 version has not helped; I've tried uninstalling (deleting everything) and reinstalling, but it's just not working.

Because I'm frequently switching back and forth from my laptop to my desktop as I work, I like having the emails download into Thunderbird on my desktop but leaving them on the comcast/SmartZone server as well, since I can then access them on my laptop.

Ever since the Thunderbird 3.0 fiasco, the messages disappear from the SmartZone/comcast server once they've downloaded onto my hard drive. Apparently if you have an IMAP server you can uncheck the sync, but comcast only supports pop.

Any suggestions as to what I can do to put this back to the way it was before? If not, any suggestions for other free email clients that won't have the same problem with sync?

Appreciate any help you can provide. This has taken on a new urgency, since I'm going to have to be spending more time out of town with a sick parent.

Thank you! I thought I had gone through all the settings, but I missed that obvious one. I feel stupid--but relieved. It worked.

Really appreciate it.
