Thunderbird going slow

Postby chrissiehope » Fri Jun 21, 2019 5:04 pm

In the past couple of days, I've noticed that Thunderbird is going quite slowly when downloading emails that used to whizz into my Inbox.

It has just done an update, & I hoped it would sort this out, but it hasn't.

Is anyone else having this problem ?

Not noticed a problem here with Thunderbird, latest version.
Sent an email and it was received, and in my wife's inbox, in less than 20 seconds.

Is thunderbird the only internet accessing program that appears to be slow? Have you checked your internet speed?

Not noticed any issues with my install of thunderbird on Win10.

Webpages are loading at normal speed, it's just Thunderbird that's suddenly gone slow - asimple one-line message takes several seconds to download, whereas normally it would arrive in an instant. it's only started in the past couple of days, and the update doesn't seem to have made any difference.

Good morning !
Well, whatever it was seems to have resolved itself - back to speedy email downloads :-)

Good-o. Maybe there was an issue with the mail server that you collect your mail from that's now been fixed.
