If you're a beginning user of Thunderbird, you may have many questions about how to get started once you've downloaded and installed the application. A good place to begin is this tutorial. It will walk you through the basic setup and usage of Thunderbird, including:

One topic the tutorial doesn't address is keeping a copy of your messages on the POP3 server after you check for new messages with Thunderbird, so that you can still access those messages using webmail. In Thunderbird the default setting is to delete all messages from the server after downloading. If you want to keep your messages available for webmail access, you need to check the checkmark at "Tools -> Account Settings -> Server Settings -> Leave messages on server". Do this before you download your mail for the first time.
