Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make
Ubuntu better. The "Global Search" feature in Thunderbird simply indexes
all of the mail saved locally so that it can be easily searched within
Thunderbird. A separate setting deals with how Thunderbird handles mail
on a server, the default being to download a copy and leave the original
on the server. This setting can be changed manually by going to Edit ->
Account Settings -> Synchronization and Storage. This setting can be
changed before the mail is downloaded by selecting "Manual Setup" during
the account setup process. However, if you feel that Thunderbird should
provide this option in the automatic account setup, or that it should
warn users that the default setting is to download all emails, then we
can see about submitting a feature request.
