[ubuntu-uk] Problem with one mailbox in Thunderbird

Do you have the settings set to leave messages on the server or not?

And where is the mailbox saved for the one that keeps losing emails? You 
should be certain they are set in a location that is always going to be 
writeable and not going to be unavailable at any time (e.g. USB drive).

I have not had this problem, lots of email accounts, all set up for POP3 
access, messages left on server until deleted.
