Thunderbird suffers from an insane default. in your imap accout settings,
you *must* set the folder sync size to the last 60 days (example) else TB
will sync *all* of your mail. I blame dvelopers who live in "bandwidthless
world".

Look for this setting, I can't give exact info without a pc or TB..
