Two weeks later....   ;D

You're at your dad's, you have T/Bird on his computer you may very well be able to set up his email account using his present email address and Password and get them direct!!

If not, then use Stick, Select All  and Paste them into Message area....

Hallmark, fingers crossed this may be the case but I can't count on it once their VM service has been stopped which is why I'm trying to pre-empt things.

The Tbird help pages are useful and I've been exploring them, but I can't find an answer to everything.  For instance, Tbird downloaded the VM messages earlier today during the configuration process but it doesn't seem to have downloaded all of them.  VM webmail showing 217 messages in inbox and a similar number sent but Tbird only showing 166 in inbox and no sign of a sent mail folder.  I've tried clicking get messages but it's not finding any more.  Any idea what might be going on?  I could understand very old emails being left behind but why no sent mail at all?

T/Bird will only get messages from Virgin simply because there are none sent from T/Bird

Never used Virgin but is there an option to Select All....then Forward and send them to Inbox??

Thanks for the explanation hallmark.  I'll have another look at Dad's VM webmail tomorow, done enough for one day!

Yes.

If I send you an email, you reply, then I reply and you reply back..... that is often considered as 1 email in "conversation" mode.


Similarly if I write a letter, send it in post, you reply on same paper and post it to me..... I write my reply on same paper and post it to you

There is 1 letter  but sent 3 times in mail.
