Yep. It's annoying as hell. It's also why I dumped Thunderbird and went
way over the edge to the dark side and use Outlook on my desktop at the
office. Since I use corporate google mail for my mail provider I always use
the web based client when I'm away from the office.

Subject: [PCTECH] Thunderbird Snafu

Had several emails this morning. Three, in order, were:

An ad from the local grocery

Daily notice from the local newspaper

Notice of direct deposit from my bank

I've already been to the grocery this week so I whacked the grocery ad
without opening it. (I have TBird set up so that the text of the emails
doesn't show up in a separate pane, just a list with the sender,
description, and date/time.)

When I opened the newspaper's email, I saw the grocery ad.

When I opened the bank's email, I saw the top of the grocery ad (not the
whole email, mind you).

I went to the Trash folder and opened the grocery ad; it was, indeed, the
grocery ad.

I shut down TBird and restarted. Still same issue.

Since then, I received another email. Opened it, and it was what I normally
would have expected (i.e., it wasn't screwed up).

Anyone seen this before?
