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
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?
