I'm assuming this is a 'Pop' mail account. Possibly a log jam.

Logon to webmail account using a browser and empty the 'Spam' folder. In Thunderbird click on 'Get Messages'

If still stuck: In webmail account, delete the email which keeps being downloaded and also the oldest not downloaded email. In Thunderbird click on 'Get Messages'.

Is this a POP mail account? did the above work?
