My Yahoo email account was lost and restored by Yahoo. It was always maintained in Thunderbird, but following the Yahoo restoration Thunderbird is trying to re-download over 2,000 old emails that were never lost. How do I stop this? Thank you.

Thanks. I presumed that was the case. I also presume there is no method by which you can stop the download, correct?

Not and have it work correctly afterwards.

The yahoo restoration will have loaded them to the server as "new" mails, so what is happening is normal in that situation.
