hi all, i have a main password on Thunderbird. Pop-up asks password BUT on top of screen showing my inbox and mails! NOT SAFE
The inbox shows with my emails, and contents of email. Furthermore, annulating and killing the popup makes it disappear, but then you can click on a next email, and see its contents as well. Furthermore, you can remove the popup again, and click on a different folder in the left column, and it shows, all its emails, and after removing the password popup again, you can click on those emails, and see the contents. isn't that VERY strange? On the image, you see the contents of the first email which is for making my account to be able to ask this very question. Thanks

The pop up is asking for password so that Thunderbird can connect to server to see if there are any new mails to download or connect to server to send. You can see emails in the folders because they were previously downloaded.
If you are sharing that computer with other people, then each person should have their own 'User Account' with a password. You start computer and then logon to your own 'User Account' to see your desktop. Your profile name folder and all email accounts that belong to you should be within the User Account. This means if other people do not know your User Account password then they cannot logon to your desktop nor see your emails etc. Creating User Accounts is the standard practise when more than one person uses a computer.
