I have recently set up thunderbird 60 on Ubuntu desktop which is also having windows as the alternate boot(Dual boot - windows and linux). I am sharing the same account across the two OS and the mails already downloaded on one OS, is getting downloaded again on the other OS. That is, if I have downloaded one email on windows thunderbird, the same mail is getting downloaded again in ubuntu thunderbird again. Thus I see 2 emails for each message received.
I found my problem already raised by another user, which has been archived: [https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/que.../1250898|here]
In my view, the problem in the above issue thread was not resolved; instead, the workaround of setting mails to be deleted on the POP server worked for him.
For me, I cannot delete the emails from the server and adopt the solution given in the thread. Thus I have to find why this is happening. I have second account configured which does not have this problem. There seems to be some issue with the folders etc, I have tried repairing folders, compacting them and even reconfiguring the account, but I have not been successful till now. It must be some some mistake I am making during configuration or something I am missing, I am not sure.
Thanks in advance!
