I'm running Win 10 and about 10 days ago I got an update for my Thunderbird Mail program. Afterwards I could see some items are now in color but the uploading of a single email now takes 3x or 4x as long as before. This morning I got an error message when I tried to receive my incoming email. I rebooted my PC but still got the error message. Later in the day I could receive my new emails.
Anyone else having the slow uploading issue? Any solutions on how to speed program up?

What was the full text of the error message(s)?
How is the account set up, as POP or IMAP? In Thunderbird the menu path is Tools->Account Settings->Server Settings->Server Type at the top right of the dialogue.
What version of Thunderbird are you now running? Check under Help->Troubleshooting Information
What security software are you running on that computer?

Thanks for all replies. Well i just checked and there was one more update -- so I installed it and now my sending emails seems to upload instantly. Maybe the problem is fixed.
