Logoff inTB

I have this IMAP setup to check new mail every 1 minute. Before first check I'm asked for password, then mails arch checked automatically.

Can I stop this checking?
Can I  make TB to forget entered password and close all current IMAP connections?
Can I do that for one account only? (So the other accounts will still check new mails)

Of course I want do that without restarting TB...

Greetings ravenpl !

In TB, go to Tools > Account Settings. Under your account, highlight Sever Settings. Uncheck the options check at startup and check every x minutes.

To remove the password, go to Tools > Options > Privacy > Passwords > Edit Saved Password.  Delete the password that you do not want saved.  You can do that for one account.

Best wishes, war1

Maybe I was unclear in my question. What i need follows

I have TB with many imap accounts configured.
All have new messages auto checking enabled.
When I start TB, I'm asked for passwords, then auto-checking works fine.
When I go sleep or shopping, I want to leave the TB running (no application close), but logoff from one account.
What's importand, i want TB to close all imap connections cached for that account.

Just checked, unchecking those will not close imap connections.

So you do not select to remember the passwords when you type them into Thunderbird.

You can uncheck the options that I posted above for the one account. Then that account will not longer check for emails at periodic intervals.

I never did. I'm asked for pass again upon restart.

But the connection(s) stays alive. I want TB to logoff from IMAP server.

Then you need to restart TB to disconnect the one IMAP account.

ravenpl,

You won't be able to leave 4 of the 5  (or any number) active while leaving 1 or 2 (any number) inactive.

Do you wish the IMAP account to not show it's Inbox when you walk away from your computer? If yes, then you have to close TB.

Here's a couple ideas.
#1 In TB, You could check out File->Offline->Work Offline.

See if that does what you want, but I don't believe it will.

#2. Set up Multiple Profiles within TB. One to handle all the public emails that you have no problem letting others see.  And one for your Private collection.

then you could have shortcuts on your desktop to open whatever Profile you nedeed.

One more idea, How about using a second email client to access that private IMAP collection?  You could set up Eudora, or Outlook Express just for that one and that way you could have both sets of emails being checked simultaneously.

OK. You can't do it is an answer as well. Not the one I expected though.
Is there any place I can drop such request for TB developers?
