The mail server "is" my hard drive, just on a different, central, box
for the house.  IMAP/thunderbird has a cache setting, so anything within
the last 30 days will be retained on each client - for older items or
newly arrived mail, the server must be accessed.

Regardless - glad that you found a workable solution.
