Email foul-up

The last couple of days Comcast has been downloading emails that had already been downloaded before.  Now I am getting duplicates of a bunch of junk I had already gotten rid of from my local inbox.    The first time this happened, a day or two ago, several hundred were downloaded.  What's going on?


I'm using Thunderbird email on my home computer.  My wife accesses the same email address, so we keep the messages on the server for a few days to make sure both of us has a chance to see them.  But I sure don't want them to be downloaded every time I check my email.
