Hello,

Please check the email account settings and verify all these settings are present for an imap connection to connect to Homesteads server and sync those emails.  https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/email-client-settings

does this mean that a POP setup won't load the sent emalls?

For pop connections, the incoming port can either be 995 or 110 and 465 or 587 for outgoing.

Now, I had an email come in to Homestead with various attachments (pdf, word, excel), but Thunderbird showed a single .dat file of similar size. I forwarded the email through Thunderbird to another Homestead account and I could see all of the attachments in Homestead. Your thoughts?

There may be security settings or email setting limiting the types of files displayed in Thunderbird.

I have been using my mobile phone to send/receive email, two months ago + -, my enail capabilities quit working, reviewing the "reason" displayed a message "certificate expiration" by homestead....now I have been forced into using my PC to send and receive.....the outgoing email set up instructions, DO NOT WORK in outlook, the issue is on this "roundcube or homesteads end !!!!~!

I apologize, I tested a few accounts in Roundcube, which is the email client Homestead provides and is functioning properly and has no reported issues. If you do not wish to utilize Roundcube and are connecting to a third party email client, make sure all settings are enter correctly.  https://community.homestead.com/homestead/topics/email-client-settings I would recommend removing the account and re-adding it, if there are still errors on the phone.

my setting appear to be correct. What could be causing repeated loading of my inbox in Thunderbird? I now have 4 copies of every email in my inbox and it won't stop.

Unfortunately, I would not be able to diagnose why Thunderbird mail would pull in multiple copies of emails. There may be some settings in that account that continuously sync or pulls these in. I would have to recommend reaching out to their support. https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1153753
