thunderbird-3.0b1pre: This message may contain a virus or there is not enough disk space. Skip this message?

I just downloaded thunderbird-3.0b1pre for Linux. Extracted it, started, 
but when it tries to fetch emails from the server (from any account), I 
get the message:

  "This message may contain a virus or there is not enough disk space.
   Skip this message?"

Of course I have enough space on the machine, permissions are in order, 
and this message doesn't contain a virus.

What's wrong?

The same profile works fine with Thunderbird 2.0.0.16.

Indeed, this was it.

How is this AV-thingy supposed to work?
I don't have any antivirus installed, and it's enough if the message is 
one plain text word in subject / body.

IF you have an Anti Virus program installed, AND you have it set to scan 
on downloads, then the setting in preferences allows that program to 
quarantine it.

If you don't have the AV program set to automatically scan, OR you don't 
have an AV program installed/running, then uncheck the setting. Leaving 
it set may result in unpredictable consequences.

Opening message in Thunderbird default message window, with message header
Hi, I need to find a way to open a message in the default Thunderbird message window.

Thunderbird 3.1 / plain text messages / double space at the beginning
After update to 3.1 in all my outgoing plain text mail messages a double space is being inserted in the beginning of the first line. While message is in Drafts it is Ok. After sending in the IMAP "Sent Items", Inbox or mailing list folder the messages has two extra spaces. As I see from company's internal mailing list I am not alone. I see the same double-spaced messages from other people with Thunbderbird 3.1+. Today's update to 3.1.1 has not changed anything. Also I've tried to use Outlook Express with the same mail server and Thunderbird with other ma...

Thunderbird slow to download messages or send message
We now use Thunderbird for our e-mail on three Windows XP systems (with SP2) in our house and all three do the same thing. First of all, when I start up Thunderbird, I cannot download any new messages until I get a pop-up in the lower right-hand corner telling me I have new mail. Then, when I click on "Get Mail", the following happens: I see "Connected to mail.(isp provider).ca..." at the bottom of the window, the system seems to wait for 30-40 seconds, then I see "Connect: Host contacted, sending login information", followed by "Downloading m...
