Mozilla Thunderbird

I’m trying out Mozilla Thunderbird because I like how I can use it with my Gmail account. But, it’s doing this annoying thing of downloading all my previous, I’m guessing my archived, emails from my Gmail account. I hope I don’t regret doing this. If anyone has used or is currently using Mozilla Thunderbird, I’d like to know what you think about it.

Update: Thanks to everyone who left comments. I learned a lot, like how to stop all the annoying archived email data dump into my new Thunderbird account, which I’m really liking by the way. Mike Wilson mentioned that he used Thunderbird for his several Gmail accounts, and since I had a need for another, I created it and am now sending emails from both of my Gmail accounts to Thunderbird. That is very convenient, indeed.
