Do you have Thunderbird configured correctly to access your account? IE, is it configured correctly for you POP3 server?

Are you sure the e-mail is not deleted? Most e-mail reading programs by default delete the e-mail after downloading it from the server. That is to ensure that the mailbox does not breach the quota. If you have a way to login to the server via webmail, see if there is anything in the inbox.
Otherwise, thunderbird should download everything from the inbox, at least it did that for me.
