Well, once you configure your e-mail account in Outlook, it will sync with the webmail and downloads all the mails from the webmail and that is how Outlook is designed to Work.

Check the link below to download headers for POP3 account.

Note: If there are no e-mails in the webmail if Outlook will not download any mails. You can also uncheck “leave a copy of message on server” so that when you configure e-mail account next time it will not downloads e-mails, but this will also remove all the emails from the server.

Why don't you move all your old emails to a new folder on the webmail? This will avoid all the pain you go through when you reset things
