I hope somebody can help me. How do I stop Outlook 2010 from downloading my email to my PC when using IMAP settings? Thunderbird just downloads the headers. I do not want to store the email on my PC.

Hi,

Instead of initially downloading only message headers, in Outlook 2010, full messages are downloaded by default. This enables you to work with all of your mail items, even when a connection to the mail server isn"t available. For performance reasons, headers are downloaded immediately, and full messages are downloaded every 30 minutes.

You can also check the options to download headers only:

===========

1. With Outlook open, click on the Send/Receive Tab

2. Click on the arrow next to Send/Receive Groups in the Send and Receive Group

3. Click on Define Send/Receive Groups from the menu.

4. When the Send/Receive Groups dialog box appears, click on the Edit button.

5. Click on the account you wish to edit, in my case I only have one account so only one is listed. If you have multiple accounts you have to modify each individually.

6. Click on Use the custom behavior defined below.

7. Choose the folders you wish to apply this setting to

Note: Each folder needs to be selected individually when choosing the setting in Step #8, if the folder selected is the parent folder, for example All Mail, then the other folders need not be modified.

8. Click on Download complete item including attachments (this will tell Outlook to download all emails with content and attachments).

9. Click OK to proceed.

Best Regards,

Sally Tang
