Hi
I use different mail server such as gmail, yahoo, Hotmail,... I decided to use outlook to check all my email on my computer. I setup up them. But my problem is that I don't want outlook download all my old email. for example I want to download the last 30 messages. When I set up my yahoo account I see that outlook is going to download 4GB messages. Is there any way to set it up?

thanks in advance

When you use POP3, Outlook will download all messages in the Inbox - if you move them to a different folder online, outlook won't download them. If you use imap, it will sync all folders that you subscribe to - plus you can set outlook to only sync the last 30 days. Unfortunately, this is not an option with POP3. Sorry.
