How to stop Windows Live Mail from downloading old emails

If you need a video, go here to start on a 60 second video from as low as £1995. We’ll be going back to our normal prices and may no longer offer these special rates in 2017. If you want to discuss your video, go here to email and ask to schedule a phone call with me. As of now, we are available Mon to Fri and Saturdays. But to lock in the low prices, you’ll have to pay your 50% deposit at start of production.

This has been tested in Windows Live Mail 2012 today. It’s not ideal because you have to do it for every folder, however it seems to be the only way and it works.
It is really annoying that all emails are otherwise downloaded, that with thousands of emails has taken me a full 12-24 hours easily!

From your windows live mail client:

  1. right click the folder you want to synchronize (ie., inbox, etc)
  2. click properties
  3. click “synchronize” tab
  4. check “when synchronizing this folder, download”
  5. select “new messages” instead of “all messages”
