How to stop Windows Live Mail from downloading old emails

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”
