I'd like Outlook to download messages from the last 10 days only. I don't want to download my whole Yahoo! inbox into my computer. How can that be accomplished?

    Greetings, msafi !

    Outlook is setup to download unread emails from your POP3 accounts.  But there is nothing natively in Outlook that will allow you to download email via POP3 access from a certain period of time.

    Best wishes!

    Is there a third party plug-in or something that'll let me download based on date?

    I do not know of any Outlook plugin that will do what you want.

    Delete or move the older messages on to a different folder in Yahoo. Leave the messages that you want to download in the inbox. Try and see.

    upul007, I think that'll work. However, it is not the best solution as I have lots and lots of messages. It'll take me a while to move everything into a different folder.
