How do I limit the size of downloaded emails >>only when I am on dial-up<< in Outlook 2003?

I am using Outlook 2003 SP2.  When I travel i often use dial-up.  I want to be able to limit the size of downloaded emails while I am on dial-up.  I found where I can press Ctrl+Alt+S, Edit, click Inbox and limit the size of downloaded emails.  But this applies to the entire account and is not limited to only when I am on dial-up.  I had the option to limit email size while on dial-up in earlier version of Outlook.  

How do I limit the size of downloaded emails only when I am on dial-up in Outlook 2003?

Greetings, brockmrt !

There is no way to limit the size of emails just for dial-up within Outlook 2003.  You found the way to limit the size.  Use this method when you are using dialup.  Then change it back when you are on LAN or broadband.

Best wishes!
you can tell it to only download headers or headers on messages that reach a size threshold.

Tools > options > Mail Setup tab > Send/Recieve button > choose the account you wish to limit from the left side > choose to only download headers for messages that are a certain size
