MS Outlook 2007 IMAP issue
Posted on 2011-03-11
I am using Microsoft Outlook 2007 to connect to my Surgemail email account via IMAP connection.
I have noticed that when I select an email in the Sent Items folder (on the email server), it seems that Outlook will download that email right away, including the attachments. I have not even opened the mail at this point, just highlighted it. So if I select an email with a large size, the application will freeze, while downloading the email in the background (I checked using Windows Task Manager that my pc is indeed downloading a file at that time).
But this does not happen with my other IMAP folders. Outlook will not download the email and all its attachments unless I open the mail and download the files. I find that this issue only happens on my Sent Items folder.
Kindly help me how I can prevent Outlook from automatically downloading email attachments when selecting them from the Sent Items folder.
Thank you in advance.
