MS Outlook for the Mac - Limit of emails to download from Hotmail account

jose11au asked
Last Modified: 2017-03-31

I installed Microsoft Outlook for Mac on my MacBook Pro but when I add my hotmail account it actually downloads all the emails from my Hotmail account. There are hundreds of emails that I do not need to download.

How can I download Hotmail emails for 3 days only on MS Outlook for the Mac?
I deleted the Hotmail account from MS Outlook for the Mac. Do I need to clean up (delete) any folders that may have any of the hundreds of my Hotmail account that were downloaded?

Many Thanks.
