Hi,

I just installed Outlook in a Mac but it downloads all emails from my hotmail accounts, there are thousands of emails.

Is there an option where I can only select to download new emails? I can this on a PC but I can't seem to find this option on the Mac.

Thank you.
Jose

What you can do?

Do archiving of your old mails.

How?

It is time consuming to do and you need to do archiving in web mail first.
