Don’t download Messages – Outlook

Posted on


I’m setting up MS Outlook.
I want to start with a blank inbox in my Outlook. I mean I don’t want old (last day, week, month) mails to be downloaded from the server. More detailed: let’s say I’m setting up Outlook 2010 now, June 28. On the very first start Outlook will start downloading older mails from the server (June 27, 26, April 3, 1 and so on).

What I want is to have emails starting only from today, June 28th.

How should I do that in MS Outlook 2010?



To the best of my knowledge, there is no setting in Outlook to do that. You could download it all, then set your archive setting to remove everything after a certain date to the archive.pst file.
