I am receiving a msg on the bottom of the email main screen:

Myemailaddress: Downloading message xx of xxx in important...

What did I do and how can I stop it? It is a gmail account and I don't need all the emails locally.

Even with a folders Synchronization and Storage setting disabled you have to receive the message headers.

I set it so that when I check my Newegg and Bugzilla folders the message bodies are not downloaded to my machine.

You can right-click on the folder, select Properties, select Synchronization, and remove the check mark for Select this folder for offline use.

Thank you, Walt. I managed to get it stopped which was my concern.

I have corrected this setting a couple times. Does this setting get reset when you do an update?

I haven't noticed, but after checking my latest beta on Linux it hasn't changed for me.

Not sure about on Windows 10.

Thanks, Walt. I'll watch to verify next time and post back if I learn anything useful.
