I'm trying the Window Live Mail client. Simple and beautiful. However I'm used to an IMAP client that only downloads headers. Windows Live Mail automatically creates a list of tasks to download all messages from all directories when closing the client. Is it possible to avoid this?
It's good because I can work offline and have a backup, but it takes extremely long to perform. With a hundred thousand emails, this task can take a whole day to perform. What should I look for in the settings?
