I connect to the internet using 4G. I have set the connection to "metered" in Windows 10.
Unfortunately this means Outlook displays a "metered network" warning and will not download mail until I click "Connect anyway".
This setting appears to be per account so I have to click this for each account before Outlook can download mail. Outlook also appears to silently forget the setting periodically.
I can't find any way to turn this off in Outlook.
I have found two other superuser questions Settings that reduce Outlook 2016 data usage on a metered connection, while allowing mail and Outlook 2013 shows a metered connection warning on Windows 7; causes Office updates to fail but these relate to Windows 7 and 8 and don't appear to have been resolved.
To be clear, I would like Windows to consider my connection as "metered" but I would like Outlook to treat it as "unmetered". I do not want to stop using Windows 10 or Outlook.
Appreciate any and all ideas, even if it means writing VBA! Thanks
