I have recently configured my online outlook account with my gmail id. All my configuration were done. But after configuration outlook is downloading all my previous mails. I want to stop the unnecesary download of old mails. I want to configure it such that it should only download/sync today's mail only.
If you want to retain mail on the server, make sure that you don't have the "delete mail on server when I delete it here" selected, and just delete the mail from outlook's inbox once it's done syncing.
