Question about Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition
For each folder in my Live Mail (inbox, deleted, junk, etc.) I want to select synchronization with the Hotmail.com web site, such as "download all messages", "download headers only," etc. When I select "download headers only," Live Mail will always automatically revert to "download all messages." I can't maintain my desired selection of "download headers only." I do not want junk messages downloaded to my computer.
How can I select "download headers only" in a permanent manner?
If you are using Version 2009 (Build 14.0.8064.0206), you should be able to right-click on the folder in the folder pane, select 'Synchronization settings', and select either 'All messages' or 'Headers only' from the list for every folder you wish to modify. Once all of them have been modified to your liking, close Live Mail and reopen it. Your settings should have been saved and should not have reverted to 'All messages.' I have found that if you do not restart the program, it sometimes ignores configuration changes. If you are still using Version 2008 (Build 12.x.xxxx.xxxx), I would recommend visiting http://home.live.com to upgrade to the latest version first.
