Hi

I am using the default mail app on my macbook and I was wondering if there is a way to limit the amount that its syncs with the server?

For example on my phone, the app syncs all my mail from all 4 of my accounts from the last 3 days. Is there a way I could do a similar thing on the mail app?

At the moment I've got 5000+ e-mails and it can get a bit laggy

Btw, Im using Outlook (main account), ME, Gmail and iCloud. (if that information is required lol)

Please help!

What do you mean by that? iCloud is a completely separate thing to email, not an alternative. :lol:

OP - I don't think you can limit the amount of email, it's designed to download your entire inbox. However once it's downloaded that shouldn't affect the performance of the app, I've got over 14k emails in my inbox and Mail is coping fine.

I use the iCloud webmail rather than a mail app - sorry if that was not clear
