    Default Vista, Yahoo, and Windows Mail

    Hi,

    When I click on a mail link in a page Windows Mail starts.

    I have Windows Mail linked to yahoo Mail.

    Every time I want to send a message using Windows Mail, then it starts downloading the Yahoo Inbox contents.

    Can I prevent Windows Mail downloading Yahoo Mail?

    Thanks

    Ps. When WM downloads yahoo's Mail do I see a mirror in Windows Mail, or are the messages actually downloaded. I wondering about my disk space.

    Usually, just the headers/subjects are downloaded and the complete message is downloaded when opening the email. You can select it to not synchronize the folders and only use it to send - Windows Mail IMAP accounts: frequently asked questions

    Thanks for responding.

    I followed the link that you gave, but I could not locate the Settings button! I would like the last option.

    '4.Click Settings, and then do one of the following:

    To download all messages, click All Messages.


    To download only new messages, click New Messages Only.


    To download only headers, click Headers Only.


    To download no messages, click Don't Synchronize.'
