Hi, recently reinstalled ubuntu 8.10 and thought i'd give evolution mail a go instead of thunderbird. I think its pretty much sorted as far as connecting to hotmail goes, however my account has well over a thousand ancient messages and my internet isn't very fast. So i was wondering if there is any option to only download unread messages from the server like thunderbird has in the webmail plugin?

thanks.

My guess is to move the read messages from the inbox to another directory on your Hotmail account before you download the messages.

Hope that solves it - I'm not a Hotmail user, so maybe there's another way of doing this.
