Hi,

I wanted to know if I can set my Mail config so that when I create an account over it, it should only sync my mail from the same day instead of downloading each and every mail from my mail box?

Thanks

Isn't possible with Mail (or any other that I can think of).
You either use POP or IMAP and both will download all messages, Mail doesn't have the option to download "from today onwards" option

On POP accounts, Mail should only download new messages, not ones that it has previously downloaded. You should set mail to delete the messages from the server once it has downloaded them though...

Yes. That way when Mail downloads a message it is removed from the server all together. You will only get new e-mails.
