I don't understand the problem. You are going to eventually have to pay
to download all 300 e-mails so what difference does it make if you
download them now or later?

He might not have time to download them all in one go?

I think he wants to know why clicking cancel won't delete the messages
he has already got from the server and leave the rest to be collected

Probably because Evolution is interpreting "Cancel" as "stop all
communication with the server".

A better question might be: Why isn't Evolution updating its local "last
message seen on that server" setting when a user cancels?

There may be a good answer for that, too (i.e. it's safer to download
duplicates than to risk not downloading the messages at all, later).
