Re: [Evolution] How can I limit the amount of cache evolution is using?

Hi Pete, Tom,

Thanks for your responses.
The "Synchronize remote mail locally" option is not enabled.
It's an IMAP account, with gigabytes of emails. But I don't want
evolution to download all of that locally.

Any other idea?

Thanks a lot in advance for any help.

Best regards

Evolution only caches data when you access it - it shouldn't just
download lots of things when you first create the account.

If it's downloading data itself, then check you haven't enabled
"Synchronize remote mail locally" in the Receiving Options of the
account preferences.
.... and the standard question: What kind of account ?
