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

Got it! It was the "Apply filters to new messages in Inbox on this

"~/.cache/evolution/mail/XYZ/folders/" directory and restarted
evolution. Now it does not download messages any more.

I would suggest this setting to be turned off by default upon creation

Any other idea?

As Milan said there are some configurations which will require the
messages to be downloaded.  Do you have junk filtering turned on?
filters do you have in place?  Anything that requires Evolution to
