I want to add an IMAP-account to Mail. Since I've used this account for many years, it contains thousands of emails and archive folders, and I really don't want to fill up my SSD with that.
I couldn't find a way to limit synchronization to a certain time frame or specific folders (I guess that's not really the concept of IMAP).
I found out that there used to be a "Don't keep copies of any messages" checkbox in Mail's preferences, so emails would not be stored locally. I would be completely satisfied with this solution, however, in Mail 7.0 this option was removed (which I don't understand, seems like such a basic function to me).
Does anybody have a solution for this?
Suggestions for alternative software are welcome as well (in case there's really no way to use Apple Mail without downloading my entire mail history).
