Emails download only in small batches

My email is only downloading in small chunks: 5 to 10 messages at a time when I hit Send & Receive. It will say that the download is complete, but then if I hit Send & Receive again I get more messages, and so on, and so on. Previously, if I hit Send & Receive, all messages since the last time would come in. After this was going on for a couple of weeks, I upgraded to the latest version of EMClient, but the situation hasn't changed. The online source is gmail. I use POP because I like to control when I send and receive and I manage my email on my computer differently than I do online -- so although I want ALL messages to download, I don't want a live sync, of that makes sense.

Question - Why wouldn't you want a live imap sync of all your mail ? Most peeps these days want realtime emails to all devices. Also pop settings by default removes mail from the server unless you have modified the account settings.

That's just the work flow I'm used to and that I prefer -- sometimes it's nice not to be interrupted by incoming messages or to have a moment to make sure a message is good to go before sending it into the ether. I use eMclient on a laptop only and do not want a live sync. Those settings are fine (and I do keep the mail on the server).
