Issues in option "Download for offline use"

I am using a Imap account and enabled the option “Download for offline use”, em client keeps on downloading all the mails whenever i close and open the client application.

should it not download only the mails which it has not downloaded.

Hi Karna, not completely sure what you’re referring to. eM client by default only downloads the headers of emails and the “download messages for offline use” allows you to have all your messages that are available on the server, available for offline use e.g. has to download the body of the message.

After you enable this option, the applications starts to download the data from the server, which may take some time, after the initial synchronization is done, all your newly received messages will be downloaded for offline use as well.

Hope this helps,
