Should i download all messages?

Hi all,

New to Emclient and absolutely a keeper!

1 Question is that i can download all messages. Should i do that or not?
Most of the time i am online but i prefer to search and open my mail quickly. Do i need to download all emails (6GB) or just forget this option?

Do you mean “Download messages for offline use” in IMAP accounts ?

If you do, then that option makes emails faster to read, as you are not always reading the mail headers remotely and waiting for the email to read.

However if you don’t enable that option, once all the mail headers and body of emails are read & cached locally, then they are still pretty quick to read anyway.

Note:- I personally “don’t use that option” and the email reading is nearly instantaneous anyway.
