    Hi:

    I'm sure there's an easy fix for this, I just don't know much about Outlook. I just set up my gmail account in Outlook 2007, and when I hit "Send/Receive", it started to download absolutely every e-mail I've ever gotten. I really don't want that... I'd like it to only download messages from today forward. How do I stop it from downloading everything? Thanks in advance! :D

    That's in your gmail settings. Under Forwarding and POP/IMAP change the POP settings to:

    Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on

    So, should that take a while to take effect? I'd tried that, but then sent some test messages to myself and suddenly I wasn't receiving anything in my Outlook inbox.

    I must have skipped over something somewhere along the way haha, not sure where though! It's all working now, thank you. :)
