View Full Version : Restricting size of emails downloaded

07-02-2002, 05:08 PM
Someone else has mentioned that they can prevent messages larger than a certain size, eg 50kb from being downloaded off the server. I have looked everywhere in OE and IE 5.5 for a setting for this but can't find it.

Anyone know where it is?

Open OE anyou will find the option under:
Tools>>accounts...highlight your account..options>>>advanced and then you will see a check box. :-)

In outlook express click on tools then message rules/mail.
then new rule. now in field 1 choose ' where the message size is more than size'. and in field 2 choose what to do with it ie do not download it all you have to do now is decide on the size of file not to download

in OE, Message>Create Rule from Message>in the first window remove the default tick unless you want to restrict messages from that person to a certain size and place a tick in Where the Message Size is More than>in the second window tick, Do Not Download from Server>the third window will prompt you for size, enter the info, click ok and apply.

So that's where it is. Yup, thanks very much guys, got that one sorted.

Tazzie, you were a little off the mark there - the only checkbox I have in the Advanced options is to break apart messages over a certain size which is where I kept looking to do what I wanted. Thanks for trying though!
