I've entered my hotmail address and it wants to download 16000+ emails.

Apparently when I deleted them originally on my previous mac they didn't delete from hotmail.

Ive left my mac on for about 16hours over night hoping they would be downloaded and i could deleate them in the morining but no such luck.

It just keeps telling me theres more to down load.

ANY help would be GREATLY appreciated

    Log into hotmail via their web interface (presuming they have one), and delete the messages there.

     

    Then rebuild the mailbox (Mail.app Mailbox > Rebuild) within OS X Mail.app client, and see if things clear up.
