I love the way my Yahoo Plus mail account syncs with my iPad's Mail program...it all syncs so smoothly.
In trying to set up my Macbook's Mail program to do the same thing, I realized I need to change it to IMAP. When I did so, it started to download all 15,000 old messages that I have on the Yahoo servers. Is there any way to only download the newer messages, or do I have to face the music and clean up my Yahoo account?
