So, I am a first-time mac user. Just got my first one last week. Anyways... I started using the apple mail program. I added my gmail account and it began by retriving about 1500 emails from gmail. Then if began retreiving emails about 50 at a time, then 25, then 10, and now it's downloading 1 email at a time. Right now i'm at 11,000 emails, and i still have one year until all emails are downloaded (meaning the emails have downloaded up until 1/1/08). why is it not downloading all my emails at once? why has it slowly downloaded less and less emails? can i increase the amount of emails it downloads? Thanks for the help!
