    I just set up my Mac Mail. But it is transferring over 3000 of my old messages, that I don't really want to have. How can I just begin getting new emails, without having to receive all of the old ones? Is that possible? Can someone tell me how to do this?

    Apple Mail doesn't choose which emails to download - that's up to the server. Who's your email provider? Are you using POP or IMAP?
