    Thanks but, no, that setting only changes how much stuff is downloaded. Where's the setting that allows you to download your mail to your local disk?

    Assuming you are using the Windows 8 Mail App, + C and then select settings then accounts. You can then decide how much is downloaded to your disk. If you select "Anytime" you will get the lot.
