Downloading Message Headers

When you’re in online mode, Windows Mail offers the following methods for downloading a newsgroup’s message headers (this known as synchronizing the headers):

  • Click the newsgroup in the Folders list— Windows Mail will download the headers for you automatically. For busy groups, the default download limit of 300 might not grab every header. To get more headers, select Tools, Get Next 300 Headers. (As you’ll see later, you can adjust this header limit to your liking.)

  • Click the newsgroup and then select the Tools, Synchronize Newsgroup command— In the Synchronize Newsgroup dialog box, activate the Get the Following Items check box, activate the Headers Only option, and then click OK.

  • To synchronize all the newsgroups at once, select the news server in the Local Folders list— Select all the groups, right-click any selected group, click Synchronization Settings, and then click Headers Only. Now select Tools, Synchronize All. Windows Mail downloads all the available headers for the newsgroups.
