You activate/deactivate the checking of specific email accounts from the
Owner Info settings. Find the email settings for the Mail V account. Click
over to the advanced settings tab. Select/Deselect the check box Enable
checking for new mail option.

Bad news: First, the mail box that you're connecting to has a lot of mail.
Mail V hasn't yet saved the mailbox info for that account until it has
successfully scanned all the messages. Once it makes it through the
mailbox, Mail V will pickup where it left off. (i.e. Mail V will start it's
downloading at 1486, the next time).

Good news: If you have your filter set to ignore mail older than 2 days,
it's not really downloading the messages. It still has to scan them the
first time before it will start remembering where in the mailbox it has
already scanned.

I've set Mail V using the "Default Location." Set this from the Card
application. Set your 20MB card as default. Next, I've chosen to NOT store
new In/Out items to internal store, from within the In/Out app by selecting
Prefs from the 'i' menu.

Not sure about this one, but I think Woody has correctly suggested a
possible solution. I'd recommend freezing or deleting Enroute. I also
recommend GoFetch running side by side with Mail V. You will like the
extras it provides. Additionally, It is always able to send even when Mail
V gives me a hard time. Which, for sending, is quite often.
