I just upgraded to OSX Yosemite and thought of switching over to the default Apple Mail application from Sparrow, the mail app that I absolutely love. After configuring my Gmail account in Apple Mail, I found that the app started downloading all the email from Gmail servers offline. Since my Gmail already has Gigabytes of data, I'd prefer to download only the mail headers first and download only the mail that I explicitly click on. But there seems to be no option to download only the mail that I select! Too bad that Apple mail does not provide me with this simple facility! But if I'm looking at all wrong locations, please let me know. @Peep898 - Do you have a clue?
