I recently downloaded and tried the Mozilla email program in version 1.7.2 and was disappointed to find that I could not select emails on the server for downloading or deleting. Options can be set so that files over a certain size are not downloaded, but this is not sufficient for my use. I would like to view the emails on the server and be able to select which ones I want to download and which ones I want to delete. Please refer to the program: Pegasus Mail V4.11 This product has a "Selective Mail Download" option. This allows me to see what emails are on the server, who sent them, and the size. I can then select which emails I want to get and which ones will be deleted prior to starting a transfer. I find this a valuable feature for my modem connection. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. 2. 3.
In Edit->Mail and Newsgroups Account settings->Server settings you can choose to "Fetch headers only". You can then treat the messages as you wish. There are also context menus in the thread pane, to get "flagged" or "selected messages". That was all fixed in bug 185184, of which bug 240161 was resolved as a dup. Which makes this one a dup as well. *** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 185184 ***

The "Fetch headers only" does not appear under the menu selection: Edit->Mail and Newsgroups Account settings->Server settings It does not appear under the server settings for my account or for the server settings for news.mozilla.org.
