    Is there a way, using IMAP, to limit Windows Mail to only deal with the most
    recent X messages?

    I have a GMail account with in the region of 24,000 messages but on a day to
    day basis, I'm only really interested in the most recent few hundred.

    Archiving isn't a solution as there are filters involved and an archived
    message with a filter applied is still in that filter, certain filters are up
    to thousands of messages as well.

    A most recent 200 messages option would be fantastic.

    You can define a Custom View to hide messages that were sent more than X #
    of days ago.

    Not seeing them doesn't really reduce the size of the mail file any.

    You asked how "to only deal with the most recent X messages"
    I showed you how, and now you want to add another parameter to the issue.

    Perhaps it wasn't worded perfectly but in my defense Windows Mail hiding
    messages from me is still Windows Mail dealing with messages. I'm not adding
    a parameter, I'm clarifying one.

    Sorry about that.

    server>to recent:username
