    New Email Account Reads All Old Mail From Every Folder, Want Only Inbox Mail

    I create a POP3 email account. It is set for only reading primary folder. Synchronization is off because I only want to read new mails from the Inbox to my phone at my request. It then starts reading all emails in every folder (32.000 because I keep all my emails). But it's not consistent. Suddenly it stops. Prodding it to read a batch more a few time sets it off for reading maybe 1-200 mails more.

    I also tried to set it to synchronize but the reading is still erratic in numbers and folders read ... and I don't get the newest emails from my Inbox. I can't make heads or tails of the synchronization behaviour.

    The goal is: I want it to read only the set amount of new emails and only from the Inbox.

    Anybody knows how to tame the beast?

    Phone: Samsung Galaxy S3
    Email: netaddres.com connecting to pop3.postoffice.net port 110 and smtp.postoffice.net port 587
    App: tried both the Galaxy generic app and K9, same result

    I had exactly the same problem on my old phone, HTC Desire using K9.
