Are you sure you need to download your mail? I use only web mail and some
of my messages on shaw are several years old. (I must clean house
sometime!) Even better, my wife and each have gmail accounts which we use
most of the time and we never download. Right now I have 401MB on their
server which is 5% of my quota.
