How to Manage Email On-Demand

Email On-Demand allows you to view the emails you add to your database without needing to download every single time you log in, as well as avoids lengthy syncing. You can choose to download all emails after you log in by managing your Email On-Demand settings.

Note: These settings are unique to each Mac. If you use more than one Mac you will need to update the settings for each Mac individually.

Optimized Storage

The contents of Emails added to Daylite are accessible when you view them. All emails added to Daylite will show linked and in your email list at all times. Once you have ‘retrieved’ an email by clicking to download it, the email will be in your offline and accessible at all times.

This optimizes your storage, saving drive space on your hard drive and ensures faster syncing.

Download All Email Contents

Download all email contents if you need to access all your emails at any time, including when offline. Email contents do require additional storage on your drive. This window will indicate the storage required to download all current emails. Adding additional emails requires additional storage.

When the download starts a progress bar on this page will appear, which depending on the size of your database, may not move a lot right away. As long as the progress bar is present all your emails will continue to download. Once the progress bar disappears, the download is complete.

Note: The time to download all emails will vary depending on the total number of emails in your database. You can continue to use Daylite, including adding new emails. Turn on sync in the background to continue downloading even after quitting Daylite.
