Attachments over 5M show on Webmail but not on Outlook client using IMAP

Whenever someone implies there is an attachment that I cannot see using Outlook 2010 client and iMap to GoDaddy mail host, I log into web mail at I see the attachment. Any idea what block attachments greater than 5M from being downloaded to my PC?


Thanks in advance

@mheffler apparently Outlook only download the headers of the emails, and not the full contents and attachments.

Here you have a guide into forcing outlook to download the full contents with IMAP.


Hope it helps!
