 Set myNamespace = Application.GetNamespace("MAPI") 
 Set mpfInbox = myNamespace.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderInbox) 
 ctr = mpfInbox.Items.count 
 If (myNamespace.ExchangeConnectionMode = olConnectedHeaders) Then 
 For i = 1 To ctr 
 Set obj = mpfInbox.Items.Item(i) 
 If (obj.Importance <> olImportanceHigh And obj.DownloadState = olHeaderOnly) Then 
 obj.MarkForDownload = olMarkedForDownload 
 End If
