I am looking to limit the amount of downloaded data to save on data charges. Where I currently am, we do not enjoy the cheap data rates as in the US.

Question: Does the filter option in Versamail limit the amount of downloaded data (and hence save on data charges)? Or does it simply retrieve all messages, move the desired ones into the specified folders, then trash (and empty) the rest?

Cos what I noticed is that Versamail will poll all messages on the server (the VM notification popup says "retrieving") and only the desired ones will appear. Does this mean I didn't waste any bandwidth on the filtered-out messages?
