Outlook 2019 - I only want it to pull the inbox from Godaddy, not everything

Subject says it.  I only want Outlook 2019 on new computer to pull what is in my godaddy inbox, nothing else.  I have a ton of archive subfolders on my godaddy webmail that outlook 2019 started to download which will explode my new computer no doubt.

You have 2 options

1) Setup POP and configure to leave on the server - this only pulls in your inbox

2) Setup IMAP and do not Subscribe to the additional folders

 

A modern computer / Outlook 2019 really should have no issue with Large Mail accounts

I found an article that talks about number of items per folder - and while this is in regards to Exchange - it is for Outlook 2019

 

It says 100,000 items per folder and 500 folders total
