it doesn't need to download all header information, it only needs to download the information needed to display the screen

so not all information and not all headers.

it normally needs to download sender, date received, message size and subject for somewhere between 30 and 60 messages.

this is a far cry from downloading all header information for a folder with 10's of thousands of messages in it.

this does assume that you are using a decent IMAP mail server that can support things like server-side sorts, etc.
