Windows Live Mail downloading ALL my old e-mails, unnecessarily

I just got Windows Live Mail with an upgrade to MSN messenger... It looks good.
But what I can't understand is why it is downloading all my old e-mails in my hotmail account - there are thousands of them, and I really don't need them on my PC... I thought the world was moving towards internet-only applications. So, this seems like a backward step to me As nice as Windows Live Mail looks (and it is nicer than hotmail), I can't see the value in having every e-mail I ever sent or received through Hotmail sitting on my PC...
Is this not an option I can switch off?

Also, does anyone know where Microsoft stores all those e-mails on my PC, so I can delete them?
Hoping someone has some advice!
Many thanks!
