HOw to get outlook 2016 to download emails from comcast server and not synch

I can not find a setting in 2016 to download the email instead of synching with the comcast mail server.  I have done this in the past with outlook 2010 and 2013 under the advanced tab and not clicking the leave on server setting.  I wnat outlook 2016 to download the email from the comcast server when I click send/recieve in outlook 2016.

Is Outlook set up as POP or IMAP?

 

If IMAP, it is all synched.

 

POP will do what you want.
