You can configure the synchronisation setting for the Outlook account in Thunderbird by right clicking the account and choosing to synchronise only the last x weeks of email.

@yitz , that sounds handy. Do emails older than x get deleted if you set that?

No, as you can see below configuration of deletion of messages is a separate setting. Simply keep that on "Don't delete any messages".

Thanks @yitz , your help is much appreciated.

 

I think that will sort the problem out.

 

Cheers.

Just to clarify how synchronisation works messages older than x days will still appear in the folder but they will not be able to be accessed while offline and require a connection to the server to download upon selection. This should not be an issue with what I assume is an always on broadband connection albeit with data cap.
