In order to index emails we need to download them, there's no way around that 
(how else would you get the content in order to index it? :-))

If your usecase is doing a full-text search even in emails that are not 
locally available, there is a possible solution for that. There is a feature 
in Akonadi which is able to use the IMAP SEARCH command to let the IMAP server 
perform the search and only give us back a list of matching results. That is 
however disabled for various reasons, but maybe we could add a checkbox to the 
"Quick Search" to enable it and allow full-text search in a specific folder 
even if the bodies are not available locally. Would not work for the "Search" 
dialog though. If that's what you are after, would you care to open a feature 
request for that on bugs.kde.org?
