Original Title: 'IMAP woes. I have 4 accounts set up on gmail. 3 are showing the gmail imap folders. And the 4th (which had duplicate gmail hierarchy - so I deleted) will not show the imap folders. I deleted another of my original 4, reset it up and it works fine now.
To have your Outlook accessing Gmail via IMAP/POP, you need to enable secure connection (SSL) in your email client. The default non secure Well, IMAP access enables your mail box to be synced automatically and it is up to date at all times, unlike POP where you have to click on the ‘Update’ button. This online utility generates IMAP configuration for Outlook and Outlook Express to use it with GMail. Simply fill your Gmail address (and optional password and display name) and this online tool generates complette configuration settings for Outlook Express.
But the 4th one just won't download the imap 'folders' (really labels at gmail). I went on to the web access and created a label 'receipts' and when OL2011 synced it shows it as a folder. I 'moved'(labelled) a test message to receipts and that did synchronize. What's missing is the complete hierarchy of 'folders' below the main Gmail folder - particularly 'All Mail' (which I use to search for stuff). When I go to advanced account settings and test choose where to put say sent messages it gives options of folders but at the bottom of the list is gmail which will not open up to reveal the folder hierarchy. This is so odd!
I've rebuilt the data sucessfully - main identity. I just don't get this. Can anyone help? Thanks, Brenda -------------Problems Reply------------ In your browser access your Gmail account. Click on Settings > Labels, Check to show All Mail. You should see a box to show in IMAP. Any folder you want to show should be checked.
I just search on old mail in my browser. The All Mail folder is too much of a drag to download for me. Open your Gmail account: Click on the Advanced tab.
It was written for Entourage but the setup is the same for Outlook. For example, the label you created named 'receipts' should have been named [Gmail]/receipts Connect Entourage 2004 to Gmail’s IMAP service Create Gmail labels and make Entourage folders It's not recommended to sync to the All Mail folder. If you have thousands of messages in this folder, Outlook will be very slow. GMAIL'S RECOMMENDED IMAP CLIENT SETTINGS Sending: Do NOT save sent messages on the server. If your client is sending mail through Gmail's SMTP2 server, your sent messages will be automatically copied to the [Gmail]/Sent Mail folder.
DO save draft messages on the server. If you want your drafts in your mail client to sync correctly with Gmail's web interface, set your client to save drafts to the [Gmail]/Drafts folder.
Deleting: Do NOT save deleted messages on the server. Messages that are deleted from an IMAP folder (except for those in [Gmail]/Spam or [Gmail]/Trash) only have that label removed and still exist in All Mail. Hence, your client doesn't need to store an extra copy of a deleted message. Do NOT save deleted messages to your [Gmail]/Trash folder because this will delete a message in all folders. Do NOT save deleted messages to your [Gmail]/All Mail folder as some clients will try to empty this folder and ultimately fail.
