Outlook 2013 not 'seeding' IMAP account

Question: Outlook 2013 not 'seeding' IMAP account

Hi everyone,
I'm having a strange problem with my IMAP account in outlook 2013. My account does not download my mails after I open the program. I need to go to the send/receive tab and click the  'update folders' button.
 
I've tried deleting and re-installing the imap account. It also does not fetch the mails when I use the F9 button.
I'm using Win7 (64bit) and Office 2013 Professional Plus (32bit), both office and Windows are up to date according to windows update.
 
Help would be very much appreciated.
 
Cheers

Hi guys

We're migrating a user from IMAP to POP. She's using Outlook 2013 and has lots of autocomplete entries. There's no suggested contacts folder and no .nk2 files. Any idea where they're stored?

Thanks

Dear all,

I configured my Outlook 2013 as below:
I created a profile with 2 accounts: one is Exchange mode account, the other is IMAP mode account.
Now I set the Exchange mode account data to E:\email. But the data of IMAP account if in C drive, I want to change it to E:\email too.
How do I change it?
Thank you in advance.

When I loaded Office 2013, and then the first email address, it automatically created an imap account. Which I can't seem to delete. Would rather not have this connected to remote.

Is there a way to create the first account as a pop? Was there an option for doing manually?

I'm wondering if I can uninstall it and install it all over again.
 

Answer:Outlook 2013 - imap versus pop

You'll need to set it up again as a new POP3 mailbox and then you can ditch the IMAP one.

Hi there
My main e-mail client is Outlook 2010 with IMAP (I've tried email clients but Outlook for me is still the best and most convenient for handling multiple e-mail accounts including work ones).

I'm thinking of upgrading to Office 2013 -- if I do this has anybody tested the GMAIL integration with Outlook 2013

Works fine with Outlook 2010 on W8 Enterprise edition X-64.

Hi there

Finally got rid of Office 2013 but especially Outlook 2013 off W10 -- back to Outlook 2010 (and Office 2010).

If you use IMAP Outlook 2013 is HOPELESS if you use different SMTP SENDING servers - it's totally NOT USER FRIENDLY to Local folders at all -- moving stuff from IMAP folder to LOCAL folder just LOSES email !!!!!

The whole setup is B/S too -- you have to do the test send -- can't uncheck the box - and if the test is unsuccessful -- the account can't be created -- what a load of "Bovine Scatology".

Bad one Ms -- also the themes are Horrible too unless you walk around all day wearing a pair of Ray Ban "Shades".

Folks,

I am in the midst of migrating a bunch of Google Apps mailboxes to PST using Outlook, however I am encountering problems exporting large (20+ gigs) mailboxes with lots of folders. Specifically, once the export starts, it will fail once the PST reaches about 25 gigs with the message "The operation failed. The messaging interfaces have returned an unknown error. If the problem persists, restart Outlook."

This does not occur on smaller mailboxes with lots of folders... only on the large ones.

Any ideas?

Thanks
 

Answer:Outlook 2013 -> Can't export large IMAP mailboxes to PST

are you using Exchange? Exchange 2007/2003 are limited to 20GB PST and recommends the main folders have less than 20,000 items each.

Hi there
Has anybody managed to get round the problem of bypassing the TEST SEND / RECEIVE e when setting up new EMAIL accounts on OUTLOOK 2013.

If you are AWAY from your home ISP you can't always SEND --a lot of ISP's block SEND mail unless you are actually logged on to their service or use their webmail facility.

With OUTLOOK 2010 you can disable the TEST SEND / RECEIVE email so you can still SET UP the account.

OUTLOOK 2013 fails because the TEST SEND fails and you can't skip the test.

screenshot of outlook 2010 enc

in 2013 this option doesn't exist -- so I've been unable to set up my Home email account until I get home.

Seems to me a STUPID new feature -- often one wants to set up stuff when away from home -- and test it later.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:OUTLOOK 2013 -- cannot configure IMAP / POP3 wen away from home ISP

Jimbo, most SMTP servers won't allow you to use port 25 unless they are your ISP. I use port 587 or 2525
to setup my outlook so that I can send and receive while away.

So i have been doing some research ever since reluctantly upgrading to office 2013. for the most part the process was painless save for a few minor tweaks the old outlook settings and all my data was picked up seamlessly by the new application.
 
my problem is that the new version cannot be set to only download message headers in IMAP and worse yet if you use the slider to limit offline data to 3 months or so there is literally no way i have found to locate older archived messages on the server short of directly logging into gmail or downloading years worth of messages in full just to find a single item.
 
so my main question is this.  would it be possible to write a COM Add-In for Outlook 2013 that forces the old header only behavior or if the feature was completely removed replaces it all together ?

Answer:Getting around outlook 2013's innability to only download headers in IMAP

The ability to download headers only is available in 2013 only with POP and Exchange accounts. http://www.outlook-apps.com/download-headers-only/
 
I'm not aware of any add-ins that will enable this behavior.

Hello,

Here in the UK, Orange turned off their email address system. I have a GMail account and want to use this in Outlook 2007.

However, I have a POP account which receives but does not send. It is for this reason, I use the GMail account from which to send, but then make my Return address to be that of my POP address.

Anyway, GMail is an IMAP account and Outlook tries to send mail from the POP account as opposed to the Defaulted IMAP GMail account.

For Outlook 2010, 2013, etc, there are Registry fixes for this. I cannot for the life of me find a Registry fix for 2007. Does it exist, with instruction?

Many thanks in anticipation.

Win 7, Office 2007 etc etc.
 

Answer:Outlook 2007 - Make IMAP account default sending account

I have moved a few people off of orange over the last few weeks and then closed down the account on outlook 2007 and 2010

If you have the old orange still set as default account - change to the gmail account as default
also switch off the send and receive - not needed for IMAP

otherwise , not sure what you are trying to do

You can also delelte the account and the POP email will remain - BUT backup and test the PST file first

The item cannot be moved. It was either already moved or deleted, access was denied, or the server is unavailable.Click to expand...

I am about to create and delete folders without any errors.

If I try to move a message from Inbox to another folder, I receive the error, then check and see that it is there ... um, but now it's in two places: Inbox and the folder I tried to move it to.

If I try to delete the duplicate message, the cursor changes the the rotating animation for a split second and that's it. Nothing actually happened -- message is still there.

Any ideas?
 

Answer:Outlook 2013 Google Apps IMAP: The item cannot be moved. It was already ...

Google Apps is weird like that. There are no real "folders" per se. It's all just labels and IMAP + Outlook = problems. If you go into the gmail.com is the email under the labeled folder and inbox? It's a clusterfuck to be honest. If you remove the account from Outlook and re-add it, does it still happen? Have them use the web client is the ultimate answer IMHO.

First of all, I don't understand PST very well! And, I hope I am posting in the correct forum.

We use Outlook 2003 with Exchange in Windows 2003 Server environment.
In addition to regular user email accounts, we have a couple IMAP accounts that several employees access and respond to the emails.
The primary user for one of these accounts is now not able to receive any new email for the IMAP account nor move an existing email from that Inbox to a subfolder. When we try to move an email, we get a message: "Can't move the items. The file .pst has reached its maximum size. To reduce the amount of data in this file, select some items that you no longer need, and then permanently delete them by pressing SHIFT+DELETE. You could also consider using the new Outlook Personal Folders file (.pst) introduced with Outlook 2003 that provides greater capacity for storing items and folders." I found an MS KB article that advised, because this is an IMAP account, it has the 2GB limit even thought it's Outlook 2003.

My question: Can I create a secondary PST file for this IMAP account in order to keep the current full PST file? For business reasons, it is important for us to keep the 2 GB of history that is in the current PST file, as well as to continue archiving email for this IMAP account.

I really appreciate any advice/suggestions/comments!
Thank you!
 

Answer:Outlook PST with IMAP Account

Im not sure about the not receiving IMAP emails in the inbox, there might be some mailbox size limit setup in exchange, and they are over it.

But for the moving emails from inbox to the personal folders:

You can have as many personal folders as you want, but has to be way below the 2gb mark. Honestly I would make sure the personal folders are less than 500mb.

Okay, I have had this problem several times and now I want to know what is causing the problem. In outlook you can add certain folder to your favorites so that they appear like short cuts at the top of the navigation window. But from time to time different imap short cuts don't appear and then I have to close and restart to get the short cuts to reappear.

Any ideas as to why?

Answer:Outlook 2010 and IMAP account

Also if you go to the inbox, if that is one in your favorites, and right click it gives you the option to remove from favorites even though it is not displayed. After removing and adding will also show them back at the top. But this is a pain in the back side.

I have an Exchange account and an IMAP account, both of which I access using Outlook. However, when I connect remotely to the network using my RDC connection and open Outlook I have problems.

First, I get a message like "file C:\Docs and Setts\blah\Local Setts\App Data\MS\Outlook\[email protected] could not be found" where [email protected] is the name I have given the IMAP account.

Secondly, I can not send emails at all. They remain stuck in the outbox.

If I remove the IMAP account I can send the emails again.

I have no such problems on my own PC running win2000 Pro and Outlook 2003, connecting to the same Exchange server on the same network.

The remote server is using Windows Server 2000 and Outlook 2003.

Does anyone know of a bug which might cause this problem?

Hi all, again!Does anyone know how in Outlook 97 mail to make an IMAP account the default inbox?At the moment when I open Outlook it opens the default Inbox, which would be fine if it were a POP account.I then have to click on my mail [email protected]...to read my msgs.I've heard that you can't have an IMAP account as the default Inbox, but is there anyway of getting outlook to open my Inbox first?Thanks!

Answer:Outlook default mailbox with IMAP account?

Outlook will create the IMAP inbox separately from the pop inbox. It is a long time since I used Outlook 97 but you should be able to go to Tools - Options - Under Options, select the tab called Other. Under this tab, select the Advanced button. You should be able to browse to change the folder you want Outlook to start up in and that should show the IMAP inbox.

Hello all,

I run most of my daily operations off of my iMac and I run Entourage on my Mac for email.

I have two IMAP accounts that I access on a regular basis. In Entourage, I have an option in the advanced tab for each account that allows me to handle how I want to handle deleting messages from the IMAP server.

It's called "Delete Options" and I have selected "Move messages to the Deleted Items folder" selected.

This is great because I always have my deleted messages stored in this file for future reference. Note: I also have the "Purge Deleted Items" option selected to purge this folder every 180 days.

My problem is I use a PC when on the run and I would like it to handle deleting items the same way as my Mac. Right now, when ever I delete an item in Outlook, it does not go to the Deleted Items folder. It just magically disappears forever. Can someone help me out to get Outlook to act like my Entourage. Thanks.

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.

Cheers
jimbo

Answer:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Is there a way to make outlook delete mail in the sent folder with a imap account? I delete them and they stay, albeit with a strikethrough showing they are marked for deletion. But the only way to delete them so they are gone is go to my webmail page of the account and delete them there.

Answer:delete sent outlook mail imap account w/o doing it in webmail?

IMAP protocol's biggest advantage is also its biggest problem: the folders are and remain synchronized. You can move the sent messages to another folder to keep Sent folder empty, but in doing so both the Sent folders (local and server) will become and show empty.

Simple answer to your question: no, it's not possible. Check your provider if it is possible for you to use POP3 protocol, it would allow you deleting locally and keeping files on server and vice versa.

Hi guys, as I am using both a laptop and tablet to check email I have set up both devices with imap accounts.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

I have a google-hosted account, connected via IMAP to a fully patched Outlook 2007 installation running on a fully patched XP machine (all 32-bit). I have a bunch of labels/folders, with some of them configured to "download headers only", and the others configured to "download complete item with attachments". The main Inbox is in the latter group. Yet when new emails arrive, they don't always fully download. After clicking on those emails, the rest of it downloads, but the computer this is on is not connected via a very quick Internet connection, and it can and does take 20-120 seconds to finally display some emails, and it feels a lot longer than that.

Anyway, this is a new IMAP connection configured with a brand-new (created on Saturday) Outlook profile.

I was using the "Google Apps Sync" utility along with the google account, but I kept getting tons and tons of sync errors, so I had to switch to an IMAP account for email, and I'm trying out a few different options to sync the calendars and contacts. So if someone has a solution for the Google Apps Sync sync errors (unfortunately the errors were all "Generic" errors, so I never could figure out what the problem was - I opened a support ticket with Google support but thus far I haven't heard back from them after sending them the trace and log files they asked for).

Answer:How to change email account settings in outlook from IMAP to POP3?

Use Office Outlook on your desktop as your email app instead of windows 10 Mail-Outlook.com (formerly Hotmail) and select Office's Outlook as your default. The win 10 Mail app is for webmail and home user use. You might need it for your Microsoft webmail Account but use Office Outlook as your mail email program for POP mail. Office Outlook and Outlook.com are unrelated in spite of the recycled name.

This issue just has started. It worked for the 3 years I have owned 20007. I have all the correct boxes checked, I think. The only thing I changed, which coincided with the alerts not working, was added an IMAP account.

Could the adding an IMAP account disable the desktop alert feature?

Thanks

Answer:Outlook 2007: No Desktop Alert on new emails after adding IMAP account

First let me clarify. I don't have Outlook 2007. But I do have 2003 on one of my machines.That said, I don't believe that just adding an IMAP account would have an adverse effect on your alert settings unless you somehow inadvertantly disabled the feature during the setup of the account. Again, I'm working with 2003, but in my main navigation menu, under Tools, I have a category for Rules and Alerts. This includes an interface for setting up the various rules for your email alerts. I'd start there and make sure all of your preferences are still set up correctly.Hope this helps,Bill

I know the server settings are correct because they work on my phone and at my office. This is an Exchange 2010 account.

The exchange server name shows up as a .local which would work if I was on the network at the office.

Answer:Outlook 2013 Cannot add a new account

For starters, there is a certificate error. Is your company using a self-signed certificate? If so, you'll need to import the root certificate from your company's certificate store into the computer you are trying to connect with. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/923575
 
You said you know the server settings are correct, and that the exchange server name ends in .local. That server can only be accessed from computers connected to your company's network. If you are trying to connect from home, you will need to contact your IT department to ensure the Outlook Anywhere service is enabled on the Exchange server. Your phone can connect because it is using a different protocol than what Outlook uses.

Hi there
PLEASE TO ANY DEVELOPERS OF SOFTWARE : Don't dumb the stuff down so much that it's impossible to repair it if it goes wrong.

Outlook 2013 won't set up an email account if the TEST SEND EMAIL fails.

This is a really stupid error on the part of the developers -- if you are in some places often your ISP won't let you logon to your email server to SEND email from programs like OUTLOOK (SPAM protection amongst other things) but insist that you use their webmail unless you are actually LOGGED ON to the ISP.

ISP's have no problem with you READING Email while on say a public / other Wi-Fi system but often restrict the SENDING of emails through their servers from such Wi-Fi accesses - you often have to be logged on to your own ISP.

So if you are trying to set up the account while you are staying in a Hotel and using their broadband service it fails -- all I want is to be able to READ email until I can logon at home.

I can SEND via webmail or mobile phone so the stupid install process shouldn't stop me CREATING an account even if for the moment I can't use it for SENDING.

GRRH! -- Don't the developers EVER speak to the END USERS any more before designing some install rubbish system like this.

Showstopper for me this one

Rolled back to Office 2010 -- Outlook 2010 works fine - you can SKIP the test email send --this is what they should allow on Outlook 2013 as well. !!!!!

Answer:Office 2013 - Outlook cannot configure account

Maybe some "stability updates" will be released. Always the same problems with new software...

Good thing I couldn't upgrade (no free offer or reductions).
The Office 2010 runs super fast on my laptop and (for me) there's no need for another version for the moment.

You need to get that info from your email provider. Does your ISP provide you with an email account? If so, ask then for instructions on how to setup their email with Outlook.

I have just installed Outlook 2013 and started my mail account. Unfortunately I let Outlook configure my email account automatically and it configured as IMAP and not a POP account so I have an OST instead of a pst

what is the best way to delete the account I created and start again this time configuring the servers manually ?
Thanks

Answer:redo outlook 2013 mail account

Personally I would leave the account as it is. An IMAP account have the advantage of leaving copies of e-mail on the server. So in the event of system failure all your e-mails are safe.

Are you able to send/receive e-mail ok?

Hello,

By default, when adding hotmail accounts on Outlook using EAS, the account got added with FULL HOTMAIL NAME:
[email protected]

There was a process by which the left pane of Outlook showed any Name that user wanted.

Now with reconnecting Hotmail account in Outlook (going to Exchange), the same situation of FULL HOTMAIL NAME in the left panel has come up.

The older process (with EAS) does not work.

Any ideas?

Hi I need some advise.

I've been using Outlook 2013 in Win 8 on other partition.

I wanted to backup my old Outlook 2013 account settings and restore them into Outlook2016 because I have 7-8 email accounts. I did the registry backup from outlook /15/profile/outlook .

But in Outlook 2016 the profile registry is located in outlook/16/profile/outlook.

If I click the backed up registry in win10 , the registry installed in wrong directory outlook/15/profile/outlook
That is why my Outlook2016 cannot see the restored accounts.

How can I change or transfer the registry to the original directory outlook/16/profile/outlook?

Please some one if can assist me.

I have two issues, they are somehow related:

1- Am always prompted to enter the account credentials for an Office365 e-mail on MS Outlook.. without even closing and reopening Outlook, am suddenly prompted to enter the credentials, no network disconnection occurs during this time

2- The second problem is that I have to enter the credentials 4 times before it gets connected again! it is similar to what happens when the password is wrong, however, I just check the remember password and click on Ok 4 times and am connected

I just acquired an HP Pavilion 500-C60 desktop computer that came preloaded with Windows 8.1 and Office 2013.  [I once used Windows Vista Business with Office 2003, which worked fine.]
 
I’m now unable to activate Outlook 2013 – i.e. I can’t send or receive e-mail messages per the following: 
 
When receiving - I get “The connection to the server was interrupted.”  Somewhere I heard or read that “imap” should be instead of “pop” (or “pop3”) when using Outlook 2013 in Windows 8.1.
 
When sending - I get “Outlook cannot connect to your outgoing (SMTP) e-mail server.”  BTW, my ISP is comcast.net and I was directed to an online file: - “Configure Outlook 2013 for Comcast E-Mail” (accessed via Google).  Each time I follow this procedure and get to the final step – “Test Account Settings “ - the Test fails - and I can’t finalize my e-mail new account configuration.
 
Has anyone else had this problem – and how did you overcome it?  [BTW, I’m only semi-computer literate in such matters and would appreciate a step-by-step approach to finally get back into “e-mail land.]”

I use Outlook 2013 for four different email accounts - two hotmail. com accounts, one outlook.com account, and one sbcglobal.net POP account provided by AT&T via Yahoo.

Beginning a week or so ago, I've started getting password prompts throughout the day for the sbcglobal.net account. I select the checkbox to save the password, but I keep getting prompted for it. This happens maybe once an hour, sometimes more. It's really annoying.

I know the password I'm supplying is correct because I do get email for the account, and I've verified the password using the ATT/Yahoo web interface.

Any suggestions how to stop the repeated prompts?

Answer:Outlook 2013 repeatedly prompts for email account credentials

Were you able to resolve this problem? I have the same issue with my sbcglobal.net account under Outlook 2016 with my MS Office 365 subscription. Time frame is about the same...for the past five days or so. I have tried repairing my email accounts, manually updating them, and clearing the credential manager of all generic credentials. In credentials, there is the option to "remove" the credentials for the SSO_POP_Device and SSO_POP_User, but I have been reluctant to do so. I shut down Skype, because I found a thread where someone said that seemed to be their conflict. I have not made changes to my passwords lately. The only hinky thing is my installation of Join.me. Once I did that, my home page changed, as did my default search browser, but I chalked that up to me not being careful enough with the install. That said, though, that is about the time I started having this problem.

Any ideas gratefully accepted!

when exporting as a csv file you have to map custom fields first and take the email 1 address and move it into the other side for the addresses to get in there (from left to right) or the email addresses will not go correctly into the computer you want to do it to.

Hi there
Unless you have an ACTIVE Internet connection (or other Network Mail Server connection such as Exchange) you will NOT be able to set up OUTLOOK 2013.

Outlook 2013 requires (and there is no option unlike in Outlook 2010 to disable it by unchecking a box) a TEST email to be sent and working before your account(s) can be configured-- Once it's done you don't have to be online but if you need to set up several accounts and you don't have a working internet connection -- Tough luck.

Why on earth did Ms do this --it's not necessary and it is a Hassle for some people who are on the road, have purchased Office 2013 and want to set it up instead of having to wait until they get home.

Also a hassle if they want to prepare company laptop computers with email parameters in advance of the new Exchange email servers being rolled out to the users.

Even if your work policy has mechanisms where the USER can configure the email connections themselves they won't be able to set it up until the Servers are actually in place so you can't set the accounts up in advance.

The box I've shown here is from Outlook 2010. In Outlook 2013 the option is filled in and greyed out so you can't change it.

BTW I prefer and use Office 2010 myself but was trying to help a colleague to set up Office 2013.

Of course you can uncheck the Test email box. It has been so in all Outlook versions, is still so in Outlook 2013.

The option is grayed out exactly as long as the NEXT button is grayed out i.e. as long as they could not be used due missing credentials, until the setup has all relevant information for an email account to work (email address, incoming and outgoing servers, username and password). When you have filled the needed credentials, both the Test box and NEXT button become visible and can be clicked / selected.

Although I could well understand that setting up an email account, which in any case needs a working connection, would require an existing connection, this is not the case with Outlook 2013. You can set your email accounts up while sitting in a pub in Brussels watching Premier League Football without Internet connection if you want to .

Good Morning All,
 
We currently have our emails hosted by an offsite server, we are using Microsoft Outlook as our email program.  We currently are backing up the .pst file daily and also the entire folder that the .pst file is in.
 
My question is, if the email server goes down and all of the emails on the server are lost, will the .pst file we have backed up still contain all of the emails, or when it send/receives, will it be updated and the messages erased?
 
I want to make sure that the emails are protected in the event of a disaster.
 
Thanks!!
Brent

Answer:Backup IMAP account

That's a question that you need to ask the email provider. Ask them there policy on email storage if a disaster happens. That's something that they can tell you better than us. As far as backing up the email locally using .pst files, to my understanding backups your local mail that you've already received. Most email accounts that are stored on the server are backed up either weekly or monthly and are saved as inbox.saved or something similar, that way they can backup your email if anything happens.
 
You can do a test, and see what happens. Create you an email on the email server, and let it sync to your outlook program. Then delete the email off of the email server, and see what happens on outlook. Does the email go away, or does it stay as a locally cached copy? Doing that will give you an idea of what happens to your mail if it gets deleted, does it stay or does it go...
 
Typically your viewing the emails that are on the server through Outlook UNLESS you move them off the IMAP server to your outlook client, and then they are erased off of the IMAP account and stored locally on the pc for archiving purposes. So essentially if your email ever got erased off of the server, then the email provider would have a backup of your inbox, and could restore your mail.

Hi, my first post on the forum - can someone help?

I can't see how to set up 'Other account POP, IMAP' in the Win 10 mail app - or rather I can see how to set up accounts and either the app is faulty or I must be missing something, because I've tried using the advanced settings as recommended in the Ten Forums tutorial on the mail app (Mail app - Add or Delete Account in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums) but I don't see anywhere to put the actual email address for the account I'm trying to set up.

Likewise if I do it step by step setup from the 'Other account POP, IMAP' link in setup although I can put the email address in this eventually gets overwritten by my username when setup is finished - I have my own domain and my hosts username format is totally different to my email address - e.g. the mail format would be '[email protected]' whilst the username would be in the format 'mydomain.com_someone' - the app appears to assume that mail address and username are going to be the same as when setup is completed the app shows my username as my email address. I've set up an ActiveSync account fine but I'm stumped on setting my personal mailbox up.

I'm probably being stupid, but any help/advice please? Thanks.

I currently use an IMAP account running from my own domain as my primary e-mail. I came across some articles mentioning Gmail as being able to import POP3 accounts. Do Windows Live (Hotmail) or Gmail allow you to do this with an IMAP account?

Basically what I'm looking for is a way to use my IMAP account as webmail across any computer. My current host has a webmail option, but the UI is a disgrace.
 

Answer:IMAP account through GMail or Live?

If your host allows you to run code, you could consider installing your own webmail interface like Horde/IMP or SquirrelMail or something.

I don't think you'll find any of the existing e-mail services supporting IMAP client mode, it's just too difficult to integrate. POP is easy since it's a dumb mailbox that you just poll and throw any messages in the inbox. IMAP is constantly changing and you need to track state to do anything useful with it, which would be a UI nightmare and technically difficult to implement as part of an existing mail service. Maybe there are some web-based IMAP clients out there that are just IMAP clients and let you connect to your own mail servers, but that's rather a niche and I haven't heard of any.

If you want to use the GMail interface you're probably better off just forwarding your mail there and setting up a custom from address, or setting up Apps on your domain.

I have an email account at KPN, which originally was Planet internet.
Currently, on my Windows 7 laptop, using Windows Live Mail 2011, I am able to view it as an IMAP account, using the following server properties:
incoming:
imap.kpnmail.nl, port 993, SSL required
outgoing:
smtp.kpnmail.nl, port 25, SSL required, no verification required
Trying this in Windows 10 Mail, it responds that this is outdated information (in Dutch: "De instellingen voor uw account Planet zijn verouderd.")
The result is, that I am not able to read nor send emails
Instead, the Microsoft Windows 10 Mail program uses per default:
pop.planet.nl:110:0
mail.planet.nl:25:0
which in my opinion is outdated!!!!!!
With those settings I am only able to receive mails (fortunately they are not thrown away at the server's), but also not able to send mails.
How can I to overrule this?
(Maybe it helps if I knew what the :0 at the end means.)

Answer:How to set up for IMAP instead of POP on email account in Windows 10 Mail?

Try and override the default settings...
Right click on your account at the left pane, choose 'account settings', then 'change mailbox sync settings'.
You will then see an 'advanced mailbox settings'. Click on that.
Then at 'incoming email server' try imap.kpnmail.nl:993
'Outgoing (SMTP) email server' try mail.planet.nl:25 (or just mail.planet.nl)
Lastly check or uncheck the 'outgoing server requires authentication', 'require SSL for ...' check boxes according to your description above.
Good luck.
(that said, my own problem with Win10 mail and IMAP is that no matter how I configure the account settings, outgoing emails do NOT have the sender account name (i.e. my email account) shown correctly. What this means is that while others can read the e-mails I send to them, they cannot reply to them unless they manually change the 'reply to' e-mail field)

I use 1and1 for providing several email accounts and hosting a couple of websites. I've never had any problems until a few weeks ago, my wife noticed that there were a significant number of emails she wasn't receiving on one of her POP3 email accounts (loaded on Office for Mac 2011 set up on a Macbook Pro) The same account is set up another machine also as POP3 and the missing emails were not received on that one either. I rang the 1and1 helpline and they took a look and said that there were over 7000 messages sitting in the spam folder, but of course there is no spam folder in a POP3 email. I then deleted the POP3 account on the second machine and reinstalled it as an IMAP account and there were all the missing emails as state by 1and1! Is this normal, seems totally bizarre to me? The obvious solution is for my wife to delete her POP3 account and replace it with an IMAP account, but she has hundreds of business emails stored in different folders going back years and cannot risk losing them. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem plese?

Answer:Losing emails on POP3 which come through on IMAP account

I suspect it isn't a proper POP3 account, which would retrieve all incoming mail including spam, but retrieval by POP3 of messages in the Inbox of a web-based service. Messages which have been filtered out from the Inbox won't, as you've discovered, be downloaded.
IMAP will replicate all of the folders on the server in each of the computers with which it is set up.
What your wife could do initially, to safeguard her saved business mail, is to set up Apple Mail with IMAP to see exactly what is there that needs to be retained. If all her business messages are still there on the server, she could then change Outlook to IMAP too, but would have to set up her various existing folders on the IMAP server.

Hi there

Whoever designed the base colors for Office 2013 must have been totally STONE DEAF and COLOR BLIND at the same time. I can't believe that comments weren't made before this stuff was allowed out of the door.

There's almost no possibilities to customize the backgrounds or colors and on a large monitor the base white looks really HIDEOUS -- you need a good pair of Sunglasses while working with it.

The only other choice is some type of Grey (shown in screenshot) which looks very similar to "The Fruit Company's Window colour scheme. Still looks hideous and that Blue !!!!!.

Outlook also displays the unread message titles in the most sickly blue (can't seem to change it) I've ever seen.

Before I remove this POS from my computer is there anyway to De-Uglify or customize like I had in Office 2010 with the Black background.

I don't like it opening with a prompt screen before I get the base screen (often needs another TWO keyboard strokes !! -- example for EXCEL 2013 shown) -- I should be able to open it in a Window with the menus just like like Office 2010. It means I now have to make a load of extra keyboard strokes before I actually get a workbook screen to start getting my work done.

I don't want the sign in reminders either -- I don't intend to use Cloud services etc.

A normal POP3 account would result in a message sent via WLM being captured in the "Sent items" folder in WLM but not synchronized to the account on the mail server and then appear in the online "Sent" folder.

Am I thinking clear here or has my brain encountered some fog? Is this a unique Microsoft Windows Live Hotmail behavior?

I can't get the email app to send emails from my windows phone 8.1 (denim). I have never got this to work. Sending works with the gmail account from within my email app but not from my other imap account. It seems to be a common problem with windows phone and the error code that comes up is very generic.
Error code 80072F30
Can anyone help it's most annoying as I reply, forgetting that it wont' send and it doesn't' immediately come up with an error, it just goes into a drafts box.
Syncing folders and receiving email works fine though. I've tried every combo of security settings and I'm sure the login etc is correct.

So, the obvious one to check is date/time. Is it correct? Timezone too.

I'm asking partially for my own purposes but every now and again I get asked what the best method for dealing with spam is. I don't know how to answer really because I deal with my email through my phone quite often and it's usually pretty easy to delete stupid messages with a few taps of the finger and move along with my day. But for some that's just too tedious. The reason I don't do much in the way of automatic filtration myself is because I don't want to risk missing something that is flagged as a false positive, missing a message from someone who sincerely wanted me to see something they sent.

My gut says you can either filter on the server side with some kind of app that can be enabled or installed through cPanel, while alternatively there's probably a local filtration that could be done by the client software, and if there's anything outside of those possibilities, I'm not aware of it. So I'm wondering what the best approach to this kind of problem is. Is there a particualr client software that would work better than another at this kind of thing? Perhaps Thunderbird has some awesome extensions available that could be added in? I don't know.

Thanks for helping.

So, I have been using Outlook 2010 with Exchange and a number of POP accounts. It is not unusual for me to change the FROM account to pick a different email address to show as the sender.

HOWEVER, I recently changed my gmail accounts from POP to IMAP and now, when I try to send as any of them, the outbound message stays stuck in my outbox.

Sending FROM an exchange email works fine and clears the outbox immediately
Sending FROM a POP email works fine and clears the outbox immediately
Sending FROM an IMAP email the message sticks in the outbox and never clears

Funny though (weird not haha) that when I test the account...
File > Account Settings > Change > Test Account Settings
THAT WORKS FINE!

But when I send using New E-mail, THAT MESSAGE STAYS STUCK in the outbox.

Answer:Send as IMAP account not clearing messages from OUTBOX.

Many times Outlook won't immediately send a new message but have to click the Send/Receive icon on the toolbar. I've seen a business desire to not send from Outlook until the end of the day and the last thing done was to click Send/Receive.

Hi,

I try to be strict about when I download email, so that I'm not interrupted by messages when I'm working.

I'm just trying out windows mail and I'd like to be able to send a message without having the software then automatically check for new messages. Does anyone know if this is possible?

If you are like me you probably got very frustrated with the Win10 Mail app's inability to separate the username from the outgoing e-mail address (which are not necessarily the same and in my case they are in fact different). For a long time I have been complaining via the feedback app about this problem, but it seems MS has quietly fixed the issue on 10586.11 (or maybe even earlier)...

The trick is to delete your entire e-mail account setup for your IMAP account, and start setting one up from scratch using the 'advanced setup' then 'internet email' options. You will notice there is now an extra field to let you specify email address in addition to the username.

But the MS software engineers apparently rolled this out in a rush and forgot about updating the 'modify account' settings to let you see these extra email address field as well. Which means as it is now, once you have initially setup your email address field, you will never be able to modify it... hence the need to start setting a new account up from scratch.

Hello everyone,

I posted this on the email forum and did not get any replies. I hope that I have better luck getting help here, since this is also an Outlook issue.

The problem is that Outlook wants to deliver IMAP email to a separate PST, not the Outlook.PST, and also puts the email in separate In Boxes.

I first encountered this problem when I set up Outlook 2010, because the automatic configuration of my email accounts (I have 3.) set the server to IMAP instead of POP, which is what I had been using. This would not have been a problem, except that Outlook also created separate PST files and Outlook In Boxes for each account. With POP, I always had all of my email in the same In Box and Outlook.PST, which is what I prefer.


Now, to the present problem. I now have an iPhone, and IMAP is a better way to manage email between 2 devices (my notebook PC and the iPhone). So, the problem is twofold:

How do I set up my new MobileMe IMAP account in Outlook to deliver email to the Outlook.PST file, and in the main In Box?

and

How can I change my present Gmail POP accounts to IMAP and have them also delivered to the Outlook.PST file, and the main In Box?

Your assistance is greatly appreciated and recognized with appropriate "rep".

Thank you for your consideration of my issue.

Hello,

I have been using WLM 2011 for a couple of years now. Everything was good until last Thursday. I opened WLM and got an error about login failed. After checking my account settings, I noticed everything was now set up as IMAP. I called my ISP and they confirmed it was supposed to be POP3.

So... can I reset the account back to POP3 without losing my mail?

I did do a system restore back to a point a couple of days before this happened. No change.

Thanks for your help.

Hi,

I connect to an email server that allows both pop3 and imap. I use IMAP. When I receive an email that is on a certain subject I put it in the apropriate subfolder under Inbox. As soon as I do that the email is automatically sorted on the server and from there on my cellphone. Read/Unread status is also in sync.

My friend has been using the same server for years and has received thousands of emails. He has been reading them in Outlook (now 2010) using POP3 and has been sorting them into folders. Because he uses POP3 the sorting is only done locally and his cellphone/web-email-access do not see the sorting he has done on his desktop.

Is there a way to "convert" his account to IMAP while at the same time preserve the sorting he has already done on his desktop?

Thanks!
 

Answer:convert a pop3 account to imap while preserving sorting/folder structure?

If using Outlook (or possibly any email client) you cannot change a POP3 account to IMAP. The way I would do it is to remove the incoming server from the POP3 account so it will not download any more email and add an IMAP account. Then drag your personal folders from the POP3 to the IMAP account. Maybe 1 folder at a time so it does not time out. When you are finished and sure everything is on the IMAP server you can delete the POP3 account.

So I just set up my first IMAP account after being stuck with POP for a long time.
 
I use Windows Live Mail and had tons of folders and message rules which I'm now trying to replicate for IMAP. I had to decide between local email rules or server based rules/filters. I went with the latter so it would be all done at the source.
 
I set up a new filter to put anything from my hotmail email into a folder called 'Test'. Pretty simple.
 
But upon sending the test email from hotmail to my new IMAP account, it bounces back with the following error:
 
A message that you sent could not be delivered to one or more of its
recipients. This is a permanent error. The following address(es) failed:  "info+Test"@ (insert my IMAP account domain here)    (generated from [email protected](insert my IMAP account domain here))    No Such User Here
 
So it's just butchering the email address it seems. Weird. Any thoughts on this? I've been back and forth with the host admins and they've been pretty useless.

Answer:New IMAP account - email filters causing messages to bounce back

You'd have to post the actual filter you're using.   I have never seen an IMAP filter result in an "alternate e-mail address" such as "info+Test."
 
It should simply be set up such that upon receipt if the sender is {insert your hotmail address here} or if your sender contains "hotmail.com" [if you want to cast a broad net] then move the message to the Test folder.
 
Screen shots of the filter rule set up as you create it at each step of the dialog, with the personal bits redacted, of course, would be most helpful as a starting point.

Question: IMAP in MS Outlook

I'm using MS Outlook to check some IMAP accounts. The IMAP folders appear below the ordinary mailbox folders in the pane on the left of the window. However, each time I start Outlook they are closed up (with a little + next to them) so I can't see the IMAP folders they contain until I click the + to expand them. This makes it easy to miss messages if I forget to check in them as I do not see them as bold entries indicating there are new messsages.Is there a way to make they stay expanded all the time?

Hi !
"Outlook.com now has IMAP
by Steve Kafka on September 12
We're happy to announce the immediate availability of IMAP (and OAuth) for Outlook.com.
Outlook.com already supports the industry's best email connectivity with Exchange ActiveSync (EAS), which is available on the majority of smartphones and tablets, including Windows Phone, iOS, and Android devices, as well as the Windows 8 Mail app and Outlook 2013.
With today's announcement, we now have a richer email experience across devices and apps, including those not using EAS, such as Mac Mail and Thunderbird on a Mac. Why IMAP ?
While we believe that EAS is the most robust protocol for connecting to your email, with syncing in near real time,
and superior battery and network efficiency, there are still some devices and apps that haven't made the upgrade to EAS.
As an older protocol, IMAP is widely supported on feature phones and other email clients such as those on a Mac.
We heard your feedback loud and clear that this was important.
In addition to offering more complete device connectivity, IMAP (along with OAuth) gives developers opportunities to build third-party clients and services that offer value-added scenarios on top of your Outlook.com email.
We are excited to launch the first set of services today that integrate with Outlook.com, and look forward to sharing many more in the future.

Many apologies if this has already been discussed. I just switched my account from POP to IMAP because I want to view new email on both my phone and Outlook 2007 on my computer.

When I delete a IMAP message in Outlook, I would like the message moved to the Trash folder, then deleted from the Inbox (not just marked for deletion). You may ask, why not just use POP. First, I do not want to leave the messages on the server when using POP. If I use POP, then the phone will not see the message it it is downloaded to Outlook first.

I am guessing that a possible solution is to use IMAP on the phone, and POP in Outlook. What do you think?
 

Answer:Delete IMAP in Outlook

Hi wsmyth

If you use that configuration - IMAP on your phone and POP for Outlook 2007, make sure you configure Outlook 2007 to Leave a copy of the messages on the server. Otherwise, Outlook 2007 will delete the messages from the server when you download messages into Outlook 2007.
Tools > Account Settings > E-mail tab
Double click the e-mail account to Change or select the e-mail account and click the Change button.
More Settings button > Advanced tab
Place a check mark in: Leave a copy of messages on the server
OK > Next > Finish > Close to save and close.
That configuration should work, set it up and send yourself a few Test messages to test it.

Well I decided to start using IMAP for everything so I have less of a headache trying to get all my emails from different locations. I've ran along a bunch of snags today but I've been able to figure out most of them.

Here's my problem. I'm having Outlook download the entire message into the in box. I then have other folders in that account (IMAP) that I will send that message to using a rule. For example, one of my rules reads:

Apply this rule after the message arrives
From PERSON'S NAME
Move it to the PERSON'S NAME folder

That that works... but it's not displaying things how I would like on this end.

If I get a new message from the person I set the rule up for, I hear a noise telling me there is new mail. If I open the IMAP account none of my folders say there is new mail. But if I click on the folder the message was supposed to be delivered to in then shows up and puts an unread status to it (showing 1 new message in that folder).

Now when I did this using POP3 I didn't have an issue... but with IMAP it's just not working. I've found a temp fix... but I'd rather not use this option.

To fix this, I have to change the folders I want new messages displayed in to "Download entire message" instead of "Download Header Only." Is there a way around this? I would rather just download the headers but still have new mail displayed in the folders I choose.
