Refresh IMAP folder list automatically OUTLOOK 2010

Currently have to right click IMAP email account and select "UPDATE FOLDER LIST" to get the latest folders. Is there a way to do this automatically? Or is this a limitation of Gmail (my account).

It's not a limitation of the gmail account - folder lists are only updated when you choose, they aren't updated automatically.

Old thread, but for benefit of others: Yes, no problem doing in VBA. Here is code:

Dim Bars As CommandBars

Dim Cmd As CommandBarControl

Dim syc As Outlook.SyncObject

Set Bars = Application.ActiveExplorer.CommandBars

Set Cmd = Bars.FindControl(, 5661)

If Not Cmd Is Nothing Then Cmd.Execute
