    Constantly freezing Outlook 2010

    Thank you so much Diane for a very comprehensive answer. That helps a lot. Around 70% of emails are in Inbox. 20% in sent and 10% in other folders. I unsubscribed All Mail folders from downloading. What is the difference between unsubscribing folders (in IMAP folders options) and unchecking...

    Enormous size of IMAP .pst file

    Is it possible to transfer all the data (contacts, calendars, notes, tasks) from one .pst\ost file to another .pst file?

    30GB Gmail account and Outlook 2010

    In Gmail settings it says "Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since 9/18/13" That's about the earliest message I'm getting in Outlook inbox. I don't know why POP was enabled, but could it be a reason why Outlook wasn't downloading messages older than 2013.09?

    30GB Gmail account and Outlook 2010

    Hi, I have a question regarding how to configure Gmail account, which is over 30GB, to use it with Outlook 2010 or how to configure it in Outlook. The account is almost 4 years old and it's size is so big mainly because a lot of it's emails include graphic files attachments. 2 problems that I'm...

    Enormous size of IMAP .pst file

    I've noticed that in Outlook 2013 there is no designated .pst file other data than emails and IMAP files are now called .ost. If I have five email accounts configured in Outlook 2103, in which .ost file my contacts and the rest will be stored? I'm guessing in the one that is chosen as a default...

    Constantly freezing Outlook 2010

    I always thought that huge .pst files are drastically slowing computers down because they take most of RAM. Since .pst is only one file then it has to be whole uploaded to RAM for Outlook to be able to use it. Isn't this correct? Which configuration is better in terms of internet bandwidth...

    Constantly freezing Outlook 2010

    OK, so AV addin is gone and I don't really need any of those benefits of downloading full messages. But which option gives better performance for Outlook; downloading full messages or headers only? I heard that downloading full messages is is faster, which seems to be correct if you don't have...

    Constantly freezing Outlook 2010

    And what is the difference in practical terms between "Downloading full messages" and "Downloading headers only"?

    Enormous size of IMAP .pst file

    So just to clarify; it contains only emails and it can't contain data like contacts, tasks or notes? If I delete it will everything download again from a server? Another thing I don't understand is if my IMAP .pst file has like 10GB and I delete it, why after it's recreated it's much smaller...

    Constantly freezing Outlook 2010

    Thank you very much for your help. I thought that it was caused by too slow WiFi connection (there are another 25 computers on the network), but disabling AVG add-in seems to fixed the freezing problem. I will be testing it tomorrow, but it looks all good now. If not I will try to run ScanPST...

    Problem with IMAP .pst file

    Yes, I deleted IMAP file by deleting email account and then I set it up again. Now I have 2GB IMAP .pst instead of 13GB which is great but Outlook is still freezing. Just to confirm; is it safe to delete IMAP .pst file? Does everything going to be downloaded from the server again or I should...

    Problem with IMAP .pst file

    I see. When I choose to download full messages then Send\Receive process is stuck, shown time to complete action keeps increasing, I don't now if it's because computer is too slow or because of network connection. That's why I chose to download headers only for subscribed folders. Any idea what...

    Problem with IMAP .pst file

    Thank you very much for your help, Diane. If it's basically the same as POP3 .pst; can it store contacts, calendars, tasks? Also my Outlook 2010 is frequently freezing. I'm suspecting that it's because of Send\Receive Settings, "Particulary Receive mail items" option. What is the best...
