    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    False alarm on fixing the duplicate nested folders. Appeared gone for a while but the next day all back. The problem was many in LOCAL FOLDERS were empty for unknown reasons. I fixed this by an import of a backup from a couple months ago, then fixed the duplicate folders by just hiding them...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    Should I even bother trying to get the Win10 embedded email working? It looks promising but as I say, not syncing so far. Still messing with it. ATT tech support will not help (for free) getting 3rd party stuff to work but wonder if that applies to a Microsoft product? I think they'll only help...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    Ah-ha. Just confirmed I fully removed the innermost nested redundant account (of 3 making 4 total with the real top level one). I know how to do it now, just tedious.

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    My best guess is that it is, and from the period some weeks ago I mentioned when I multiple times reinstalled eM and sometimes with, and sometimes w/o a new fresh account too. It's possible it happened as a byproduct of that effort and I just did not realize it at the at the time. I went thru a...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    It now appears that I am able, using a bottom-up, approach deletes the nested files and folders, I just have to be patient. Open each folder, delete content emails, move to the next. Then after a few minutes go back and delete the folders. I do have one that's grayed out and italicized (and...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    I have to clarify a few things. If I'm just reading then deleting a daily INBOX email, it deletes immediately and from the server too, I assume, as once I empty trash I never see them again. About once a week, however, if I just open eM and try to delete a random email, I might get the "this...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    Thanks for the prompt reply. It's been a while for me but always amazed! I'm actually not using Outlook now but eMC which also apparently can not delete stuff from the server. it looks like it is but when sync is turned back on, everything is back. For AV it's Microsoft's AV + Mbam premium...

    Duplicate, nested account folders on ATT server

    I have a weird issue in which my email acct. as it sits on the ATT server has become nested (replicated) 3 deep. For example, let's say my acct. name is main-acct-name@pacbell.net followed by inbox-outbox-sent-trash....etc then approx 50 folders with assorted names including a large local...

    POP vs IMAP on iDevices

    I'm helping a friend who's wife has an iPhone and iPad while he uses the iMac. Both use Apple mail. They have IMAP implemented so when she deletes an email from their joint acct. on her iPad, it disappears on his desktop computer, but he wants it retained. She also has her own email acct just...

    Gmail crashing Outlook

    Whoops, my bad. Turns out it was the iCloud account gumming up the works and it was prompting for iCloud credentials with the recurring pop-up. I finally got in and am now trying repair iCloud syncing but it's not happy with my AppleID. Isn't that what it wants? Do not know how Outlook got...

    Gmail crashing Outlook

    In trying to sync Outlook with Gmail, I added the gmail add-in, now deciding not to use gmail, I can't disable it. on opening Outlook 2010 (in both normal and safe mode) it hangs with a gmail password promot. I can not run Outlook to disable add-ins. I tried /safe and /safe:3. I still get the...

    Multiple, intermittent Outlook 2010 errors

    Hey, there's a thought. Competing with the iPhone. Will check that by powering off the iPhone for a while. One of the things I like about eM is it's so "Outlook like" (but without the superfluous complexity), I did not have to learn a new app. I don't think it's the internet connection since...

    Multiple, intermittent Outlook 2010 errors

    I switched to eM on your advice and love it. Most but not all Outlook type problems are gone, HOWEVER, I still get a nagging error intermittently where eM think's I'm offline. The error says "it will down load email when I go back on line". i.e. it think's there's no internet. After a random...

    IMAP server closed the connection

    No, have not found a full solution. I switched to eM Client on Diane's recommendation for my email and it's much better, but I still get a few of what I think are IMAP related errors, but they are not debilitating (ie, things usually continue to work) and the error msg has an "ignore" button...
