    A few question before I decide to switch to Pop from imap

    I set up Gmail as Pop and it runs so much faster and smoother. For me who only uses my desktop to use email that works perfect. For anyone that wants to access their Gmail on other devices might want to stick with imap.

    A few question before I decide to switch to Pop from imap

    I started a conversation from your profile Diane, Do you have a public email, if so I will gladly send you the issue I am having with my email address. It's a bit confusing but I'm sure if you and i can communicate it should be taken cared of. Ron

    A few question before I decide to switch to Pop from imap

    Thanks for your reply, Just to clarify, are you saying it might be easier to create a new account, set it up as pop. Then once set up Outlook 2010 should download all my folders from my Gmail account? Once Pop is set up I can delete the imap account in Outlook and also in the default windows...

    I did further investigating about the send/receive mail being so slow due to the syncing. I found this, Should I use POP or IMAP for Gmail? Step 1: Make sure POP is the best way to read your emails IMAP and POP are both ways to read your Gmail messages in other email clients. IMAP can be used...

    Can someone explain syncing with Outlook and Gmail

    Thank you for your reply and also the link. I will read it, so far comparing Outlook to Gmail on my browser it seems that I am getting my mail. It's just the difference of how Outlook is working with Gmail that caught my attention. Thanks again

    Can someone explain syncing with Outlook and Gmail

    Since I have added my Gmail email to my Outlook 2010 I've noticed something I've never seen before in Outlook 2010. I had an email address from a ISP so when I checked my mail manually or as Outlook checks every minute., it took a second if that long and all was sent and received unless there...

    All of a sudden I lost connection to Gmail servers

    Does 2FA make you confirm it's you in Outlook? or just when you login from the web? I do change my ip using a VPN so if that will affect Outlook 2FA might be a good idea as long as I don't have to worry about it asking me to verify every time outlook checks for mail.

    All of a sudden I lost connection to Gmail servers

    With me and keeping my life on my phone it wasn't the speed of the phone it was the risk of losing it and then if someone found it before I did, they would have access to all my info and accounts. I decided years ago there is nothing that I can't wait until I get home to check my desktop.......lol

    All of a sudden I lost connection to Gmail servers

    ***UPDATE*** There is no "manage third party access " in Google security settings. The fix is to enable "Allow less secure apps to access Gmail" By default Google turns it off to make Gmail more secure, Google tells you it is not recommended to turn it on so I didn't, even though I wanted to...
