    Outlook 2013 - Odd Sync behaviour

    In the process of slimming down my inbox (moving stuff to other folders) Ive noticed some odd behaviour by sync. If I look at the msg count on the new folder after the move it has the expected msg count. Sync chugs away and after a while the Yahoo web mail shows the same msg count. Then...
