    Spam folder not showing in Outlook

    That was me in that thread. That account was not a Microsoft webmail, it was hosted by Hostgator and they had a spam filter that was creating the Junk Mail folder. I disabled it to fix the problem. Your issue seems to be different. My problem was with the desktop version of Outlook.

    Outlook 2010 Opening Mail Attachment

    This is most likely not an Outlook problem, but a Windows issue. You probably need to reset default app settings that were messed up by that install/uninstall. There are multiple ways to do this; You can pick a file type and reset the default for it, or pick an app and set it back to all its...

    Upgraded Outlook

    I was upgrading my wife's Win 10 computer, from Office 2016 to 2019. The install made me first uninstall the old version, because the new one was Click To Run. I was expecting to do a lot of work for setup, because she has 5 mail accounts, of all varieties, a separate pst to hold contacts and...

    Manual Archiving 2016

    I wonder if you could create a 2nd, temporary profile. Create just the POP account in it, accessing the existing POP data file. Then create the archive and move the old mail into it. Then go back to using the original profile, and provide access to the archive by opening it in the original profile.

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    Also on this page that I linked to before https://support.google.com/mail/thread/4933937?hl=en I see this: To get rid of thousands of "not deleted" emails, I first marked all mails as read, then the mails in Inbox and Sent as unread, filtered on all read mails in the All Mails folder, and...

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I suspect those 100,000 messages are sitting somewhere unexpected, and I thought they might be in Trash. But my tests show that Trash items are not shown in All Mail. Have you tried looking in all the Labels that are listed on the left side of Gmail? Also take a look in Manage Labels, to see...

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I have a Gmail account but I rarely use it, so this concept of All Mail is new to me. I am playing with it now, and it's behavior is somewhat unexpected. I think am reading through and trying to understand this page, which I think may hold a clue to your problem...

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I think I am catching on now. So your goal is to get them out of All Mail, so they no longer count toward your total space used?

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I was unaware of the "All Mail" box, and researching it, its purpose seems kind of vague. So my question to you is why are you looking in there, instead of just using the Inbox? Also see if anything useful here: https://support.google.com/mail/thread/4933937?hl=en

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I don't have an All Mail list in my Outlook 2016. Is that something you configured?

    Moved many emails to Outlook external folder, need to delete on Gmail server

    I'll answer this first, since it is straightforward. When you transfer your unwanted emails from the Gmail inbox to the newly created data file, you should MOVE them, not copy them. Then they are gone from the Gmail inbox. As far as your problem now, I am just throwing out an idea that may not...

    Outlook 365 Calendar

    If I was to guess, i'd say Outlook was set up with your hotmail in the days before all hotmail was Exchange. So perhaps Outlook decided to create that Outlook.pst file as a place to hold your calendar. I am guessing a new profile with hotmail set up as Exchange would fix your issue.

    Outlook 365 Calendar

    OK Outlook created a .pst file on its own to hold the calendar, because the .ost file for the account could not hold a calendar.But if you create a new profile with hotmail as an Exchange account, that should be the default data file and therefore hold calendar, i think

    Outlook 365 Calendar

    I did test it. Created a new profile, put email account "D" (the account that had no calendar presently) in as the first email account. (it is hosted on Hostgator). And it got a calendar, and meeting invites sent to it are listed on the calendar. So a solution for you might be to create a new...

    Outlook 365 Calendar

    Yes it is odd. i am trying to add a calendar for that account and i can't figure out how. I wonder if i create a new, 2nd, profile and add that account first, if it will get a calendar?
