Can anyone tell me how to stop Outlook 2010 (Win 7) synchronizing with GMail. I want all the emails to remian in GMail but can't find the menu items in Outlook 2010 to stop this synching from happening.

Hi Diane thanks for the reply. I'm a home user and use the GMail account as my only mail account. I have setup Outlook to connect to GMail to send/receive emails in to my Outlook email Inbox. The issue is that when I delete an email in my Outlook inbox (that's conencted to the GMail account) it synchronizes with GMail and deletes the email items in GMail. I do not want Outlook to do this. Only since I upgraded to Outlook 2010 has this been happening. Outlook 2007 worked fine, but since then I've had to reinstall Windows and recreate my Outlook 2010 inbox using GMail email items. Is there an option to stop Outlook 2010 from synchroniizing (and deleting my GMail emails) and only just send / receive emails?

Then you need to set up GMail as a POP account rather than an IMAP account. (You will need to remove the GMail IMAP account in Outlook and creatre a POP account in it's place). Look in the GMail help for the settings to use. However be warned that the POP settings will ONLY allow you to download email from the Inbox - you won't see any other folders. You will alos need to tell Outlook (in the mail setup dialog) to leave a copy of the email on the server, otherwise it will delete downloaded emails from the server.If you find my response helpful, please click on the " Vote as Helpful" button!Thank you!
