I am on Outlook 2007, Asus laptop running Vista. Several email accounts on Outlook, of which hotmail using Outlook Connector.
I have had a range of problems in recent days.
The most pressing current problem is that my Outlook is having problems with hotmail. It uses Outlook Connector. I am running the latest version. After earlier problems, I have downloaded any updates available.
Currently, it is not receiving hotmail. If I access hotmail in a browser, there is several days worth of new mail there, but my Outlook inbox has not imported mail for four days now.
Last night and this morning, Outlook was also not sending from hotmail. I would have to shut Outlook down and then restart, after which the email would finally go out.
Now it seems to be sending sporadically. But I still receive nothing.
A couple of months ago, something similar happened and I had to delete the account and recreate again.
Last week, I had another crisis with Outlook after trying to convert one of my gmail accounts from Pop to IMAP. This was a total disaster. According to every instruction, I had done the entire thing correctly, but it made my Outlook go completely haywire, so I went back to Pop after much pain and misery.
As a result, I have also dramatically reduced the size of all folders and archived unnecessary materials.
Finally, I cannot find the sync log or sync issues folder. I have looked and looked. I know it's supposed to be in folder view. I have looked up and down that folder list. I have looked inside other folders. I have done endless google searches to see where else it might be. I have used HELP. Nothing has helped to identify the folder.
