How can one download all Gmail folders and sub-folders to Outlook 2013 using IMAP?

The only method I found is to select all the messages in one folder, then click Mark to Download. But I don't want to do this for every Gmail folder.

Is there a way to force the full message download for all Gmail messages in all Gmail folders using IMAP?

Note: In Outlook 2010, this was the method that worked for me. But it is a pain as one has to click lots check boxes. It works, but sucks.

When you use Outlook 2013, full messages in all subscribed folders should be downloaded. Go into Send and Receive settings (Ctrl+Alt+S), and check the settings.
