Hi,
I have a question regarding how to configure Gmail account, which is over 30GB, to use it with Outlook 2010 or how to configure it in Outlook. The account is almost 4 years old and it's size is so big mainly because a lot of it's emails include graphic files attachments.
2 problems that I'm having with this Gmail account in Outlook 2010 is that it's freezing frequently and it downloads only emails since 2013 and on the server there are emails from 2011.
Any solutions?

Log into gmail and check the settings - when you enable pop or imap you can set it to allow only newer messages.

If the account is set to allow all messages, give it time - outlook maybe need 24 - 48 hours to get all synced.

In Gmail settings it says
"Status: POP is enabled for all mail that has arrived since 9/18/13"
That's about the earliest message I'm getting in Outlook inbox.
I don't know why POP was enabled, but could it be a reason why Outlook wasn't downloading messages older than 2013.09?

I don't think the pop setting affects IMAP, only the imap setting of max #.[DOUBLEPOST=1410835940,1410831230][/DOUBLEPOST]BTW, you can have both imap and pop enabled - that just lets gmail know you want to connect using either method.

If you are talking about a 30gb Gmail account I assume it is a Google Apps paid account? In this case you are probably using the Google App sync tool for Outlook. You will find an icon down in the taskbar near the time. Right click it and select mailbox size limit. Here you can choose how much Outlook keeps locally. Just be warned you may have to tweak the registry to allow a larger PST than the default as the Google account is probably larger than what Outlook can handle anyway.
