I have been using the following settings for a while now when setting up user's access to IMAP account under Outlook:

But I have recently come across some issues, especially concerning synchronisation :


Lately I read that if the user's sub-folders are actually within the INBOX folder and that one indicates "inbox" in the advanced settings. I tested this but the sync errors didn't disappear :

I'm still getting the following errors : 8004DF03-0-0-322, 8004010E-30141301-0-310, 800CCC0F-0-0-560

My ISP, Infomaniak, however assures me that it is good practice to create subfolders at the same level as the inbox rather than within the inbox itself

So I followed their advice and moved the folders out of the inbox and ran the sync again and I'm still getting the sync errors: 8004DF03-0-0-560

Any one care to share their thoughts and experience concerning these different issues and settings ?

The use of the \inbox path and location of the folders is entirely dependant on the imap server - if the isp says you don't need it, don't use it. (Only a small % of imap servers need that).

Are these send and receive errors or errors in Sync issues folders? Do they include text or just the numbers?

This is a sync issue in a gmail account - basically what it is saying is 9 things were deleted from the inbox but something is out of whack. Based on the time stamps, its when i went through and deleted a bunch of mail - an hour later i had the same error but no item count and then the errors stopped. That tells me that the issue was resolved. In this case, it looks like i was deleting and outlook resyncing faster than the server could update the deleted list - there were 3 sync errors generated in less than a minute referencing 7, 11, and 19 messages.

11:04:15 Synchronizing local changes in folder 'Inbox'
11:04:16 9 item(s) deleted in online folder
11:04:16 Error synchronizing folder
11:04:16 [8004010F-0-0-560]
11:04:16 Done

sometimes these messages will reference a specific message subject - that means it is having trouble syncing it. if the message size is 0 in outlook, move or delete the message.
Thanks for your response Diane

I finally settled on the sub-folders being at the same height as the Inbox, as recommended by the ISP

Still getting a few sync errors but my test show that the sync process seems to be operating normally

We will keep this under observation to see if it lasts
