This folder up to date vs all folders up to date

Hi,
When I opened outlook today it came up as “this folder is up to date” on bottom right hand side rather than “all folders up to date”. I amconnected to Microsoft exchange.

Does it just take time for it to sync when first opening to go from “this folder is up to date” to “all folders are up to date”?

When I restarted outlook and opened it up, it did indicate that two older folders were being updated and then said “all folders are up to date”.

Is it a case of simply waiting time for outlook to change the status? Also, does it matter to functionality of outlook if it simply states this folder is up to date. This will save me restarting outlook simply for a GUI.

Thanks
Danny

Yes, its usually a matter of just needing to wait, especially if the folder have a lot of mail in it. It can also happen if the view is corrupt. Reset the view on the folder to fix this.

FWIW, I would just wait and not restart outlook (after resetting the view).
