The settings are: Incoming (IMAP) Server Server address: imap-mail.outlook.com Port: 993 Encrypted Connection: SSL Outgoing (SMTP) Server Server address: smtp-mail.outlook.com Port: 25 (or 587 if 25 is blocked) Authentication: Yes Encrypted Connection: TLS ...

You're going to have to work around this a little bit yourself. What you will need is a daemon or frequently run job that fires off something like fetchmail which is configured to login to your imap account, suck off your mail and either forward it to your gmail address or manually deliver it into another imap account (again, your gmail box). This will need ...

The IMAP cert is signed by a "Google Internet Authority" cert which is in turn signed by Equifax your client is not following the certificate chain of trust properly.

You can do that using a Filter. Steps to follow: Go to setting page of GMail. Click on the Filters Tab. Click on "Create a new filter" buton. In the "From" field write "*@box432.bluehost.com" (without " " - if your mails are comming from addresses like admin@box432.bluehost.com, email@box432.bluehost.com, xxx@box432.bluehost.com etc...)

Yes, you can use POP and IMAP simultaneously.

You need to set up your IMAP client as Google instruct in order for the Gmail labels to work. See Recommended IMAP client settings If you client is one of (iPhone, Thunderbird, Apple Mail, Outlook) then click the link and read Google's specific instructions for those clients. Otherwise, you need to configure your client as follows: Sending: Do not ...

Gmail cannot read mail from external IMAP accounts. Instead, you can set the external account to forward to Gmail, or just use POP. If the external account supports IMAP, but not POP or forwarding, you're out of luck. I'm not aware of any such email providers.

Yahoo! Mail does have IMAP at imap.mail.yahoo.com, but you have to send a nonstandard command pre-login, namely ID ("GUID" "1"). There are some modified clients available to do this, you can find some here. Hotmail does not have IMAP, but does have POP3 available at pop3.live.com.

Google's duplicate matching is based on the Message-ID: header. As long as they're truly the same message duplicates will not be created.

Per Microsoft's website: The IMAP protocol is unsupported, they only support POP3. "The upgrade process supports email accounts using Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3), but not Instant Message Access Protocol (IMAP). A protocol is a standard set of formats and procedures that allow PCs to exchange information." For you phone they say you can either ...

Gmail is pretty good at preventing duplicate messages. In fact it is so good that it will even sometimes eliminate non-duplicate messages. For example, if you send the same exact email twice (same 'from', 'to', 'subject', and 'body') to a Gmail account (within a few minutes or so), it will only appear once in the receiving Gmail account. So my guess is that ...

You can kinda do it through gmail. What you can do is (and I do this) have a "slave" account, which is an account you want to use that uses gmail, but you don't actually check this one, and a "master" account, which is the one you check and can send emails from as master and slave. First open up your slave account, go to settings > forwarding and IMAP/POP ...

I was wondering the same thing myself. The answer is Yes. How is spam handled? Gmail's spam filters also work in your IMAP* client by automatically diverting messages that are suspected of being unwanted messages into '[Gmail]/Spam' and keeping them out of your inbox. If you find a message that should be marked as spam, just move it to ...

Had the same problem. New to Gmail. After sending messages from my phone through the phone email app/client they would appear in the Gmail imap/sent folder and not in the Gmail sent folder. Even worse if you saved it in drafts on the phone before sending it. It would then also appear in the imap/drafts folder as well. So now it appears in multiple folders ...

I think you've hit upon a little industry-standards issue. Gmail is happy to let email clients (Thunderbird, Outlook, etc.) create and use their own folders within the IMAP account, but Gmail itself will continue to populate its own folders. In Outlook 2007 & 2010, in the (IMAP) Account Settings, you can tell Outlook to utilize Gmail's Sent & Trash ...

There is a "not marked as important" condition: in:inbox -is:important With minus you get the opposite results. Create a custom filter with in:inbox -is:important in the filed Has the words and skip the inbox and create a new label "not important".

It would appear that in an attempt to draw a line in the sand and increase functionality and synchronization times, Microsoft has adopted the implementation of EAS (Exchange Active Sync). Whilst this is a good measure within the Office & Windows Mobile based environment, it does alienate the other mobile communities. In reality I doubt that it will be ...

It supports Exchange Active Sync. I haven't found any info regarding IMAP though. Whups! I might have attached the wrong link, since it mentions Office 365 and not outlook.com. However The Verge says it will support Exchange Active Sync just like Hotmail does. But I'm a little unsure of exactly what settings to use. Here we go an article that described how ...

Use IMAPsync. It's exactly what you're looking for. I successfully used it a few years ago. I don't know for sure about the special characters issue, since I don't have any labels with special characters, but the other issues you brought up work flawlessly. I ran IMAPsync on an underpowered GUI-less virtual server that the company I was leaving was ...

I'm pretty sure Mail.app only counts those messages in the INBOX, not Archived messages. I know that's what getmail does.

You can configure Gmail to pull mail using POP3 in Settings > Accounts and Import. This removes the mail from your domain and stores it in Gmail. Gmail lets you choose which email address to send from, so your outgoing email can still use yourname@yourdomain.com. The only problem I've had using this feature is that the polling interval is too slow for me. ...

Using the button in Gmail and the imap spam folder from Gmail is an equivalent action. See Gmail's Help Center on IMAP settings. Junk mail and spam: Do NOT enable your client's junk mail filters. Gmail's spam filters also work in your IMAP client, and we recommend turning off any additional anti-spam or junk mail filters within your client. Your ...

The problem seems to be what IMAP client is used to copy the messages into gmail. This is a known issue where the IMAP client does not specify the internal date of the email and the server defaults to the current time. In my case I was attemping to copy old courier Maildir folders into gmail. I ended up using this link that gave direction on how to have ...

Try "Advanced IMAP Controls" in Gmail Labs. UPDATED: 1) In Gmail go to Settings -> Labs an enable "Advanced IMAP Controls". 2) Under Settings -> "Forward and POP/IMAP" in the "IMAP Access" section select "Limit IMAP folders to contain no more than this many messages" and set the limit to 1000. (A lower number is not possible at the time of writing.) This ...
