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.

Gmail does not natively support reading imap based emails so you will need to use an intermediary solution. In this case I suggest following the answer on a related question: https://webapps.stackexchange.com/a/7629/14954 Good luck!

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 download ...

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 ...

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".

You need to generate an application-specific password from your Google Account Settings. Once done, that application specific password must be provided in Outlook, instead of your regular password.

You change the default settings only if you're a super admin. Steps: Login to mail.zoho.com as Super Admin.  Go to Control panel User Details Click on the email address And you can modify the IMAP and POP setting for all the users in the organization.  Hope this helps.

You can use a browser plugin (with GreaseMonley) to fetch pop3 email every 8 minutes. See http://www.danielslaughter.com/projects/gmail-pop3-checker-for-greasemonkey/#install

Cause The "web login required error" means that Gmail is not recognizing your password or you are signing from a new location or device or you have enabled 2-Step Verification for your account. You need to generate an Application specific password for MsgExtract. See Generating an application password when 2-Step verification is enabled in Gmail Google ...

Google support suggests that if you're migrating from one Gmail/Google Apps account to a different Gmail/Google Apps account, just use POP3 between them. (Directions here) However, you want to only copy/move some of the messages. I would use a third-party email client that can connect to Gmail via IMAP. (Thunderbird would probably be my choice.) Connect ...

Short answer In your IMAP client try using search to find unread messages as "snooze" is not the same as any other Gmail feature. Explanation From How Inbox works with Gmail - Inbox by Gmail Help Gmail and Inbox have many of the same features, but there are differences. Gmail's read later (mark as unread) is similar to Snooze but no the same. One of ...

This has been a long requested function for Gmail, however, Google has never added support for this. They only support POP3, your client will have to setup POP3 to use Gmail as you intend.

Without more details, I think that the best option is to do the bulk operations in http://mail.google.com just before you could left alone your Thunderbird instance for several hours, as the sync process could take "a while" and consume "a lot" of resources of your computer.

I did a quick Google search and this website came up. Looks interesting, quick look at the code and nothing malicious appears to be there, but I take no responsibility for it :) http://www.labnol.org/internet/extract-gmail-addresses/28037/ Another option you have is to put an out of office reply informing everyone that sends you a mail that you no longer ...

Generally, when users set up IMAP, the biggest complaints focus on the initial syncing from the server in-box to the user's in-box, often taking an extended period while the 1,000's of emails on the server are transferred to Outlook. This is completely avoidable and for many entirely unnecessary. A lot depends upon how often the users rely on indexed ...

Check Filters from Settings. If there's nothing in Accounts and Forwarding, its likely that you created a filter to forward spam mails.

I am quite late to respond the thread. Recently I did the same task which I am going to share. You can backup Gmail account data by using the free Google takeout tool. But it will create .mbox file for backed up emails which cannot be open or imported directly into MS Outlook. For that you need to convert MBOX file to PST format using a reliable tool ...

Use Gmail Takeout: https://www.google.com/settings/takeout This will leave you with an mbox file. Use Aid4Mail to convert that to a .PST: http://www.aid4mail.com

POP3 is not possible because, I think, it doesn't sync labels. The only other thing is to setup Outlook to only sync specific labels (with IMAP). Possibly another mail client (like Thunderbird or Evolution) would perform better?

I would use a web based service like http://www.xeams.com/ It's 100% free with a fast set up, and you could just take all those emails and forward them to have it filter.

You could try POPing/IMAPing your email to an email client, using one of the various spam filter solutions. Back in the days before I was 100% using Gmail (2008?), I was a big fan of SpamPal under Windows. But it looks now to be a dead project (although there are some recent kudos on the sourceforge page, so I think it still might work). One caveat with ...

I'm quite sure this is currently not possible from within Gmail. You can try to sync ALL your mail with f.e. Thunderbird or Outlook and look for a way to do the trick in that program, I don't know much of these so I don't know if it's possible with them. But I'm sure Gmail can't.

There is no difference between @OUTLOOK.com or @HOTMAIL.com. Your settings should be: server: m.hotmail.com ssl enabled Server Type: Microsoft Exchange I'm using Moxer Mail for Android.

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 ...
