    Outlook 365 Exchange - how to change existing POP Gmail to IMAP


    Windows 10 x64, Office 365, Outlook 365 Exchange.

    Within Outlook I have a few POP3 accounts as well. One of them being a Gmail POP3 account.

    I have trying to change that IMAP and went on to do the following

    - go into Gmail using browser
    - settings > selected ENable IMAP + Save
    - go into Outlook and wanted to create a new account (same email address)
    - Outlook reported the account already existed (of course)

    I assumed.. that a new account file would be created (extension .ost) that would reside next to the .pst,
    similar to my Outlook account.

    Have used Outlook.com on POP3 basis in the past, so I have:
    Old account: username-at-outlook.com.pst
    New account: username-at-outlook.com.ost

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    Google Adds IMAP Support to GMail

    GMail has gained IMAP support, one of the most requested features for Google's web-based e-mail service. If you log into your GMail account and head to "settings", the tab for "Forwarding and POP" should now read "Forwarding and POP/IMAP." If it doesn’t, be patient, Google will be rolling out the new IMAP features across the service over the next few days. With IMAP you can access your mail via your desktop client, read mail, make changes and have those changes mirrored by any other client accessing the account. If you access your mail from multiple machines, IMAP allows them all to stay in sync. To enable IMAP in GMail just head to the settings page and change your access from POP to IMAP.

    Outlook 365 inconsistent login behaviour with IMAP gmail

    Hi there
    @fireberd

    I've long since complained about the lack of configuratation possibilities for email accounts in the latest versions (click2run) of Office 2016/2019/365 especially if you have different inbound / outbound mail servers / different user accounts on them etc etc.

    However there is an applet in the control panel (still called Mail Outlook 2016) which allows access to the classical advanced configuration screens --the new simplified screens are 100% useless if you have anything other than typical bog standard email acounts that the Ms database knows about -- the auto customising screens are an abomination !!

    If you have an older version of outlook 2016 you can export and re-import (it's a reg file) the profiles but that's a bit of a messy solution.

    Use the control panel applet while it still exists. Confusing but for O/2106,O/2019,O/365 it's still called Mail Outlook 2016.

    Use the manual setup ( 2nd option on screenshot 2 - haven't got english version but it's in the same place on an eng screen) -- then you'll get all the advanced options etc as before Ms went for the rediculous "auto setup" things - these do actually work !!!! I have some accounts with domain mail servers and they all send / receive mail via outlook 2019 perfectly now.
