I am having trouble with my Outlook 2007 IMAP accounts. I have two of them configured for gmail.

At home I can access the email accounts no problem. When I bring my laptop to work, the IMAP accounts cannot connect. I get the following message:

Task 'Synchronizing subscribed folders for JIM.' reported error (0x800CCC0E) : 'Outlook cannot synchronize subscribed folders for JIM. Error: Cannot connect to the server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

I have checked the account settings, they are correct. Funny thing is, if I configure the accounts as POP3, they work. However that does me no good as use several different machines over different locations so I need to use IMAP.

I have check my firewall settings in Mcafee, made sure the new network at work is set as trusted. I've disabled both Mcafee and Windows firewalls, this does not help. I can connect to the internet.

I am using a HP 8440p Elite Book with Windows 7 64 bit

Intel Core i7 CPU 2.67GHz

4 GB RAM

Office 2007

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Maybe your Office IT dept is blocking the IMAP port 143? Have you asked them?

Thanks for all the answers.

I've gone to a third office and had no problems there, so it seems to be a problem upstream from my computer. I've also notices since the OP that my IM client (Pidgin) also cannot connect at this location.

I've spoken to the IT guy who claims that nothing is being blocked, but that seems to be the case. I'll keep pushing him.

Thanks again for all the efforts.

JIM
