I use OutlookConnector with several hotmail accounts and a gmail account. Up until recently it has been working fine. Suddenly a couple of days ago Outlook started hanging during the startup send/recieve session.
This happens on both my desktop and my laptop. The Send/recieve status is listed at 80% on both machines every time it hangs, the 3 hotmail accounts have updated. I can click on any of the hotmail inboxes and open the mails.
I presume the gmail acount is in the process of updating which is giving the incomplete send recieve status. I have left both the PCs for several hours and the status is the same when I come back. Clicking to open the gmail account tree results in outlook going into a not responding state. The only option after that is to shut down outlook from Task Manager.
Outlook and Connector are both fully updated. There have been no recent updates for either since the last time it was working. I have not changed any settings on my gmail account.
As this started happening on 2 PCs at the same time and the symptoms are identical I am wondering if Google have changed something in gmail that has broken the compatibility with connector?
UPDATE: Further checking confirms this is happening at the synchronizing subscribed folders on the gmail account stage of the send/receive process.
