    Accessing Outlook accounts from multiple computers

    Thanks, Diane. I definitely need to have my accounts synchronized across my two computers, and if IMAP is the way to make it happen, I'm all for it. I'll get to work on getting that change made.

    Accessing Outlook accounts from multiple computers

    Thanks, Vincenzo and Diane. Maybe I misinterpreted the instructions, because going back now to the ones I found on Slipstick (Configure Gmail Accounts in Outlook), they clearly say to use IMAP. So do these help items from Gmail itself: Read Gmail messages on other email clients using POP -...

    Accessing Outlook accounts from multiple computers

    Thanks, Diane. That's really disappointing. You'd think Microsoft would have anticipated there would be people who would want to do what I want to and would have allowed Outlook to work with or around the way cloud services work. Some of my Outlook accounts used to use the IMAP protocol, so...

    Accessing Outlook accounts from multiple computers

    This seems like it ought to be easy to set up, but it has proven to be anything but. I use a desktop computer at home and a laptop when I travel. Both have Office 365 installed, including Outlook 365, and full access to the same 1 TB of storage on OneDrive that comes with the subscription. I...

    Updating from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 365

    I'm getting ready to move from Outlook 2010 to Outlook 365. Are there any gotchas or things I need to be on the lookout for when making the transition? Also, is it necessary to remove an account from 2010 before I can add it to 365? I have a lot of accounts to move, so if I have to do this...

    Invisible e-mails in Gmail accounts

    Recently I changed my Gmail accounts in Outlook to POP3 from IMAP for a number of reasons, including that I want to be able to access them from multiple devices. One of the accounts works fine but in the other two, while Outlook tells me I have unread messages in my inbox, I can't see them. I...

    Assigning a newly (re)created e-mail account to a specific .pst data file

    Hi, Diane. Thanks for the response. I see that this will work for POP accounts, but what about Gmail accounts, which are usually IMAP? If I reconfigure them to work with POP, rather than IMAP, I take it this ability to identify the desired data file will work too. As for the potential conflict...

    Assigning a newly (re)created e-mail account to a specific .pst data file

    I'm having to rebuild my Outlook accounts after moving from a "spinner" hard drive to a solid-state one. As I recreate my e-mail accounts, I want to assign each one to an already-existing .pst file on a cloud storage service (Dropbox), rather than on the local SSD so I can access the data from...

    Combining PSTs

    I think I can close this thread as it turns out to have been unnecessary.

    Combining PSTs

    Recently I replaced my "spinner" hard drive with a solid-state one. In the process, none of my Outlook accounts were maintained or recreated, so I'm having to rebuild them all. Unfortunately, over the years, I've created numerous .pst files for many of these accounts, and now I'm struggling to...

    Outlook 2010 no longer (?) shrinks large images

    Thanks, Diane. This is what I wanted to know. The blogger in question has been looking for a solution to this issue too, so I think she'll be receptive to your suggestion.

    Outlook 2010 no longer (?) shrinks large images

    Hi, Diane. Apologies for the delayed response. I'm not sure what you mean by "expected size" but when I opened them in either of a couple of image processing programs, they did not appear unusually large or small. In the e-mail the images do not appear stretched, pixelated, or otherwise...

    Outlook 2010 no longer (?) shrinks large images

    Here's an odd problem with Outlook 2010. It seems to me that the software used to shrink large size/full resolution images down to fit whatever window an e-mail was being displayed in. For the past six months or so, it hasn't, so when a blogger I follow uses images in her posts, which she does a...

    Outlook 2010 sends to/receives from some Gmail addresses but not others

    Thanks, Diane. I ignored (didn't even see) "smithjames's" "advice" and followed yours. Quick and easy and (for now), things are working again. I've had to do this before so I'm not sure why I had to do it again. Doesn't matter--it's done.

    Outlook 2010 sends to/receives from some Gmail addresses but not others

    I have three Gmail accounts. Outlook works fine with one--I can send and receive emails from it via Outlook--but not the other two. All three are IMAP accounts, the technical settings (ports, TLS/SSL selections, etc.) appear to be identical, but only one is included in the "All Accounts"...
