Gmail IMAP Slow Or Unresponsive In Outlook 2010

Microsoft Outlook is probably the most used email client across the globe. The reason for that is obvious, as it has multitude of features that can be utilized by users. It is a perfect personal information manager.

Outlook 2010 is one of the latest Outlook editions. If you have used Outlook 2010 with IMAP for your e-mail service with Gmail, you would have noticed how irritatingly slow and unresponsive Outlook 2010 can be at times. This can continue for some time. Fortunately, you need to stay there and do nothing; a few steps can be taken to ensure better quality of service, when using Gmail or Google Apps through Outlook 2010 with IMAP. Here are the methods or procedures you can follow to fix such Outlook problems.

Method 1: Unsubscribe The Gmail All Mail folder

With this option enabled, everything was being synced two times, so it was no wonder the application was running slow. You need to click on the inbox folder of the account you want to unsubscribe All Mail for, and follow the below steps.
  • At first, you need to click on the Folder tab at the top of the Microsoft ribbon in Outlook 2010.
  • Click on the IMAP Folders button in the middle of the ribbon.
  • After that, you can change the middle box from All, and then click Subscribed, then click on query
  • You can highlight at least the All Mail folder, and then click on Unsubscribe. You could do this to as many folders as you want to unsubscribe for.
Method 2: Two copies of all sent mail?

You need to make sure you disable Outlook’s feature which saves mail in the sent folder. The thing here is that Gmail already does this so you get duplicate sent messages. Here are the instruction steps to be followed for resolving this issue.
  • You need to click on the file menu in Outlook 2010.
  • After that, you can click on Account Settings.
  • After that, you need to highlight the account you want to change, and select Change. Then click More Settings in the box that appears.
  • Finally, under the Sent Items tab, you can select Do not save copies of sent items.
