Outlook 2010, Gmail and Mailwasher

  SURVEY 31 Dec 11

For some reason Malwasher is retaining gmail emails that have been succesfully downloaded to Outlook 2010. When I used Windows Live Mail (and previous to that Outlook Express) once downloaded, mailwasher would remove them from its screen when next checking emails. I cannot find anywhere in Outlook 2010's Account settings where one can uncheck the usual box option to retain emails on the server. Can anyone help? This is driving me nuts!

I am also experiencing a problem with Outlook never-endingly stating that it is 'synchronising subscribed folders' with this particular gmail account. Can the two problems be linked?. I had seen somewhere a suggestion to disable the firewall and also incresae the time-outs on mail - have tried both without improvement.

For anyone else having these problems. I sorted mine as follows. To have Mailwasher remove downloaded emails, the Outlook email account must be set as a POP3 account rather than IMAP. Regarding the continual syncing, initially the first sync can take some time particularly if you have a lot of emails; I couldn't believe how long it aws taking.
