    Default Outlook stopped pulling emails from gmail server


    I am facing a mini crises while travelling overseas...

    I have had Outlook 2013 configured with the old Google Apps for business free edition for many years via IMAP. All of a sudden it has stopped pulling down new emails from the server. If I test the account setting it is successfully connecting to the server and is successfully sending a test message (which I receive on my phone which is not having problems and can see when I login to gmail directly).

    Outlook is endlessly trying to synchronise the subscribed folders but nothing is happening.

    I don't want to delete the IMAP account and start again if I can help it as I have years worth of emails to redownload and index etc which will take too long on these internet connections and I need access to these emails while travelling.

    Any suggestions?

    Sorry, ignore this please. Figured out my problem. Had an email with too much MB attachments jamming up the system.

    You can always use the Gmail web page, even if you prefer outlook it gives you a reliable alternative if you have any more problems.
    Myself I only use webmail these days, I don't find clients offer anything extra that I personally have a use for. Plus there's no need to set anything up, you just need to remember your login details.
