Our internet WiFi has been out of action now for about a month I am at a friends today catching up on emails and things and thought I would let you all know I havent forgotten you!
We have had numerous engineers in and out of the house looking at cabling and looking at the phone exchange and we have bought a new router and open reach are with us again today.

In the meantime I have taken hundreds of photos

Looking forward to more from you, Sarah, including some of your wonderful photos.

Isn't IT wonderful, Sarah???

Am sitting here wondering how I get my new gmail email account to "talk" to my Outlook accounts, via IMAP. According to documents looked up on the internet that's a doddle... So why am I still struggling?

"Am sitting here wondering how I get my new gmail email account to "talk" to my Outlook accounts, via IMAP. According to documents looked up on the internet that's a doddle... So why am I still struggling?"

First thing to check, have you successfully created a gmail a/c, can you send and receive webwise - www.gmail.com ?

If so try >>>THIS<<<

Personally I would ditch outlook and use >>>THUNDERBIRD<<< instead.

Thanks Nitram. I did read the Geek article and have tried to follow it; I'll have another go with your encouragement! I'll also investigate THUNDERBIRD.

If you install Thunderbird and fire it up it will say something like do you want a new email a/c or do you want to use an existing one, you choose the latter.

You then enter in email address and password and it says something like found IMAP (or POP) a/c and should download everything.

You can add extra existing, or new, a/cs later if you want to.

If you get a folder 'all mail' in gmail post back and I'll tell you how to sort it out.
Gmail is strange, it does not have separate folders for inbox, sent,...it just has one folder called allmail and then puts a marker against each mail saying which box it is to show in.

It's all controlled under settings|labels in gmail if you want to be adventurous, a common problem is with people deleting emails to the deleted folder and then not emptying the folder. The deleted folder is stored in allmail and if allmail is ticked to show in the client (eg Thunderbird) it can lead to hundreds or thousands of email being shown in the client.
