I have downloaded Office 2010 Pro Plus from MSDN, got my key after the 1st of May.
In Outlook 2007 SP2 receiving via IMAP from GMAIL worked okay.
Using exactly the same settings in Outlook 2010 I am not able to make a connection to imap.gmail.com, Port 993 using SSL. IMAP is enabled in GMAIL-Control panel, the Account/Password information is correct, sending the test mail via smtp.gmail.com, Port 587 via TLS works fine.
In the Outlook 2010 Beta that connection works as it does in Outlook 2007 SP2.
In Outlook 2010 Final from MSDN there is no chance to connect to the IMAP server - I just got a timeout all the time and had to use POP instead.
This disappoints me, I anticipate more quality coming from Redmont.
Did you have any suggestions what I can do to receive my mail via IMAP, any additional settings, registry hacks etc.?
Event the final Hotmail-Connector 14 does not work as the beta or version 12 in Outlook 2007: All time when synchronizing my mailboxes in Hotmail I receive an error message: Error when synchronizing your Mailbox firstname.lastname@example.org
Check whether your account is configured correctly by checking your mail in the browser.
I did that several time - But without any changes to those warnings. I think I receive all my mail.
After all, I am disappointed
Thanks for your comments, different experiences
Sincerly yours Oblomow
P.S.: I had to change to the german Office 2010 Pro Plus Package since the is no German spell checker included in the US version
