Windows 7: Outlook 2010 imap too slow

13 Apr 2012   #11

Thanks for that suggestion.

Unfortunately I tried it, but I have a large volume of emails and am frequently moving them into dedicated folders. Being offline does not allow emails to be moved between folders, unless each of my 100+ folders were to be updated / synchronized, and would then cause other problems.

It's staggering that MS has worsened such a problem rather than improving it when they released 2010. My guess is that they are trying to encourage people not to use IMAP with Outlook, rather MAPI for WLM and Exchange....and yet IMAP works just great on Windows Live Mail!

The "funny" thing is that I must use IMAP with Outlook for my Office 365 email account rather than the Exchange connection, because that just gives me some other problems with calendaring / scheduling default locations that cannot be fully resolved.

I decided to now revert back to Outlook / Office 2003 from 2010. It was a painful process that took me 2 days to figure out all the problems. But now it is perfect. IMAP is rapid, Connector works well, and overall Outlook 2003 is much slicker than 2010. I can work more quickly in Office 2003, it's easier to configure, text is more dense, more productive for experienced users, no wide open empty spaces and massive ribbons, etc.
