Windows 7: Outlook 2010 hung on synchronizing folders - need help

Outlook 2010 hung on synchronizing folders - need help

Hi all.
I've just upgraded from office 2007 to 2010. Outlook 2010 imported my accounts and settings.

I have 3 Gmail accounts set up in outlook. I use IMAP on all of them.
My computer is running for 24 hours and it still says it synchronizing folders.



The image you see is after a restart I made so the time is in minutes.

I've deleted the account settings and add them back again and it still does that.

Is it a bug?

I had that issue with gmail and the folder synchronisation issue as well.

Unfortunately my lazy solution was just to remove the gmail accounts from outlook - I had zero inclination in trying to discover the cause

Basically, you're not alone but I can offer no help...

Nice to know I'm not alone
I think it's an IMAP issue rather than Gmail.
It doesn't seem to disturb the send/receive function though

Thanks mate, that seems to work

For future reference:

In my case Outlook 2010 x64 + Win7 ultimate x6, was always sync the Gmail account (IMAP).

The solutions was (options > advanced > send & receive > Edit):
1) only sync in-box
2) only load title


Now Outlook starts synchronization and ends, and the best part... it alerts me about new mails.
