Windows 7: Outlook 2007 GMail problem

Outlook 2007 GMail problem

I have 2 gmail accounts in my Outlook Items. One has a spam folder, the other doesn't. When I use the Gmail 1 web app i can see Spam that does not show up in the "Junk" folder in Gmail 1 but is in that web app Spam Folder.
I think I remember deleting from Gmail 1: "All Mail", "Important", "Spam", and "Starred" folders that I find in my Gmail 2 account.
Please advise about how to restore my Spam folder. Don't care about the other ones.
Thanks Robin

Hello Robin

Welcome to Seven Forums

Is this article of any use to you: Gmail Show/Hide Folders on left menu ?

Spam folder

I read that article and it was very helpful. Now I remember where I saw those options to activate various folders.
I did activate the Spam folder and clicked "Show in IMAP"
I restarted Outlook and it didnt show.
I restarted the computer twice and it doesnt show...
Any new suggestions?
Should I delete the account from Outlook and add it again?

You could try combining your accounts. N.B. I have never done this with my 2 Gmail accounts but did combine one with AOL.

Try starting Outlook with a command=line switch, to reset missing folders back to their default locations:
outlook /resetfolders

You can do this from a Run command box (press Win key + R)

Thank you all for the help. Another laptop restart did the trick. Now i can see all the spam one could possibly desire. Hahaha.
The notion of combining two accounts is intriguing. I don't recall any "button" or "option" that offers such a thing... but that is the cool thing about Outlook: My AOL and my wife's AOL and two Gmails are right there... collapsed. I can open any at will.
I have benefited from this forum before when (before joining) my Outlook pst file grew to gargantuan size. Someone offered the ability to write a simple code that increased my default size from 20GB to whatever GB size I wanted. Unfortunately, there was no warning that my pst file was at the edge of the digital cliff.
Thank you to the readers and problem solvers in this forum!
