    Deleted email from gmail keeps re-appearing (Outlook 2010)


    Hi there
    Outlook 2010 and using gmail -- I delete email from inbox -- says OK email gets deleted --then a few seconds later the Email inbox gets re-filled again.

    I just can't seem to permanently delete emails.

    "Normal ISP" accounts or exchange corporate email accounts seem to work fine .

    Anybody got a solution for this -- I've got nearly 1100 wretched emails in the inbox that I can't get rid of

    Even moving then to a LOCAL inbox and delete doesn't cure the problem. I'm using IMAP service.

    Cheers

    Hi there
    Found it --
    Bad case of "RTFM" (or Not doing it). You need to set Auto Expunge OFF and then choose delete from server.

    Otherwise system leaves archive for 30 days or until server runs next update.

    Cheers
