Outlook 2013/2016 Imap Folder doesn´t Snyc

Post by billyjp » 2015-12-16 07:55

Hello!

Iam using Hmailserver since Version 4.0. On the Server we have about 20 Accounts with IMAP and Public Folders(about 10.000 Folders).

Since Outlook have the Version 2013 sometimes new added folders under Public doesn´t appear on other computers?

A work around is to create the same folder (with the exact name and position) on the other computer in outlook. After a folder change the emails appear.
But its still a problem because i need the folders to sync automaticly.


Do anybody have a solution for that?


PS: By the way i use Outlook 2016 in the company and Thunderbird at home (both are connected with the same IMAP Account).

Don't use Outlook 2013 for IMAP

This is a VERY COMMON issue with Outlook 2013 (hopefully it is fixed in Outlook 2016, but I haven't had enough exposure to it yet to be sure), and not just with hMailserver. It is endemic across all MTA servers with a standard IMAP connection
Just 'cause I link to a page and say little else doesn't mean I am not being nice.

Many using Outlook usually use them with Exchange servers. Occasionally others use them with Hmailserver and there are known problems with outlook.

Many (well, I for sure) recommend Thunderbird with the additional addons 'minimize to tray revived 1.1.2.1' and 'Disable DragandDrop (Thunderbird 2.1.0' (this gives the users the same similar function of Outlook by preventing them dragging Folders around.) This is what I have our users on.

Outlook 2013 has many problems with hMailServer IMAP.
My only solution is to use microsoft exchange. :-(
Who usually pays a outlook license does not want to use thunderbird.
