I have a client that can not get new email in Outlook 2013 unless he changes his folder to a different folder and then back to the Inbox. This will cause Outlook to perform a sync. I have tried to create a new send and receive group. I have also s…Continue reading
How do I turn off (disable) “IDLE” for my IMAP email accounts in Outlook 2010 (SP2 MSO (14.0.7015.1000)?
I can find how to do this with every other email application except for MS Outlook.
I want the advantages of synchronization and emails remaining on the server that IMAP provides (and I use “idle” in my email notifier) but in the case of Outlook 2010 I do not want email “pushed” to my inbox but would rather only receive them when I request
“new” mail. Therefore I would like to disable IDLE for my IMAP accounts in Outlook which can be done with every other email application that I know of. If I can disable the “IDLE” function for IMAP accounts then the emails would not arrive until I requested
to receive them. (Note: in my case since I do not leave Outlook running, the ability to disable “idle” would solve the issue regarding the desktop “alert” failing to work in Outlook regarding IMAP emails that have otherwise already been “pushed” to the inbox
as I prefer to request “new” mail)
The only thing I’ve been able to find after literally days of searching the web was below but this is wrong because
this does not disable “IDLE” for Outlook 2010 as I still get emails “pushed” to my inbox.
Microsoft Outlook 2010:
Step 1: Send/Receive (tab) > Send/Receive Groups > Define Send/Receive Groups.
Step 2: For each Group, Uncheck, Schedule an automatic send/receive every x minutes.
Step 3: Click Close button.
I have all the latest updates applied to my Outlook 2010.
PLEASE HELP anyone and thanks in advance.Continue reading
