Microsoft outllook updating inbox
Unfortunately, it is not possible to manually map these special folders in Outlook to the special folders on the server in case Outlook fails to do this automatically.
To solve this, rename the folders on the IMAP servers to match the language of your installed version of Outlook.
It looks like the recent updates for Outlook completely broke my IMAP account in Outlook 2013.
For instance, the Inbox folder stays empty with the message “We didn’t find anything to show here”. In other folders, some e-mails can’t be moved or deleted or changes I make in Outlook do not sync to the server.
Once you’ve correctly set the root folder path for your IMAP mailbox, you may be missing some subfolders or find that folders aren’t synching.
To solve this, go back to the Folder tab, click on the Outlook Folders button and press the Query button.
If you do not do this, your Inbox could remain empty and other folders might not sync or show up at all and move, copy and delete actions could result in permission errors.
For instance, an English version of Outlook might not correctly map the Sent Items folder to the “Verzonden items” folder located on a Dutch IMAP.This also includes your Calendar and Contacts folder when they are stored within the ost-file of your IMAP account.To prevent this, you can change your configuration of Outlook 2013 in such a way that it behaves like Outlook 2010 and previous where the Calendar and Contacts folder were stored in a separate pst-file and thus fully recoverable.See: Uninstalling Outlook or Office updatesand: Uninstall Office 365 Click-To-Run Updates Important!Be aware that you will be uninstalling a security update, so only use it as a last resort and post in the Outlook Forum for additional help or contact Microsoft Support in your country via email or by phone.
