Gmail Outlook IMAP Problems

| February 23, 2015

gmail synching to outlookCall That Girl supports all Gmail, Google Apps and Outlook issues. I get calls in weekly about people having issues with their Outlook synching with their Google browser (not all folders match up) or synching issues in general. I can help fix those problems for you!

I do not do Google Apps migrations, only support for Outlook.

Typical Gmail/Outlook problems

  • Too much email. Clients sometimes have on the server 100,000 emails or more.
  • Many times Outlook will stop sending/receiving until mail is moved off the server.
  • Synchronizing certain folders does not stop
  • Email folders not in order
  • Outlook is very slow
  • Search does not work
  • Outlook and Gmail and iPhone does not synch anymore
  • You might need synching setup with your iPhone
  • Calendar synching does not work anymore and it used to
  • Gmail in Outlook has filters on it and email does not show up
  • There is no email in the inbox

Comcast IMAP folders not matching with Outlook

| February 21, 2015

If you are out on Google trying to figure out why your Comcast IMAP folders in Outlook are not matching up (Outlook vs the browser or Outlook vs Outlook on 2 computers), I have an explanation and this might also help others not on Comcast with IMAP folder synching issues.

IMAP is an email system that holds a copy of your inbox and all folders on their server and it should download and synchronize between phones and other computers. It’s like a poor man’s exchange server without the calendar and contacts.

  • If your IMAP is not matching up and you are on Comcast, you can try this trick. Try cleaning up the folders on the server (browsers) and then creating a new email account in your Outlook. This should bring down a fresh IMAP copy.
  • If your IMAP is not matching up and you are on a paid server like GoDaddy, try the above trick and if that fails, then call GoDaddy or whoever is your provider and ask them to do a mailbox rebuild. It basically fixes corrupted IMAP. If your hosting company says they will not do that, then ask for a supervisor because this can be done.

FIX: The drive that contains your data file is out of disk space

| February 21, 2015

Microsoft Outlook error: the drive that contains your data file is out of disk space. Empty the deleted items folder or create space on the drive by removing some of your files. Access is denied. Verify the disk is not full or write-protected and that the file is not being used.

the drive that contains your data file is out of disk space

Just got a call about this error yesterday, as an Outlook Expert, I never know what type of Outlook call or fix is going to come my way! My Client was having issues sending an email, they got the error above. For this fix though, the hard drives were fine and not out of space. The PST files were not that large…So I did some troubleshooting and tested a new profile and it worked.

Simple fix, try a new profile. Do not delete the old one! You might need to reference back for data and it’s easier to export out.

If you need help with this, feel free to call me or fill out this form. Thanks!!

Sending’ reported error (0x80040201) : ‘Unknown Error 0x80040201′

| February 18, 2015

If you are a Gmail user that also uses Outlook to manage your email, then you may have seen this error

Sending’ reported error (0x80040201) : ‘Unknown Error 0x80040201′

(*or one like it) during a send/receive. It will either pop up or show up at the bottom of your Outlook.

As an Outlook Expert, I get calls about this error or one like it often. In a nutshell, your connection from Gmail to Outlook is broken (*even though it still might be working) and it’s saying “fix me!”.

So why are you getting it? Why is it broken? How did it break?

Could be a few reasons and I will explain.

If you setup your Gmail in Outlook many years ago, chances are that your email is not in synch with Gmail and you are hoarding 1000’s of emails (probably hiding in the All Mail or Important folders) and maybe went over the size limit or it’s just too much for Outlook to handle synching. What I do is create the client a test profile in Outlook and then get a fresh IMAP download (if the current Outlook is setup with IMAP as it probably is) and then let Outlook download a fresh IMAP copy. If I’m right and this is usually the case, you will see tons of email come down and it will show as “caching” or “fetching” and don’t be surprised to see 100,000 emails or more.

You could also need an upgrade to Outlook 2013, this might be necessary.

You  might need to fix your Gmail settings in your Outlook too.

Or it could be a mix of all 3.

Moving on..

After I download all the email to a new profile….then we move into the fun stuff, the sorting and removing email off the Gmail IMAP server. This is the only way to really clean up the Gmail server if you’re using Outlook, download it all, the move it (not copy) to another PST file.

I helped 2 clients today with issues like these. 1 client just needed a fresh IMAP download, the other unfortunately had over 120,000mails I have to move off the Gmail server.

The final question I will answer is this…why doesn’t Gmail on the browser have problem because the email is on their server, via the browser. It does not download to Outlook, so the problems are rare.

If you want help slaying this dragon, I have done helped clients many times over fixing errors, reworking their Outlook and moving out 100,000’s of thousands of emails off their Gmail to a local PST file.
