Outlook updating inbox long time

Note: You The user could have a copy of Outlook on a desktop and another in a notebook, with the former set for POP access (in order to store everything locally) and the latter set for IMAP (so that mail received on-the-go can be examined non-destructively).

If anyone in your user base is using a mix of Gmail and Exchange, and using Outlook as an interface to both, you should know how the two can be configured if you’re ever called in to fix anything.

It’s also possible you will be asked to set up this type of arrangement for less technically-savvy users and even those high enough on the totem pole to demand it.

Gmail lets you connect a mail client -- such as Outlook -- via one of two mechanisms: POP and/or IMAP.

If it’s a local storage management issue, the size of the PST file in question will not be a problem, since it’s just a local cache for any messages open in the current session.

You can specify which message store to use when you’re first setting up the Gmail POP account.
