Outlook imap folders not updating

Recently when I looked at my email, which I do all the time when I'm home (I leave my computer on all the time unless I have to reboot for some reason), I realised that some of my folders under the Inbox were missing.I can still see them on the server (in webmail) so I know they are there somewhere! If you are unable to access your folders and other email-items in outlook 2010, this means that your PST get corrupted and so becomes inaccessible, firstly you need to take help of repair tool which is the inbuilt repair tool provided by Microsoft.As you may noticed, Microsoft Outlook tends to respond slower to your commands, as time goes by over your Outlook installation.We use to compare Microsoft Outlook with Microsoft Windows: they both needs constant tweaking and optimization, unless you are willing to reformat your disk and to reinstall Windows.But with a pst-file containing important information, it's essential that it's included in any users regular backup scheme.Then, if info is missing due to some corruption, it can easily be retrieved from the uncorrupted backup.

If this preference is available for your email service and you select it, Outlook automatically updates your IMAP folders continuously.

The following table provides information and tips for entering advanced IMAP settings.
