Gmail mail to Outlook 365 with IMAP RRS feed

  • Question

  • Initially my email is sent and received via a GMail account. On my home PC, I am using Office 365 including Outlook 365 with NO exchange server. I connect my outlook to Gmail with a Imap connection.

     

    The syncing between Gmail and outlook is driving me crazy. I cannot seem to get rid of deleted mail, it just goes to a different folder. If I send something in Outlook, it ends up in the Gmail inbox with a label. Other mail ends up in the "important" folder for no reason.

     

    The outlook PST file is not getting updated since I guess it assumes I no longer need it since everything is replicated on my Gmail account. I want my pst file to be the source of all current mail.

     

    This is overkill way beyond what I need and I would like to get back to the era where my outlook was the master and if I deleted something there it went away. I really don't need all those folders in Gmail.

     

    I tried setting up Pop3 accounts instead and lost all of my mail, so I am hesitant to act.

     

    Help me out of this mail storm.
