Outlook setup seems to be fine. I've used the gmail guide. However whenever I try to access my imap folder in Outlook, I get a message (0X800CCC0E) telling me the server can't be accessed and imap.googlemail.com is in offline mode.

Can anyone help me fix it?

I've seen the imap setup directions for gmail also, but it seems as though gmail doesn't actually have the site set up to run for imap. The gmail page where you are supposed to configure the mail program for imap doesn't have the imap option present, only pop. This, I suspect, is why you get the cannot find server error.

Thanks, Orange Blossom, but the current version of GMail does have an IMAP option, just below the pop setup option.

Where do you see that option? When I go to the settings page, the tab says Forwarding and Pop. There is no IMAP option that I see on that page. I can get to the directions for setting IMAP up by going through the What's New link to the left in the help center, but it is the enabling feature on gmail's end that I cannot do because of that missing option.

There is a discussion here: http://groups.google.com/group/Gmail-POP-a...e1a65ada5e01abd about gmail and IMAP.

Ah-ha. The IMAP function can only be seen in the standard view, not in the HTML only view. How very frustrating.

I see that they have different directions for different versions of Outlook. Did you double-check to see if you used the set for the version you have?

Perhaps the discussion I gave the link for earlier might provide you with a solution. I use Thunderbird, so at this point I'm out of ideas.
