Gmail/WLM duplicate emails

Postby dilwyn » Tue May 23, 2017 8:46 pm

Took a while to find the full answer as to why I have been getting duplicate copies of gmail emails in Windows Live Mail, so I thought I'd post details here to help anyone else in the same situation.

So much "advice" out there is actually wrong - this came from Micro$oft itself and does seem to work.

Go to the Labels tab in your settings and UNCHECK the Starred, Important, and All Mail labels (on the right in the picture) so that they do not show up for IMAP. Finally, go to your Windows Live Mail and right click on your Gmail account and select Download All Folders. This will re-sync your folders and the duplicate emails will disappear.

This is useful, but I think it should be in the off-topic section ;)
