Outlook problems (IMAP and attachments)

Two issues keep coming up:

1) IMAP with Gmail is unbelievably slow. If Gmail itself is not to blame, why is it that it takes several minutes to log on and get my headers (I have a manual/minimum size config going to help speed it up) and sometimes more than one try even when I have good signal strength? What if anything can I do?

2) Attachments - say I have a PDF and I open it up with Adobe Reader LE - very cool - but I can't use Outlook to save the specific file anywhere. I tried checking the 'storage card' option but all I end up with is a folder full of Outlook files which have no file association. I had to uncheck that option and delete it, since it was useless. Is there a program function to save message attachments I haven't found? I can't believe MS would overlook that.

Thanks in advance.

Re: Outlook problems (IMAP and attachments)

I use gmail with imap, and it screams fast. I don't download attachments, and I have 20k for each message. I can download the rest if it is an important message

Re: Outlook problems (IMAP and attachments)

I think I may have found the answer to Issue #1--thanks to MaryGladys on this thread:

S-L-O-W GMail

I unchecked the "Sent Items" folder under "Manage Folders". This seems to have sped up things considerably even though it could still be faster. Hopefully it will continue to perform better. I highly recommend you only choose your most essential folders - mine are All Mail, Drafts, Starred and Trash (could probably be even less). I have label folders but don't bother with them, and the general "Inbox" folder is useless to me. HTH.

Try tap and hold on the file to Save As ... works for me on my two accounts.
