I'm using Outlook 2007 to connect to my GMail account through IMAP. Unfortunately this creates a flagged item and an task entry for every starred item in GMail.

How to geek shows how to make this work properly (only show each item once) but doesn't show how to stop it altogether?

How can I stop this functionality?

You should try unsubscribing from the Starred and All Mail folders.

Unsubscribe by right clicking on your IMAP folder and select IMAP folders, then click Query and select the two and click Unsubscribe

I learned to use this to filter out downloading Support mails from our company Inbox :P – Ivo Flipse Dec 11 '10 at 14:07
