I added a Gmail account to outlook.for some reason when i do "send/receive" its send receive on 2 previous accounts, on the new account its only "sending".

is see like this:

account 1 sending. 
account 1 receiving.  
account 2 sending. 
account 2 receiving.    
account 3 sending.   

in the settings its set correct to do send and receive. what could be the reason that outlook "skips" receiving mail from the 3rd account?


  • Ok. May be it is not showing (or may be i'm wrong). Can you send a test email from account 3 to account 3 itself - and see if this works? – Prasanna Aug 23 '14 at 12:52
  • its sent, but not received. (i know that its sent because o look in gmail) – BenB Aug 23 '14 at 13:06
  • is urs a POP or IMAP type? – Prasanna Aug 23 '14 at 13:10
  • IMAP. in the end it works. my mistake was that the wrong folder was set in "favorites". so i guess in imap it dosent show "receiving". its just does it. – BenB Aug 23 '14 at 13:15
