Default Weird Gmail Problem

Please Login to Remove!

I have using Gmail for the last 3-4 months and I love it. Over the last couple of days I've been receiving my Gmail on my Blackberry as expected. Problem is that when I download my Gmail messages into Outlook, not all of them download. They're still their at www.gmail.com but Outlook is not downloading them. I just noticed this problem. FYI, I'm BIS.

Is anyone else experiencing what I'm experiencing? Any resolutions?

I'm not an Outlack user, but it *sounds* like maybe Outlook isn't downloading messages that have the "Seen" flag (aka Read status) maybe? Can you determine any pattern that's common to the emails which are not downloading into your Outlook?

I'm assuming you have POP enabled on your GMail account, and are using POP3 via Outlook to suck them down off the server, yes? Usually with most email clients using POP3, there's an option choice like:

[ ] Download only New messages
[ ] Download ALL messages

Any chance your Outlook settings got changed from ALL to New?

The current pattern that I've observed is if the messages get grouped together. For example if their are multiple replies to with the same subject. When this happens and I have yet to download the messages to my Outlook, only the latest message is downloaded.

As far as I can tell there is no option in Outlook to differentiate between download new messages and downloading all messages.
