Outlook 2010 Saga with IMAP, Can I use Office 2010 and

Q: Outlook 2010 Saga with IMAP, Can I use Office 2010 and

Hi all
Having totally WIPED office 2010 from my system and re-installed again the problem I had with the "Purge" folder not appearing now is SOLVED.

However you still don't get a line through the deleted items -- but they are in Trash folder now.

This is BETTER but still NOT WHAT IS NEEDED -- as another computer with Outlook 2007 doesn't get the "Non purged" items in the inbox which it should do.

IMAP should effectively leave items in the Inbox until purged -- otherwise I might as well go back to POP3 - more fiddly to manage whern you leave stuff on the server but it works.

What I'm resigned to doing now is to use the REST of the office 2010 suite (EXCEL etc) which is really good but stick with Outlook 2007 for email.


Preferred Solution: Outlook 2010 Saga with IMAP, Can I use Office 2010 and

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Outlook 2010 Saga with IMAP, Can I use Office 2010 and

I do like the way 2010 deletes the emails without purge, but I have found that rules randomly fail and some mail goes awol for a while when switching between folders (it reappears after a while)

IMO outlook 2003 is still the best (I hated 2007) but I will reserve full judgement until 2010 is out of beta.

I have downloaded Office 2010 Pro Plus from MSDN, got my key after the 1st of May.

In Outlook 2007 SP2 receiving via IMAP from GMAIL worked okay.

Using exactly the same settings in Outlook 2010 I am not able to make a connection to imap.gmail.com, Port 993 using SSL. IMAP is enabled in GMAIL-Control panel, the Account/Password information is correct, sending the test mail via smtp.gmail.com, Port 587 via TLS works fine.

In the Outlook 2010 Beta that connection works as it does in Outlook 2007 SP2.

In Outlook 2010 Final from MSDN there is no chance to connect to the IMAP server - I just got a timeout all the time and had to use POP instead.

This disappoints me, I anticipate more quality coming from Redmont.

Did you have any suggestions what I can do to receive my mail via IMAP, any additional settings, registry hacks etc.?

Event the final Hotmail-Connector 14 does not work as the beta or version 12 in Outlook 2007: All time when synchronizing my mailboxes in Hotmail I receive an error message: Error when synchronizing your Mailbox [email protected]

I did that several time - But without any changes to those warnings. I think I receive all my mail.

I had a problem with Outlook emails hanging up in the outbox and then sending as many as 14 copies of the same message. I was unable to fix this Using the "Repair" function of the upgrade installation disk (created from the downloaded file). I removed Office completely and tried to reload; however, my disk got corrupted and Outlook is no longer available. Is there a way to recover Outlook without having to purchase it separately? I am using Office Professional Plus 2010 Home Use Program. The email that came with the original download from Digital River states to go to the "Account Management Console" to reload; however, this is on a hard copy and the original email with the link is no longer available. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

A:Solved: Outlook 2010 missing from Office Professional Plus 2010

If you downloaded this from Digital River, then you may be able to download it again, contact them and ask.

If you can download the install file again and it works, burn yourself a CD of the downloaded install file.

Also write the keycode on the CD.

I have had a terrible time trying to trace down "not responding" in various programs. About 90% of the time however, it occurs in Outlook 2010 and sometimes in Word 2010. I took down the information from the event viewer after the last time it happened so badly that I had to restart the program because waiting didn't bring it back.
Win 7 Prof, SP1. i7, 930 with 24 gig of 1333 Kingston HyperX ram. Several drives: C SSD Plextor and Office is actually installed on a WD Caviar. Neither drive show errors. Only thing I see is that the Caviar is using Microsoft 2006 driver and I haven't been able to find a newer driver. Happens when SATA is set to AHCI and when it is set to IDE.

Thanks for any help or suggestions you can offer.
BTW, I have run scannow and also have gone through my pst files and archived.

Hi all
Is there anyway to make the Delete function in Outlook 2010 work the same as in Outlook 2007 (and earlier) with IMAP.

In Outlook 2007 delete doesn't actually DELETE the email but just puts a line through the items. Mail is actually deleted when you go to ==>edit===>PURGE.

In Outlook 2010 it deletes the mail straight away (like POP3 defaults).

I prefer the old method as I often use more than one computer for email and need to ensure that I've copied all relevant emails to local folders on the relevant machines before physically deleting email from the server.

Having a line through the items makes it easy to quickly check whether I've "deleted" something I need on another machine.

I can see lots of people usuing corporate email sytems with remote laptops / "roaming machines" coming to grief with this issue.

Hi guys, this is my first post here, I hope I'm posting in the right section and not breaking any rules.
So, here's the deal: at the place I'm working al the emails accounts have been configured as POP back in 2006. They're paying for a domain, etc., now they want to access the mail from their homes, so I have to change the configuration to IMAP.

I'll have to go one by one and edit all the accounts.
My question is about the importing the old (pop) emails they've been saving over the years (few GB for each, but it doesn't matter).

How do I do it? Make en export of all their folders/emails, configuration/etc., delete the POP account, and re-add it as an IMAP one? And after that just import the .pst file I previously saved? That will import all the emails and folders?

Or I'll have to just import the .pst file, and move - with my hands - the emails to the IMAP account?

Also, in the future if needed, I'll be able to make back-ups of the IMAP emails? I'll be able to download them all and store them locally?

Thanks in advance for any input or help!
edit: please, a kind mod, move this to: Browsers & Mail. Thanks!

I am having a few issues with my IMAP work email setup on my home pc. I have my personal POP gmail setup and my work IMAP email setup on Outlook 2010. The gmail account works perfectly but my work email has issues.

I can't send emails. I try to "test account settings" and I get completed on both the IMAP login and the send test email and I get the test email in my inbox but when I actually try to send an email it doesnt go through.

I don't automatically get emails. I have to click on each folder to update emails.

Each time I click a folder to update outlook has to update cache messages.

I also get a send/receive error at the bottom often and when I click this it says outlook cant access the data file. I tried to create a new data file by renaming the old one and letting outlook make a new one but that didnt help.

This slows me down a great deal when I work from home so any guidance would be much appreciated.

I am running Outlook 2010 and have set up 2 separate IMAP accounts. Both are sync'd with my IPhone 4 and on the face of things it all works quite well. However, for some odd reason, when receiving email on one of my IMAP accounts (for the purpose of this questions let's call it account 2) the email arrives in both IMAP Outlook inboxes. If I receive email to account 1 the mail only arrives in the IMAP email inbox for account 1. The annoying result is that many of the emails I receive i.e. those for account 2 are sitting in both inboxes. Does anyone have a solution or advice to help please? This unfortunate issue is replicated on my Iphone 4 (of course).

I just tested changing an IMAP Gmail account to use POP instead, following the instructions found on this site. Just choose your Outlook version from the list. Works flawlessly.

You have to enable POP, of course, from the Gmail settings: Open Gmail web interface, click Settings, and check POP is enabled.

Okay, I have had this problem several times and now I want to know what is causing the problem. In outlook you can add certain folder to your favorites so that they appear like short cuts at the top of the navigation window. But from time to time different imap short cuts don't appear and then I have to close and restart to get the short cuts to reappear.

Any ideas as to why?

Also if you go to the inbox, if that is one in your favorites, and right click it gives you the option to remove from favorites even though it is not displayed. After removing and adding will also show them back at the top. But this is a pain in the back side.

I have a IMAP account on Outlook 2010. When a message is sent from this account and only when the recipient gives a read receipt, this message automatically has a strike-through in my sent items folder, when the read receipt is read by me in my inbox.
Further when the read receipt is deleted by me from my inbox, the original sent item gets deleted from the sent items folder and also gets deleted from the IMAP server.
All other sent items remain intact.

Hi all
I'm now configuring Outlook 2010.

Things like email I've never really paid much attention to since on my machines they always seem to "just work" (from OE==>OUTLOOK) and EVOLUTION on Linux.

However setting up an account on Outlook 2010 I've got a choice between IMAP or POP3. The ISP I'm using supplies both so what should I choose here.

I rang the ISP but got fed up with the endless dreary "Press X for options a.b.c.d", then another load of automated messages with another set of options again before probably being connected to some call centre in India / Bangladesh or wherever .

(If I was ever dictator of the planet my first act on day one would be to OUTLAW all these automated telephone systems and have HUMANS answering them --it would create loads of jobs too ).

So what should I choose. In the past I think POP3 was always the default and never given it a thought but I've seen IMAP mentioned a lot recently.

Anyone ?

Hi all
Not sure I've posted this before but if you use IMAP please note that DELETE in Outlook 2010 now DOES delete mail from the server.

Outlook 2007 and earlier just had a horizontal line through the items you want to delete. You then had to use edit===>Purge to actually delete the mail from the server folder.

So if you don't actually want to DELETE the mail from the folder then be careful.

I like having the line through the items - as I often use another machine such as a laptop and can also select what items I want copied to the "personal" inbox on the laptop before finally purging the mail.

BTW for the most part I'm extremely impressed with Office 2010 beta.

Hope I'm in the right forum. Have two Gmail IMAP email accounts and 4 pop email accounts in one pst file. Has been working fine.

Now pop account emails show up in sent folder as properly sent with time and date sent...they aren't going anywhere. Have sent tests to myself to no avail.

Also emails sent thru Gmail IMAP never make it to any sent folder in Outlook and I get an error message stating that the server will not allow sent emails to be placed in the Outlook sent folder.

If I go on Google and open Gmail, sent emails are in the sent folder.


A:Windows 7 - OUTLOOK 2010 - Gmail IMAP

You'll need to provide exact configuration for each account, just the server stuff, not login or password.

As I understand it, you have two Gmail accounts set up to receive using the IMAP protocol. And you have four accounts using the POP3 protocol. Unfortunately you didn't specify the mail server (Yahoo, AOL, Gmail....) for those accounts.

IMAP does that - you should see the sent mail on Google. I'll check to see if there's and option to also store the sent mail locally (in Outlook). You could help by providing the exact msg that you get and any error codes.

Please also fill in your System Specs (there are lots of HP machines) - see the Easy System Specs in my sig?

Hi all
Note to you guys with IMAP and Outlook 2010.

When you DELETE now it works similar to POP3 -- the delete mail now gets moved to the DELETED folder in the IMAP folder which you then delete via the DELETE option in the menu or right mouse click on the item in the folder view.

On Outlook 2007 the item had a LINE through it which you then deleted via PURGE.

I think I prefer the newer method -- but beware if you run more than one computer as DELETE now really does mean DELETE and the item will appear in the deleted items folder.

If you have one computer with Outlook 2007 and another with Outlook 2010 you won't be able to see or DELETE the items in Outlook 2007 if you deleted them in Outlook 2010.

I don't think it's a real problem -- but just be aware of the differences in how the two releases work. (IMAP only -- POP3 works just like it did before)


A:Outlook 2010 IMAP - Delete is different to 2007

I have just the opposite issue. Outlook 2010 eliminates messages from my list as soon as I delete them (and sends them to the appropriate folder, where I can still find them before purging). Is there any way I can get 2010 to act like 2007 and strikeout the deleted messages until I elect to purge them? None of my attempted manipulations under Account Settings has accomplished this end.

Hi all

I haven't discovered a way yet of switching a POP3 account to IMAP without deleting and re-defining the email account in Outlook 2010.

IMAP is a better way if you access the same email account from multiple machines. If the account was originally defined with POP3 there doesn't seem any mechanism to change it to IMAP without deleting and re-creating the entire account.

This means backing up and restoring all the messages, address books etc before doing this -- a bit of a pain if you have to do this for 50 - 100 users and their email accounts.

Any quick fix or have I missed something.


A:Outlook 2010 cannot change POP3 account to IMAP

You haven't missed anything, as far as I know there is no way to change pop to imap.

A bit of a warning though, in the past when I have switched users from pop to imap and I added the additional IMAP account then moved the stuff from the pop account folders to the IMAP, sometimes email etc just disappears completely despite saying it had copied.

Hi there.
I'm using outlook2010 on two computers. Both have the same IMAP Gmail account set up.
When I'm accessing outlook 2010 on my laptop, I receive new headers but these same headers won't show up in my desktop outlook 2010. Since the same account is set up as IMAP no both computers, shouldn't I see the same inbox?



A:IMAP folders doesn't sync outlook 2010

Yes, you should. I had some trouble with Outlook changing my Port numbers when I would select SSL and TLS Authentication, which is likely your issue. Be sure to check the second computers settings so they are the following:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - requires SSL:imap.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 993 Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - requires TLS:smtp.gmail.com (use authentication)
Use Authentication: Yes
Use STARTTLS: Yes (some clients call this SSL)
Port: 465 or 587 Account Name: your full email address (including @gmail.com) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comEmail Address: your full Gmail email address ([email protected]) Google Apps users, please enter [email protected]_domain.comPassword: your Gmail password


I think MS is still working some kinks out with the IMAP intergration so if all else fails you can switch to SMTP in the interim depending on your OS.

I have used POP3 for all my mail on my outlook client since I first had email. With this method my multiple email accounts can be seen in a combined inbox on my windows pc.
I use IMAP to access the same accounts on my iPhone and iPad, so that I can get mail whilst travelling etc..

Up until very recently if I read an email on my IMAP accounts via my iPhone or my iPad the message would still download to my pop3 accounts on my windows client (I use my pc as the oracle and the apple products as tools). Now it appears that as soon as I read the message in IMAP the POP3 download no longer downloads the message?
I've tried marking "read" messages in the IMAP inbox "unread" in the hope that the POP3 access will download the message, this did not work. I'm now wondering what has changed with GMAIL (they altered their mail system recently), such that POP3 does not download all inbox messages that have not been downloaded to POP3 before?

If I try and search for this on the web, all I get is info about comparisons of IMAP and POP, which I understand.

If any one has any ideas that would be a great help.



A:Outlook 2010 and POP3 with IMAP from iPad Issue

Is it possible that when you read your emails on one of your programs that it is not leaving a copy on the GMail server. In other words once the email has been downloaded it is deleted from the server.
I use Outlook in Office 2013 & copies of emails are left on the server for 14 days, but this can be set to a period that suits you.
I do not use Gmail so I can't speak for it. Perhaps checking your Gmail server to see if you can reset the period of time copies of emails are left on their server.

Hy guys, my first post here,
I was wondering, is there any way to optimize start-up performance of Outlook on Windows 7? Ok, I've tested quite bit with it.
I'm dual booting Win7 and XP, on my notebook, HP6830s.
On first configuration, XP SP3, Outlook 2010, Kaspersky KAV 6.0, start-up time of my e-mail account is 10sec. I use IMAP protocol, and have e-mail server locally. Thats quite good.
On other hand, I have win7, Outlook 2010, Kaspersky KAV 6.0. Same account, same protocol, it takes about 50sec. Why is that?

I've downgraded it to 2007, on both hands, but the start-up times were same.The POP protocol seems fine. But I have to use IMAP protocol.

Why is this? Why Windows 7 is slowing down my Outlook start-up? Indexing? Add-ins? I've turned it off already, both of them, every add-in and indexing e-mails...

I have 3 computers setup to send and receive IMAP/SMTP mail from my domain server using Outlook 2010, 2 with Win 7 and one with XP.
Everything was working up to 10 days ago, 19th Jan was the last email I received normally. Since then I cannot get the 2 Win 7 machines to receive my mail. The XP machine still works fine. The emails are on the server obviously or XP would not fetch them and I can see them in the web mail client. Sending test emails from the Win 7 machines is not a problem.
I have checked the account settings between XP and Win 7 and as expected they are identical. Last Windows Updates were installed on 13/Jan/2012 and the Win 7 machines were working after then.
Appears something else in Win 7 is at fault.
Thanks for any suggestions.

Hi guys, as I am using both a laptop and tablet to check email I have set up both devices with imap accounts.

The issue is that I don't want to lose all my old folders and email from the old pop3 account and I can't find a way to move or copy them to the newly created account on my laptop so I'd like to leave the old account, inactive, in Outlook.

Also, I don't want to get messages into two different folders.

Is there a way to disable the old pop3 account without removing it?

I have tried deleting the password so it won't send/receive from that account but all I get is the constant "enter password" box which is naturally not an ideal state of affairs.

I'd appreciate any advice users can offer.

Thanks in advance,

PS it probably isn't relevant but FYI the tablet is a Motorola Xoom Android and the laptop is an Asus running Win 7 Home Premium and Outlook 2010 as in the subject line.

PS it probably isn't relevant but FYI the tablet is a Motorola Xoom Android and the laptop is an Asus running Win 7 Home Premium and Outlook 2010 as in the subject line.

you can simply move the emails of your pop account by going to "edit" on the top left corner and "select all" you'll see that all your emails are selected, then right click and select "move to folder" and move it to your IMAP mails location. and doing this may allow you to remove the pop3 account.

either way, let us know what you get.

Hi there
I'm trying to play around with SKYPE's IM (Instant messaging) on the desktop.

On the SKYPE panel at Import contacts from Outlook it only shows the "Stinking Facebook junk" - however in all the software blurb in the documentation Outlook 2010 support Instant messaging -- just sign in to your IM program when you pop up the contact.

Anybody got SKYPE IM to work with Outlook 2010 (Private users -- at work I'd use LYNC which works flawlessly).

(Any other FREE messaging program that will work with outlook)

Recently upgraded Outlook 2007 to 2010 on a Win7 PC to address a bug in Outlook '07 whereby any deleted messages magically reappeared after 5 seconds. All other IMAP synchronization worked fine. That problem thankfully no longer occurs with the new Outlook '10 version.

However, a new problem now happens consistently in Outlook 2010 that I've been unable to resolve. When sending a new message, the message is delivered to the recipient normally, but there is absolutely NO copy of it anywhere to be found...either in Outlook or on the IMAP server. It just disappears. What DOES show in the "Sent Items" IMAP folder are all messages sent from two other devices (another PC running Outlook 2003 and a smart phone) that are correctly syncing with IMAP. I've checked all Outlook settings, even experimented with changing the "Send" options in IMAP settings, all to no avail.

Any ideas of what to check/change next? If I need to provide more info please advise.

Thanks much.

Hi there,

like the subject says. Since I've been using my iPhone 4 with unified inbox for quite a while now, it is a bit annoying to keep switching between IMAP inboxes in outlook 2010. POP3 accounts are fine, all mails can go to one favorite inbox, but IMAP accounts work differently, by the look of it. The same was in outlook 2007, but I was wondering if there was a plug-in or extension of some kind that enables to use just one inbox?

You help will be greatly appreciated.

Outlook 2010, Win7, email account: outlook.com (1 of 2 accounts)

Error code 0x800CCCDD
Protocol: IMAP
Server: imap-mail.outlook.com
Port: 993

Outlook 2010 had 2 functioning email accounts prior to the MS required remove/add of an Outlook.com account due to MS' server change. I used the recommended, automatic add (after the remove) for the Outlook.com account. Outlook.com is now an Exchange account. During the add, there was a message indicating the Exchange account would 'take over', and so it did. Unilaterally it took over the default position--oddly, this despite mail accounts indicating the second (a MAPI account) email account was the default. This was unacceptable.

So I proceeded with MS' second option--a manual add with Outlook.com being an IMAP account not Exchange. This sort of worked. The second account is back again as the default however Outlook.com is persistently and erratically not connecting or losing connection per the above error.

The only fix I've found googling was to uncheck Outlook's mail options to do any kind of automatic send or receive. That seemed to work for a while but the errors are back--just not as frequent.

This error is not present when doing the required Outlook.com remove/add with Outlook 2007 with the same second account that's the default.

Any suggestions?

A:Outlook 2010 error: 0x800CCCDD--IMAP server closed connection

You should be able to set which email account you want as the default one. In Outlook 2013 you can do this by selecting File then Account Settings & on the window that opens you can see which one is the default email account.

On the same line as where there are options for New, Repair, Change there is one to Set as Default. This will be greyed out for the Default Account, but if you click on the other account you will be able to set that as the default account.

I just downloaded Outlook hotmail connector from the official download website, and installed it to try, and explored it , it was working fine!.

After that I deleted the account and reconstructed it using pop3 conf., but didn't like the idea of no status update reflect to the webmail ,

Finally decided to use the IMAP Configuration to have the features of the connector which I tried First,

I deleted the pop3 account to return back to the connector configuration, the config. done successfully, but when outlook start it fail to pass the receive process , and produce the following errors:
x8004102A , x80041050

after restarting the outlook and trying again send/receive, the receive process comes to no end. until errors appear or cancelling it.

I just noticed that it restored the contacts, drafts and the folder structure on of my account from the first ever imap account which I created ( and deleted ) at the beginning .

By the way I deleted the first imap account from outlook and from the C:\Users\Xuser\AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook ,,,,

what to do else ????

It seems that there may be a problem in Office 2010. I just installed it to the standard MS default/recommended settings .........all looked good...used Word great..until I use Excel and each time I try to use excel it sets off an 'Office Configuration' screen which I can not stop..it take a few minutes and then loads OK. I tried to launch it from the installed prgrams icon but there is no files on 'start in' etc..I tied to create a shortcut to the desktop from the excel.exe file and get the same reconfigure issue..it seem that somehow I don't have either permissions or I have a corrupt install..all Office suite works eventually Anyone know how to fix it..please?

A:Office 2010 Pro Plus Win7 x 64 Excel reconfigures Office 2010

Have you ever had a previous version of Office on this copy of win7?

Do you have any component of a previous office suite installed still

I have seen this in the past with Viso that was due to remnents of an earlier trial remaining on disk and in the registry.

I also found that if I cancelled the configuration screen the Viso would load without problems without the need to wait for completion.

There are some rather involved solution stems on Microsoft website - cannot find them at the present but will try to look for them.

The problem was that I could never get the removal steps to actually cure the issue and I put up with the error until my next re-install of Win7, which was not to long in the case of that system

I don't know if maybe I'm the only one who runs into this problem or if it happens to a lot of people, but it seems to come up a lot for me.

I have had this issue on many computers but right now I am setting up an old Dell Latitude E5510 for an employee and I have reformatted, installed all drivers, and programs needed. I installed Office 2007, because this employee won't really be using the computer much.

I start up Windows Updates today and it has me downloading 3 updates for Windows 2010. This computer had Office 2010 on it before it was reformatted. Is it still sensing Office 2010 buried somewhere in the files and that's why it's asking me to install updates for it? Does Office 2007 use updates that are also made for 2010(and are only labled 2010)? Anyone have any ideas? I don't believe it's hurting anything, but I am curious!

i am mail merging (word 2010 and excel 2010 database).

when i choose to send the messages as HTML, all is good.

when i choose to send text or attachment - i get this security warning. even after pressing "allow" - nothing happens. (nothing = no trace of messages in outbox and no mail sent)

i know that: "If you choose a format other than HTML, an Outlook message may inform you that a program is trying to access e-mail addresses and send e-mail. This message is a security measure designed to protect against viruses that replicate through e-mail. To continue with the merge, select the Allow access for check box in the security warning dialog box, and then select the amount of time that you need to complete the merge. Click Yes. If you are prompted again, continue to click Yes until the merge is complete."

My beta expired so I uninstalled the beta. I restarted and tried to install the trial but I get this error.

Error 25004. The product key you entered cannot be used on this machine. This is most likely due to previous Office 2010 trials being installed. (System error: -1073418160)

Problem is the bottom entry is not deleteable. If I try to delete it or a subfolder or the key I get

Can this be done?

A week ago, I bought a new CD of MS Office Home and Student 2010. Before I did that, I asked my wife, who has occasionally used Access 2003, "do you still need a database program?". I SWEAR she said "no I don't use it any more". The FIRST time she sat down to use MS Office 2010 she asked me "where's the database program?" aarrrrrrrrrrrrggggggggggggghhhhhhhhhhh....

So is it possible for me to buy a way to upgrade the version I have now, or must I buy a completely new stand alone CD for just Access 2010?

A:Adding MS Access 2010 to my MS Office Home and Student 2010

I have NOT seen any upgrade to a higher package.

I think the only way is to buy the stand alone package.

Now that you know, you will be buying the Pro version when you upgrade to 2013!

I have recently created an additional email address in Outlook 2010 and since then have been intermittently getting a pop-up window as soon as I start Outlook 2010 which prevents me doing anything and places a red X on the email icon in the bottom task bar.

The pop-up window says "Your IMAP server closed the connection" and gives me "OK" and "Details" tabs.

If I click OK it gives me the "No - you can't do that" tone. If I click Details I get;

Account: (email address)

Internal login failure. Refer to server log for more information.
Protocol: IMAP
Server: mail.aanet.com.au
Port: 143
Error Code: 0x800CCCDD

I then can't do anything to exit from the pop-up window or Outlook 2010 except to use Task Manager to stop OUTLOOK.EXE*32.

Any ideas on how I can prevent this from occurring?

I'm running Windows 7 64 bit and have only basic computer skills.
