Adventures in F^&king MS Outlook 2003

One of the most annoying things about Microsoft Outlook 2003 is that when you add an IMAP mailbox all that it does when you click "Send & Recieve" is to grab the headers for that folder instead of the full messages. If you are a normal human being and not an MS-Robot then this is more than marginally perturbing...

To remedy the situation,

I. Navigate to the Tools menu, point to Send/Receive, point to Send/Recieve Settings, and then click Define Send/Recieve Groups.

II. Click the group with your IMAP account and then click on Edit.

III. You should see something that says "Accounts" - under that click on your IMAP account.

IV. There will be a list of the folders in the IMAP directory, click on the plus sign next to your account and it should expand to show all of your folders, tick the box next to "Inbox" and any other folders you want it to D/L {download} full messages for and select Download complete item including attachments.
