Outlook Download All Emails Every Time: Best Practices and Common Mistakes

Plainly, it is trying to help, but the program can become meddlesome. After checking your hard disk to verify how much space is left, it automatically adjusts the time limit that determines how many of your emails are retained locally. The more disk space is available, the more months of emails are downloaded. The calculation is made according to the following formula:

outlook download all emails every time


If you wish to see all your emails in a certain folder at a glance, you can log into your account via the web app for Outlook. That takes you to the Microsoft Exchange Server interface for your account, and you can see everything stored there.

Only choose the All option if there is enough storage. Your settings should match the amount of space on your disk. If you choose the option to download all emails to a disk with limited space, problems are inevitable. We recommend that you delete all unwanted items from your storage first to free up more space.

This problem occurs because a background synchronization took place at the same time, or just after the Deleted Items folder was emptied. This is an issue with the order in which Outlook carries out the deletion from the server and the downloading of messages.

Since Tuesday the following has been happening.Log on.ALL the emails in ALL my accounts were downloading.Every time i sent and recieved,Which at over 5000 a time was a pain.All my Accounts are pop3 with leave a copy on the server selected.I have done the scanpst.exe which said there were errors, and were fixedNo joy, all emails re downloaded.

If you need to free up some space in your Outlook mailbox without having to delete messages, you may want to know how to export them. Luckily, Outlook is designed to accommodate various scenarios, so you can export your emails from your Outlook account anytime, anywhere.

In such cases, the server does not know that you have received the message because it does not get the receipt confirmation. The next time Outlook downloads duplicate emails again and again. For the same reason, Outlook doesn't receive sent email confirmation and keeps sending duplicate emails.

If the "Leave a copy of the message on the server" setting is enabled when using the POP3 protocol, and you set up the same account on another computer, duplicate emails in Outlook appear every time you run the send / receive process.

Outlook rules create duplicate emails in different folders if you set up two or more rules running simultaneously. Then they can be applied to the same message several times and copy it to different folders.

Sometimes users create a new account in Outlook without deleting the previous one. Or they re-configure an Outlook data file duplicating the account. After that Outlook downloads duplicate emails to both accounts.

When you uncheck this setting, all future emails that you receive will automatically download images. Before disabling this feature, you should probably keep reading to find out the risks involved and why this security feature is enabled by default.

If you trust the sender, you can allow all pictures and content to be automatically downloaded when you receive emails from them. You can either allow their whole domain (eg. or just their email address.

I am using Outlook 2010 and have for years. Some time ago the option to download pictures in emails disappeared. I recently upgraded the OS from win7 to win 10 and there was no change (not that I was expecting any). Today I have unchecked the check boxes in the trust centre download and yet still the pictures do not download. I have checked out a number of help sites and there seems to be many with this problem without one solution being offered by anyone.

I have the exact problem as Aaron. outlook 365 is my client for hotmail, and gmail. images do not appear. option to view message in browser only. if I fwd I see the images, send to myself to/from hotmail/gmail when message is received, same issue. I have tried everything here and privacy settings in windows. I have shut off firewall and defender settings. removed other Anti-virus. has anyone found an fix for this

By default, Outlook checks for new messages every 30 minutes. Sometimes the interval is even longer if your computer is busy. If you feel that you have new e-mails that are not showing up in Outlook, you have a few options:

First log into your email account using your webmail interface and verify that there is only one copy of each message in your mail box and not multiple copies. If there is only one copy of each email message in your inbox, and yet you are receiving multiple copies, it means that your email client (viz. outlook) is downloading the same message again and again.

When you are downloading emails from a POP3 mail server, the mail server does not decide which pieces of emails you have already download earlier. This information is recorded only by your email client viz. outlook/outlook express (or any other email client such as Windows Live Mail or Mozilla Thunderbird). Below are the most common causes of this issue and how you can resolve it:

For remembering which messages Outlook already downloaded, it keeps a list of the message IDs for the messages it downloaded successfully. Next time when it checks for new messages, it gets a list of all the message IDs on the server, compares it to the list or message IDs it has already recorded as been downloaded, and requests only those messages that have not yet been downloaded. If the list of downloaded message IDs becomes corrupted, which is common especially when that list gets long, Outlook loses track and starts downloading all messages over and over again.

When outlook is downloading new messages from the email server, it first downloads all new messages and after that updates its local list of downloaded message IDs. Often, what happens is that an email message gets stuck during the download process. This causes your send/receive session to terminate without updating the local list of received messages, or without deleting received messages from the server (if outlook was set to delete messages on the server after downloading.

To resolve such a situation, log into your email account via the webmail interface and move the messages from your inbox to another temporarily created folder. Then start moving messages back to your inbox one or a few at a time, and downloading them to Outlook until you find the message causing the problem. Manage problem messages through webmail. You can either move the problem messages to a folder other than inbox or delete them permanently.

Some users setup their email client to check for new messages too frequently. They usually set it to check every minute. The most recommended time gap between two subsequent checks is 15 minutes. Checking more frequently, i.e. at smaller time intervals, can often result in the next check beginning before the last one ends. When this happens, the index file of the e-mail client will no longer be synchronized with the email server, resulting in multiple copies of the same message.

ok people, I got mine to stop. If you uncheck/disable your add-ins in Outlook it stopped doing it. Its obviously one of the add-ins I had installed but I haven't had time to figure out which one. Just a matter of trial and error. enable one by one (you probably have to restart after each one) the add-ins until you get that annoying file download browser window to pop up. good luck!

Hi, thank you for your support. is there any way to send weekly email reminders to co-workers about something? I need to save time and avoid forgetting to send those weekly reminder emails to others about something, I can use a template because it is going to be the same email every week. How can I create this repetitive weekly email send out?

See this in case useful: -us/topic/an-e-mail-message-may-not-be-delivered-at-the-scheduled-time-when-you-enable-the-do-not-deliver-before-option-in-an-outlook-message-2cc9c435-7162-2c56-d680-d2bd6f99e1dd

Is there a way to have ALL emails, written after working hours, delivered at the next time office is open?That would mean that a:Tuesday 7PM email would be delivered Wednesday 9AM orFriday 7PM email would be delivered Monday 9AM.My goal is to be able to send multiple emails off hours and have them delivered to my colleagues during working hours.

Hi, is there a tool or function where every time someone sends me an email, there will be an automatic generated email at a certain time? For example, I get off work around 5pm and get back to work at 9am M-F. I would like an automated email sent to clients if they email me during my off-hours, telling them that I am out of the office from 5pm-9pm and I can get back to them ASAP. I would like the same email sent Sat and Sun whenever clients email me on the weekends.

I work flexibly and therefore send emails outside of work hours but I do not want the recipient to have to see it until they start work the following day. Therefore, is there a way of delaying the delivery of emails that I send out of work hours but for that to not apply to emails I send during work hours. I know I can do this on an email by email basis but I would like to be able to set up an automated rule to save time. Any ideas?

I have been struggling for the past three days with the delayed delivery in Outlook. As soon as I schedule a mail to deliver, it comes to the outbox with all the details of the date and time when i scheduled, displayed under 'the Sent' label in the Outbox. But if I open any other window and come back to the Outlook, those details under the 'Sent' label vanish and displays 'none' under it. Whichever mail that has 'none' under the sent label remains in the outlook for ages. Anybody has experienced it?
