Hi Everyone, Here is my issue: My employer uses Gmail Apps for our corporate email. I access this account from several systems (desktop, home, laptop, phone). I use IMAP to keep everything the same. With Outlook 2010, upon start of the program, it will sync and retrieve my emails. I can send messages, no problem. However, after the initial startup, it seems that the sync hangs and I do not receive any emails. If I close Outlook, then upon restarting the program, the emails appear. After doing some testing, it appears that Windows Firewall is the problem. If I disable the firewall, then I have no issues with Outlook. Is there some sort of special setting in Windows 7 Firewall (or in Outlook 2010) that will allow it to be enable and still allow my email to work the way I want? I have this setup on two other systems (Outlook 2007) and one of them is windows 7 64 bit with no problems. I do not want to buy another licence for 2007. 2010 should work. Thank you!
