Managing Imap email

I am trying to setup my work email (Imap email) on my home pc using outlook. It's not downloading folders or old inbox items. It appears to be acting like it will receive and sent me mail but there is no reference to old mail. Any ideas if i need to change any settings ?

You'll need to check the following settings and make sure they are set correctly:
ss1
You may need to confirm settings with your IT dept

Your Name / Email Address
Account Type - IMAP
Incoming mail server - maybe imap.domain.com
Outgoing mail server (SMTP) - something like smtp.domain.com
Username / Password
Make sure port numbers are correct

Confirm that IMAP is enabled by your company / ISP

You may also need to check the settings for these 2 boxes as well.
Make sure to click on test account settings to see if everything is acceptedss2ss3
