IMAP email not downloading in Outlook 2010

Setting up a new imap account in Outlook 2010, only account, and connection tests good.  But nothing is visible or accessible from any folders.  When connecting, it goes through the motions and appears to be checking/downloading.  The first time takes a long time as expected, and subsequent Send/receive runs through quickly.  All subfolders are created, but all remain empty.  Checked for filters and cleared every folder.  Mail is still intact on Yahoo, just can't get to it from Outlook.

Did you set up a new Account in Outlook for Gmail?  Likely. Then it will be in a new PST file (as a new PST file for each account is a default in the Outlook 2010 new account Wizard.

Check all your PST files in c;\users\username\documents\outlook files.  You may find the email in one of the files.

Hello John
This is a new setup connecting to Yahoo mail.  Old Outlook profile was deleted by user as he attempted to fix the problem.  All the mail is still up on Yahoo.  Works fine to phones and from webmail.  All old PST files are irrelevant.  I am currently re-loading Office to see if it was some setting I don't know about making the messages not visible (ie filters, view settings etc.)  User tells me it used to work, but everything disappeared while he was using it one day.

Check (triple check) the POP and SMTP addresses for the IMPA account in the main Account settings. Check in advanced account settings that POP3  (995/SSL) and SMTP (465/TLS or 587/SSL) are correct according to the ISP (they sometimes use different values)

Let us know about re-loading Office. Normally Outlook is very reliable.

Reloading Office did the trick.  Inbox immediately populated.  Sub folders require opening the folder, make sure no filters applied, then send/receive.

Thanks for the posts.
