Currently my outlook to gmail is set to IMAP. I have set up folders where I drag in email from my inbox to keep it organized. outlook also syncs with other email accounts I owe, and to keep organized I drag from all email account to my costume folders created under my main email . since this is set to IMAP it pushes up to my main google account all email dragged into the folders up to my main email account which caused it to fill up to its limit.
The solution I have in mind is to create in outlook a new account for the same email account and drag all folders under the new created account then delete the imap account in outlook, and then do a clean up in gmail. with this deleted emails in gmail will not delete in outlook and in the future emails dragged into the folders will not get pushed up to gmail.
before I do it I want to confirm that this will work and will not do a mass.
Also the reason I use IMAP is to keep all setting (custom folders) when moving to a new PC as wall will it re download all emails regardless if it was already download. Is there anything I can do to keep this benefit of IMAP even with POP setting
