A strange problem here with outlook (but then outlook is a bit strange).
Anyway firstly I should set the picture, outlook (2016 365 subscription) has been reinstalled completely two times without success.
Email provider has been contacted and setting verified.
The email account works correctly on out mobile phones (ios).
Right here's the problem ..
Defining the IMAP account is not difficult (as I run a server I've probably done so or explained the procedure at least 100 times), so I define the IMAP account in Outlook.
After definition the account sychronises as it should and all of the synchronized folders and content appear as they should; Except not the INBOX, nothing shows in the INBOX.
Well not usually but here's the exception; If I use the searchbar and type in a search (I normally use the letter 'a' because the letter a will appear in most emails) then the inbox contents appear as part of the search results, I firstly assumed that it is finding these results in a different folder but its not, there are no outlook automatic 'move to folder' rules active.
The default view on the mailbox is ALL.
I've had a session with a Microsoft Techy and he messed around with a few things but came up with the same result ?
Thank You ..
