      Re: my whole inbox is being redownloaded....

      I think what is happening is that Yahoo has taken all the mail out of the ALL MAIL folder on Gmail and is now delivering it as 'new' mail. I don't know what you can do about it. I have not had that problem as I emptied the All Mail folder on Gmail a few days ago, but I am receiving a lot more Spam than I used to.

      Sky should have realized this was going to happen and advised users to delete all mail from their Gmail folder that they did not want to keep. The Sky servers must be overwhelmed with the amount of mail being handled at the moment, I would not be surprised if they fail.

      Yes you can stop it by changing your settings so as not to keep copies of each email on the server but this may cause problems if you also use mobile devices to fetch emails using IMAP protocol as the emails will then be in your outlook inbox and not available to your mobile devices. The other alternative of course would be to use another email service provider.

      How is that going to stop it, sure they will not hold copies on the server, but they are still going to be downloaded? Where in the Yahoo settings can you do this? The only thing I can see in the POP settings is for Spam and if you want to forward the mail to another account. The settings on Yahoo are not nearly as comprehensive as the Gmail was.

      Untick, "Leave a copy of messages on the server" The following link shows where to find this setting: Setting Outlook to leave a copy of emails on the server I do not know whether it is the same in all versions of Outlook.
