outlook 2010
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Thanks KennethThe only way would be to sign onto your webmail hereClick me to openThen delete the emails there as this is where they are stored on the server.Outlook would then stop downloading these emails as they will no longer be on the server anymore.

What do I do next?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Hi there, you disconnected the app again and this kicks me out of the computer.But we have reset your password, so now use your new password ***** signing in hereClick me to openand delete the emails there.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
When I click me to open I go to BT page.
When I now go into Outlook I get a message "IMAP server closed the connection"
and the send/receive note reads error. What I wanted to achieve was to not receive the 5000 odd emails waiting to be delivered dated 10 march 2016. and then to continue using outlook. Has this been achieved?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
If your not receiving the 5000 emails now then it will have been achieved. Are they still downloading?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
As far as I can see they are not downloading. I assume the list of emails shown on the BT page ( approx. 9500) are the total number of emails received since the system started( please confirm) made up of those deleted and those currently still in the inbox.
How do I get outlook to resume normal; service?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
No, these are the emails you have in your account, thats what your seeing directly on the email server.In outlook, go to File, Account Settings and enter in the New Password ***** you changed it to.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
How do I reactivate Outlook
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
ok, Ill repeat again, In outlook, go to File, Account Settings and enter in the New Password ***** you changed it to.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I have done that and I am still getting the IMAP message
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
Can you restart the computer and tell me if you still get the error please.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
If I close and restart the computer I may loose you. Is there a site I can go to to get directly to you?
Expert:  Richard replied 1 year ago.
yes, you return here to this site and post a message. The message will come directly to me.
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
OK here goes!!
