I recently installed Service Pack 1 for Microsoft Office 2010. I immediately noticed something different In Outlook 2010 when IMAP e-mails arrive….
The previous version of Outlook 2010 did not provide proper notification of new e-mails arriving via IMAP. I wrote an AutoHotkey script to get around this problem:
- Outlook 2010 support for IMAP (with Google); or how AutoHotkey saved the day!
Outlook 2010 with Service Pack 1 now seems to provide proper notification in the Notification Area in Windows 7 and also changes the display of the Outlook icon on the Taskbar; the way it is supposed to work as per arrival of e-mails via POP3.
So I’ve now retired that particular AutoHotKey script; it was brilliant.
As descried in the link above, the other issue I had with the previous version of Outlook 2010 was that it would occasionally throw-up “Your IMAP server closed the connection” error messages. I haven’t seen this error with Outlook 2010 Service Pack 1 but it’s still early days. I’m monitoring the situation.
System config: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit, Microsoft Office 2010 (32-bit) Service Pack 1.
