I created a folder under my Gmail account in Outlook 2003. I then dragged a
message from the Inbox to that folder. After doing this, the message doesn't
disappear from the inbox in Outlook -- instead it appears with strikethrough
(as if I pressed the delete key). In the target folder it appears without
After Imap syncing the message DID appear under the corresponding label in
Gmail's web interface. However, the message ALSO still appeared in the inbox.
If I do purge deleted messages in
Outlook, the message then disappears from
the Inbox but it also disappears from the folder I moved it to (even though I
didn't delete it from that folder). And on Gmail's side, the message gets
moved to Trash.
So, how can I move messages from the inbox to another folder in Outlook and
have them end up ONLY in the moved-to folder?
I know I can (and have) set up filters in the web interface to
messages to folders based on content and by checking the archive box they
appear only in the target folder and not in the inbox -- that's great for
recurring content but not for the occasional one-off message I simply want to
put in a different folder.
I know I can also do the move manually via the web interface and it will
also work fine. However, I'd like to be able to do all my work in Outlook and
not have to keep switching to the web interface for managing the folders
