|Thanks for your reply...|
The issue that I am having is that when I added my Gmail (IMAP) account to Outlook 2007 using the instructions suggested by Gmail and various web forums, a second directory is created for this account and email is not posting in the primay 'Personal Folders' directory.
As an experiment I deleted the IMAP Gmail account from Outlook 2007 and set it back up as a POP account. The result is that the second directory is deleted from Outlook 2007 and my Gmail pops to the Primary Folders directory... which is what I would like to have happen with IMAP.
My question (actually more of a plea for help as I have spent hours trying to figure this out) is can anybody please advise if Gmail IMAP can deliver email to the primary Personal Folders directory?
If not, it seems that the Personal Folders directory becomes worthless because there is nothing that will be posted to it (using only Gmail for email).
Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
