Fix for Imap Gmail account sync take too long

reported error (0x800CCCD2) or error 0x80048002….

disable Windows Firewall.

then go to:

File > Options > Advanced > Send/Receive > Edit “All Accounts”
For each account listed on the left, change the “Receive mail items” setting to “Download headers for subscribed folders.”

By default it’s downloading a┬álot of unnecessarily data which is why it’s taking so long.

you can try also:

go to account settings (for googlemail imap account) and click advanced account settings,

then select the “deleted items” tab. select “mark items to delete but do not move them”.
