Fix Outlook sticks/freezes at Subscribed Folders Synchronisation on send and receive.

  • Select your inbox
  • From the menu click Folder > IMAP Folders
  • Outlook-IMAP-Folders-button
  • Click Query
  • Select all your IMAP folders
  • Click Unsubscribe. Outlook may warn you some folders are ‘special’. Click OK if this warning appears
  • Click OK
  • Close and re-open Outlook.
  • Select your inbox
  • From the menu click Folder > IMAP Folders

Outlook will now synchronise your folders, the time this takes depends on the size and number of emails stored in each of your IMAP folders.
