    I use Outlook 2010 which syncs to my IMAP Gmail account.
    This works very well.

    Today something happening in Outlook (I might have dragged something, I don't know) and my mails (12,500 of them) ended up in Outlook's deleted items folder. Some Gmail folders just vanished, like Sent Items, Bin and Spam.

    I immediately quit Oulook before it synced so all my mails are still safe on Gmail's servers. I checked via logging in to the Gmail website and also disabled IMAP to be safe.

    I need some advice on how to fix the emails in Outlook.
    I'm afraid that if I start syncing the mails will be lost from Gmail.
    I also don't want to start a new Outlook .pst file as there are many gigs of emails to sync.

    Does anyone have some advice?
    Thanks
