    I use a shared email account between two computers to answer emails all at once. It is set up through a gmail apps account using IMAP. The problem that I am having is that marking messages as read does not sync between computers correctly. If I mark a message as read on one machine, it will not show up on the other unless I close and re-open outlook. It will show up on gmail.com right away though. I am using Outlook 2003 on both computers.

    Any ideas on this one?

    I have just figured out that if I click off of the inbox folder to another folder, and then back to inbox it processes marked headers and fixes everything. Is there any way to keep them up to date without having to do that so often?

    There is no way to do this aside from hitting send/receive. You can set outlook to check emails automatically ever 30 minutes or less in the accout settings.
