    So i just decided to started using outlook.
    I added my gmail account and outlook shows it as having over 400 unread emails,
    the newest of which is 6 months old.
    In fact i have only 5 or so unread emails, all very recent.

    Whats going on here?

    I've only ever imported from/to Microsoft email clients, so I'm guessing it's because Outlook has no way of knowing which imported messages have been read, since they've been imported from a third-party email client. Whatever method Gmail uses to 'tag' messages as having been read, is not compatible with Outlook, so Outlook cannot respect those tags.
