Hi Rob,

Outlook processes new messages to support their own calendar, task, voting
and custom request. You will lose all this Outlook functionality if you
imported the messages directly from the IMAP4 folder and did not use the
transport mechanism.

There are ways of doing this ourselves, but it is a very risky business as
everything is undocumented and can change with almost every version and
service pack.

Number of options are available: On Outlook start-up, on folder selection,
automatic download based on set intervals and manually.
