Outlook imap folders not updating

IMAP users are not receiving new email into their inboxes unless they either click off of Inbox and back on, or close outlook and reopen.

Click More Settings button then switch to the Advanced tab. Right click on the IMAP Inbox folder and choose IMAP folders.

At the bottom of the dialog is an checkbox for When displaying hierarchy in Outlook, show only the subscribed folders.

It has come to our attention that many Outlook 2013 and Office 365 users are having issues within synchronizing IMAP folders recently.

This appears to be happening across all hosts due to a recent update that Microsoft has pushed out to all of its users.

Visit your Account Settings, then Advanced for the mail account that you are having trouble with.

I wrote a Python script that edits emails and appends them to a folder with the IMAP "APPEND" command.

The emails are successfully "created" as I am able to fetch them from the destination folder after the execution of the APPEND command.

The problem is that the newly created e-mails simply won't show up in Outlook.

We are a relatively small company so instead of purchasing exchange or using hosted exchange, we decided to use Go Daddy for standard pop/imap email accounts to save on the cost.

Everything works great for the most part, except with our IMAP users.

I can send an email from a separate account and watch it populate on my phone in my IMAP mailbox.
