I've recently decided to change my ntlworld mailbox access from POP3 to IMAP4, and it's all working fine apart from the additional [Gmail] folder that has appeared in the mailbox file structure in Outlook.
I've had a look at some other message threads which suggest that there is no way to remove this, however, is this really the case?
A solution would be to use recent: and POP3 still, however IMAP4 is the 'better' solution, apart from this [Gmail] folder issue.
If someone could get back to me, that would be great.
[It would seem that a solution has been found for mac users : http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?messageID
Could this be translated to a solution for Outlook users?]

here is the dialog box you are looking for. If you put the original blueyonder mailbox name (something like firstname.lastname@example.org) corresponding with the email address in question, then the [Google Mail] thing vanishes. However, all you then get is access to the inbox, none of the webmail folders, so you might as well use POP3.
What's the problem with [Google Mail] ?

Thanks for the quick reply - that looks like it would solve my issue.
Where would I find the orignal (ntlworld in my case I presume) mailbox name?
I'd like to use IMAP4 so that I can download emails to multiple clients (Outlook, my phone, and Windows Live Hotmail) but ideally I don't want the 30 day limitation that POP3 with 'recent:' provides.
I suppose there's nothing 'wrong' with the [Gmail] folder, it's just I'd prefer to use the file structure that I'm used to in Outlook when using POP3.
