Windows 8 and 8.1 Forums Missing Gmail Inbox

  1. #1 Missing Gmail Inbox

    For some reason only shows my email inbox. There is no inbox for Gmail. I checked my aliases and they are both listed. Outlook 2013 shows all my inboxes. My Lumia phone shows all my inboxes.

    How do I add a Gmail inbox to

    I re-added my Gmail account as a send and receive account and used a Google application-specific password and got this:

    "We're sorry, but there was a problem creating your account. We've tried to save your settings, but if you don't see your account on the set-up page, you may need to choose "Add an email account" and start over."

    Hmm, something is happening. My inbox is filling with mail from 2008. Maybe I'll check it again in the morning.

    Now instead of no Gmail folders I have two Gmail folders. One had ancient email, the other has new email. Weird.

    Hi there. Is this concerning the Modern/Metro Mail app?

    Yes, I know the wouldn't show Gmail folders and I don't think it's possible to set it up that way. Not sure.

    In the mail app > You have one Gmail account but two folders? If so, one showing older mail and one showing new? I have a Gmail account in my app, but was online yesterday checking things out. I noticed they revamped the site. Not sure when, though. Haven't been on there in quite a while. Perhaps there's a date separation, that's why the two folders?

    Lol! Mail from 2008?!

    Are you getting your Hotmail/Live mail via your Mail app or just online?

    I seem to be getting email everywhere now since removing and re-adding Gmail as a send/receive address. I got a bunch of duplicates on my phone and a bunch of old stuff; 48 of them, actually. After work I'll send some test emails and see what's going on. I now have it setup for all my email to go to the main inbox, so we'll see.

    It’s a little slow at work so I decided to look things over and put my thinking cap on.

    I think the problem is that my Gmail address is also my Windows Live login. What I just basically asked Outlook to do is go out and find more emails. Apparently it decided I was missing all the emails in my Gmail archive. I ended up with over 6000 emails over time and duplicates of a lot of the newer ones.

    I have now removed the second Gmail send/receive account and set my Gmail/Live account as the primary alias.

    In the beginning, I should have kept my Live and Google logins separate; it would have made life easier.
