Okay not sure if I am going to make sense here.
Have been sorting out my Outlook on the new laptop. Our skating association has gmail addresses for our roles.
When I set up the Gmail so that I could receive the emails in my Outlook (Office 2010 version), it start downloading masses of data which is using up my download for my ISP. I did want to get all the emails anyway so I kind of understand that particular day there might be a lot of download, but it appears that every time I go into Outlook, it is just downloading. I have sorted it out with my personal email (as I think that was a problem too). But I am now freaking out because I am only a day into my new cycle and I have already used over 1.2 GB of my monthly data download and I only have 9GB for the month which is usually plenty of download.
I think it is a problem with the synchronisation set up, but even trying to find something on Google is a bit difficult because how do you actually describe the problem in a few words? I have now just set up the Gmail address to forward the emails to my normal email, but it is very handy to have the Gmail account set up as a separate folder so all the emails for the association are saved there.
However I didn't have this problem with my previous laptop and I can't check out the set ups on that because it is cactus. Does anyone have any idea how to sort this out?
