Outlook 2007 IMAP problems?

Good afternoon.

Is anyone else having trouble with Outlook and IMAP? I have been unable to use Outlook for the past several days, it hangs endlessly on “Downloading Hierarchy.” I tried deleting the IMAP PST’s, but the problem persists. This seems to coincide with the recent spate of technical issues at Dreamhost, so I suspect there is something going on on their end.


I’m having a similar problem with both Thunderbird and my Blackberry. Thunderbird (on two different machines) repeatedly re-downloads and reindexes my inbox. The Blackberry downloads the same subset of messages that are in the inbox over and over. It’s playing havok with the blackberry. Thunderbird seems to deal with it, but it’s annoying to have to wait for it to finish it’s process all the time.

I’ve been using this setup (Thunderbird and Blackberry) for at least a couple of years now and have never experienced a problem like this.
