It seems like most of the issues Gmail is facing in the last couple of days are caused due to the IMAP syncs with Microsoft servers. As of February 22, 2023, at 11:54 PM UTC, google’s engineering team was collaborating with the Microsoft team to investigate the email synchronization issue via IMAP.
Gmail Microsoft servers sync via IMAP
There are currently issues with syncing Gmail application with Microsoft servers via IMAP, which is causing synchronization problems. Users accessing Outlook or Hotmail email accounts through the Gmail application on any device platform are unable to synchronize new messages.
According to an update, the Microsoft team has acknowledged that other major email providers besides Gmail are also experiencing syncing issues with Microsoft’s IMAP server. Google team updated that they resolve the problem.
We do not know if gmails issues today, Feb 27, are related to the sync with Microsoft.
