Gmail “All Mail” IMAP folder missing in Microsoft Outlook

I’ve upgraded my Microsoft Outlook to Microsoft Outlook 2016/365 and added IMAP connection to my Gmail account. I was expecting that all IMAP folders to be listed as per my older Outlook. Unfortunately I found that all folders were available except the All Mail folder. This folder will list all emails available in my Gmail account.

After much research, I found a quick fix from Microsoft Community forum here.

In short, all you need to do is to create a new folder and name it as “All Mail” within the [Gmail] parent folder, as per the diagram below. All your Gmail’s mails will start synchronizing into that folder.

Happy New Year.
