AntiTwitter: @DalekDave is now a follower!
I need some help with my mail.
I have a Gmail account and another account.
Now, I've set up Gmail so it also receives and sends emails from my other account and I've used it like that for two years now.
I'm using IMAP, but on the mail server all my mails are unread and uncategorized, so it doesn't sync anything except inbox mailserver to inbox Gmail (one way).
Now I want to move from Gmail to Outlook 365 (and separate the two mails again), but that means all my mails are simply synced as an unread list in my inbox.
I've tried Googling, but no solution is really easy or clear.
One problem I have is that everything is in the same Gmail account, so my "sent" folder, for example, contains Gmail and other mails, while I only want the other mails.
Any sent mails are also not synced to the mail server, so they aren't read by Outlook.
Is there any way to sync/export/import everything I've ever did with my other mail account in Gmail to my mail server/Outlook 365?
I've never managed to get Microsoft's idea of what my mail folders should look like and google's idea of them to dovetail so all I can say is best of luck. You may have to get creative, but be careful with necromancy, as it's usually stateful and causes side effects.

Well, if you must Outlook:
1. You could take a brute force approach. In Outlook, add your gmail account as an IMAP account. Tell it to cache as many months as you want to. Then open the sent folder, do a search on whatever you want, select all and move to whatever folder you want (or create a new one).
2. If your outlook365 account is connected to an exchange server (like O365) and you have admin privileges, you could create a gmail pop account and then import the pst file into exchange... no, don't do that. I did it for 20 users and it was a nightmare.
If you can keep your head while those about you are losing theirs, perhaps you don't understand the situation.
If your outlook365 account ... and then import the pst file into exchange...
recently helped move someone with 7 years of email to o365 on-line- he never threw away anything, even the full 7 years of junk mail). previously was pop so already in .pst files. (and when I say "helped" he watched me do it - didn't know how to even start anything like that himself.)
anyway [small blessing] it was already split up by year = 7 pst's
- 4 of them over 1 gig [blessing depreciated]
followed instructions to import the first (smallest) pst, not the most confidence inspiring process.
so decided instead [on his desktop] to:
- add the old .pst files (external pst in accounts & files)
- in the online create a new [year-named] top level folder
- create matching subfolders (Inbox, Sent...) and drag (moved) the contents over from the local/attached .psts
yeah slow, but less farting about than the .pst import
(actually seemed faster too, or at least it didn't just sit there seemingly doing nothing - you could scroll and watch the psts arriving at the destination in date order so could estimate time left)
so anyway rather than copy all, just add the other account / .psts to o365,
drag and drop only what you want (copy or move)
the detach the other account / .psts
after many otherwise intelligent sounding suggestions that achieved nothing the nice folks at Technet said the only solution was to low level format my hard disk then reinstall my signature. Sadly, this still didn't fix the issue!

I have multiple gmail accounts for different purposes and use Thunderbird to transfer emails between accounts without having to forward everything. On occasion I mess up and send from the wrong account.
You can download everything from gmail into Thunderbird, and you should be able to upload into Outlook.
Warning: Thunderbird doesn't understand labels -- it treats them as folders. If an email has more than 1 label, it will get downloaded once for each label.
