    If we press down on this option, we can see that there is only one box checked, and that is next to "Inbox".
    This means that only "Inbox" is currently synced, and we will only receive mail from the "Inbox" of our Microsoft Outlook account. We won't receive any "Junk" mail, and we won't receive the "Sent" messages. This could be difficult because sometimes, as we have all experienced, we receive important emails in the "Junk" folder. Also, it can be very useful to be able to read our "Sent" emails, so we can be sure that emails have been set, or if we need to check them for any information.
