    Header download for the '[Gmail]' folder did not complete. Could not select
    '[Gmail]' on the IMAP server. You might try refreshing your folder list to
    synchronize with the IMAP server. Account: 'imap.gmail.com', Server:
    'imap.gmail.com', Protocol: IMAP, Server Response: 'Unknown Mailbox: [Gmail]
    (Failure)', Port: 993, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCCD2

    Try this:
    Right-click on the "[Gmail]" folder, select Synchronization Settings,
    Don't Synchronize.

    Hey Everyone!

    I too did this and it worked for all except the {all mail} folder which
    still had the same error, but fear not my friends I have found a solution
    that worked for me and I hope it does all of you as well.

    1) Right Click Gmail

    2)Choose properties

    3) Choose the synchronize tab and uncheck the box
