I think that it might be the way outlook works if your really desperate select all your mail and forward it to the other gmail account and vice versa. I know it sounds stupid but that all that comes to mind good luck

It might be the option in gmail when set up. In gmail select settings and then the Forwarding POP tab. In the POP download section there is an option for all mail (even if it's been downloaded) and one for mail that arrives from now on.

I think the reason might also be that gmail supports POP3. if you check your gmail messages from home they won't show up on your office machine. gmail doesn't have an option (that I know of) to "leave messages on the server". All gmail messages are downloaded to the local machine checking the email and then deleted off of gmail's servers, thus, not allowing you to check messages on multiple accounts. IMAP could act as a workaround because it supports leaving messages on the server. With IMAP, you can download emails on multiple accounts because all emails are stored on the server until deleted by the user.

Hope this was helpful!
