Using Gmail account with excel email option set for outlook express

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

Is it possible to use my account with the email option in excel having been set up for outlook express? The reason I am asking this is because whenever I click on the email icon in excel an option box appears with the following options: 1. Send the entire book as an attachment 2. Send the current sheet as the message body How can I remove this box? I need your assistance.

Hi Lauren,

Yes you can, it is possible to configure your Outlook Express to GMail Account. Just follow below procedure;

  • Open your GMail Account then click the settings in upper right of Navigation bar.


  • Just click the tab marked Forwarding and POP


  • Then check enable POP for all mail you will received now on.

  • Then click Save Changes
  • Go to your Outlook Express, then click the Tools menu and select Accounts
  • Then Click Add Mail …
  • Go Type your name and click Next
  • Then Enter your Gmail address and click Next
  • Go to "My incoming mail server is a [dropdown box] server, then select POP
  • Go to "Incoming mail server," then type
  • Go to "Outgoing mail (SMTP) server," then type and click Next
  • Go to "Account name," then type your Gmail address ([email protected])
  • Go to "Password," then type your Gmail password and click Next
  • Then click Finish.

Of course you have to configure a new account,

  • Just highlight the account name and click Properties
  • Then Click the Servers tab
  • Go to "Outgoing Mail Server," while ensure that the following is checked: My server requires authentication
  • Then click the Advanced tab
  • You need to ensure the following is checked under both "Outgoing Mail (SMTP)" and "Incoming Mail (POP3): This server requires a secure connection
  • Go to "Outgoing Server (SMTP)" then type 465
  • Go to "Incoming Server (POP3)" then type 995
  • Now click Apply, click Okay and close.


Hope this help.

Best Regards,
