How can I add Gmail to MS-Outlook 2007?

Asked By 10 points N/A Posted on -

I have Gmail Account but I’m still used on using Outlook 2007 as a desktop client for emailing.

I want to know how to add my Gmail to MS-Outlook.

I heard that Hotmail account can be added to this, but mine is Gmail so I want to learn how to use this feature.

If you know how, please send me guides on how to do this please.

You can set your Gmail Account to Outlook very easily.

You can send and receive your E-mails from G-mail account in Outlook.

There are different ways to configure Gmail with Outlook.

First of all enable your IMAP.

To do this follow the instructions:

  • Select Settings located at the top of the Gmail navigation bar.
  • Go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
  • Enable the IMAP in IMAP Access and click Save Changes.

On your Outlook menu, select Tools then Account Settings.

  • Click New under E-mail tab.
  • Type any name under your Name and enter Gmail address under Email Address.
  • Now Check Manually configure server settings or additional server types and then click Next.
  • Ensure that Internet E-mail is selected then click Next.
  • Select IMAP in account type.
  • Type under Incoming mail server
  • Type for outgoing mail server (SMTP)
  • Enter your Gmail User name & password
  • Click More Settings then go to Outgoing Server tab.
  • Check the field my outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
  • Type 465 Server Port Numbers for Outgoing server (SMTP).
  • Click OK then finishes the process.

Access Gmail via POP:

  • First of all enable the POP.
  • Open your Outlook 2007 then go to Tools Account Settings
  • Under Account Settings choose the E-mail tab then click New
  • Enter your Gmail account information and Click Next.

Note: Do not check “Manually configure server” settings.
