Yes, you can use Gmail on Microsoft Outlook Express but you have to enable IMAP or POP in your account first before you can use and receive messages with an email client. To enable IMAP or POP, open your web browser and log in to your Gmail account. Next, click the gear icon on the upper right corner of the screen then select “Settings”.

Click the gear icon
Click the gear icon

In “Settings” screen, go to “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab then enable the appropriate settings. If you want to use IMAP, in “IMAP Access”, select “Enable IMAP” then click “Save Changes” at the bottom. If you want to use POP, in “POP Download”, select “Enable POP for all mail” then click “Save Changes”. After this, you have to get the correct configurations for either IMAP or POP whichever you selected.

For IMAP settings:

  • Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server – imap.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Port: 993
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – smtp.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
    • Requires Authentication: Yes
    • Port for SSL: 465
    • Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587

For POP settings:

  • Incoming Mail (POP) Server – pop.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Port: 995
  • Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server – smtp.gmail.com
    • Requires SSL: Yes
    • Requires TLS: Yes (if available)
    • Requires Authentication: Yes
    • Port for TLS/STARTTLS: 587
  • Server timeouts – Greater than 1 minute (5 is recommended)

Now, in Microsoft Outlook Express, go to “Tools” then “Accounts”. In “Internet Accounts” window, go to “Mail” tab then click “Add” and select “Mail”. In “Internet Connection Wizard” window, in “Display name”, enter your full name or the name you want to appear in your email message then click “Next”. On the next screen, in “E-mail address”, enter your Gmail email address then click “Next”.

On the next screen, select a server from the dropdown list (POP3, IMAP, or HTTP). If you want to setup a POP account, select POP3. If you want an IMAP account, select “IMAP”. After this, enter the details of the server from the list I created above then click “Next”.

On the next screen, in “Account name”, enter your Gmail email address then your Gmail password in “Password”. Click “Next” then “Finish”. After this, select “imap.gmail.com” item in “Mail” tab then click “Properties”.

Select your account
Select your account

Next, go to “Servers” tab then under “Outgoing Mail Server” section, check “My server requires authentication” then click “Settings”.

On the next screen, make sure “Use same settings as my incoming mail server” is selected then click “OK”. Next, go to “Advanced” tab then set the correct port numbers and protocols. When you are finished, click “OK” and that’s it. Test your new account by sending a new email message. If you receive an error, check the configurations above.
