So you love using Outlook to manage your email, but you also have a Gmail account and you’re sick of opening separate windows just to read another email account. Guess what: you don’t have to. Not only that, you can also have Outlook alert you whenever you get a new message in your Gmail inbox. Here’s how to set up Outlook to receive your Gmail messages.

1. Click File in the Home screen to bring up Office’s backstage mode.

4. Click Next when you’ve filled up all four fields.

5. Hit Finish when Outlook is done setting up your account. This normally takes about a minute.

You should notice the messages from your Gmail begin to fill your Outlook inbox. If your account has a lot of mail accumulated in it, the process could take awhile.


Go to control panel Click on Mail –>Email Accounts –> New –> put your account information.

Enjoy 🙂
