Problem Adding Gmail Account To Outlook


Recommended Posts



I am trying to add my partner's gmail account to Outlook 2010 on her PC.


I've gone though File > Email accounts > new and entered her gmail address and password. Outlook attempts to connect to the account via an encrypted and then an unencrypted connection, but fails with both.


I'm certain I have got the email address and password correct (because I can login via the web) .


I've also tried configuring server settings manually using : https://www.bing.com/search?q=gmail+pop3+settings&form=EDGHPT&qs=LS&cvid=160166e3212f48a6b6128bbdceb7d674&refig=db940077012942b5a6b3350269a42f0f&cc=GB&setlang=en-GB&plvar=0&PC=HCTS


Still no luck.


Any suggestions?

Have you gone into the account on a web browser and enabled it first?

 log into your Gmail account and open the Settings panel. Click on the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab and verify IMAP is enabled and save changes. Next open Outlook 2010, click on the next and go to the Add new account window.
