Microsoft Outlook 2007 with GMAIL accounts

Using a GMAIL account in Outlook requires specific settings both in the client and your account settings:

GMAIL Account Settings:

– make sure that IMAP/POP SUPPORT is enabled in your GMAIL Account settings (Forwarding and POP/IMAP)

note: ‘Enable POP’ will work as well but does not offer the folder views from the GMAIL server

OUTLOOK 2007 Account Settings:

– follow these recommendations to configure your Outlook Account settings

note: if you have opted for POP3, use the settings below:

Incoming Mail: pop.gmail.com

Outgoing Mail: smtp.gmail.com

Account Name: your_id@gmail.com (Note that it is your full email address)

enable “My server requires authentication”

Gmail doesn’t use default ports, the ports are:

SMTP or Outgoing Mail: 465  (use SSL)

POP3 or Incoming Mail: 995

enable “This server requires a secure connection (SSL)”

If you’re having trouble sending mail but you’ve confirmed that encryption is active for SMTP in your mail client, try to configure your SMTP server on a different port: 587.

Check these FAQs if you experience loggin issues, such as unlocking your ‘Captcha’.
