Next you need to configure Gmail IMAP options. People have a tendency to forget to configure the Gmail side of the Gmail-Outlook connection, but you won’t. And it only takes a minute or two to set up.
Configure Gmail IMAP Settings
Follow these steps:
- On any Gmail page, click Settings. This opens the Settings page.
- Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP link. This opens the Forwarding and POP/IMAP settings tabbed page.
- In step 1, Status: IMAP, select Enable IMAP.
- Skip step 2 and click Save Changes.
That’s all it takes.
Now that you have the Gmail IMAP settings correct, return to the Manual Gmail Outlook Connections page.
