Question: Microsoft Outlook not processing gmail emails

I want our gmail emails to come into and be sent from our Microsoft Outlook program.. we have a slingshot email which is doing this, but none of our gmail emails are. I think that the incoming and outgoing settings are correct for the gmail address, so don't know what to do next..

The question really says all about what I want to do, or need help on. I recently signed up for a new outlook account to try out the new outlook preview and I've set up gmail to automatically forward new messages to my outlook account so that I can use outlook to manage my gmail account.

Do any of you know how I would be able to forward the old messages, and not the new ones, to my outlook? I already know that they can be fetched into outlook by outlook's very own service, forwarding would be faster, so..?! Also, since I now use outlook to send email on behalf of my gmail account, how do I make it sync each email I send using outlook with my gmail - so that gmail has it all?

TY in advance. Please do help.

I use Outlook 2010 which syncs to my IMAP Gmail account.
This works very well.

Today something happening in Outlook (I might have dragged something, I don't know) and my mails (12,500 of them) ended up in Outlook's deleted items folder. Some Gmail folders just vanished, like Sent Items, Bin and Spam.

I immediately quit Oulook before it synced so all my mails are still safe on Gmail's servers. I checked via logging in to the Gmail website and also disabled IMAP to be safe.

I need some advice on how to fix the emails in Outlook.
I'm afraid that if I start syncing the mails will be lost from Gmail.
I also don't want to start a new Outlook .pst file as there are many gigs of emails to sync.

Does anyone have some advice?

Hi there,

I've recently set my parents up with a Gmail account but am having problems with transferring their emails from an Outlook PST file to their new account. I've tried following the tutorial at the link below without success - mainly due to the fact that Outlook seems to be very unstable on their machine (hence the change to Gmail).

Export and Backup Emails from Outlook to Gmail Online

Are there any other ways of migrating these emails across to their new account? Note that the migration tool offered by Google does not work as the Gmail account isn't connected to Google Apps for Business.

One possible solution is that I could migrate their emails via my Google Apps for Business account though I imagine it would take forever to then forward these emails onto them (most likely manually using the Forward) option?

I use outlook for about 4 email addresses (work and personal). I also do volunteer work for a charity and have an email address for that which is a gmail account.

I have tried repeatedly to set this gmail account up in Outlook but it didn't work. The only way I have found is to have two separate outlook account where I choose if I want to open my normal account of the charity account but cannot do both at the same time.

This is very frustrating as I need to be able to see my calendar and contacts when using the charity account.

Hi, when I searched the forums for posts on Microsoft outlook I found posts in the windows and the computer software areas, a majority of the posts appeared here so I thought I'd try posting here.Okay, here's my situation: I currently have an email account with Adelphia and I use Microsoft Outlook 2003 to access that it account.  I setup Outlook so that when I receive the emails from the Adelphia account Outlook removes them and transfers them to Outlook (meaning a copy of the emails don't remain in my Adelphia inbox).  I've decided that I want to stop using Outlook, mainly due to the fact that it makes it difficult to access my emails from computers not on my network account.  I've decided to switch to a gmail account (for other reasons involving irritation with Adelphia).My problem is that I can't figure out how to get my emails from Outlook 2003 to my new gmail account.  I've looked in the questions and answers section, the forum, and both faq on gmail and outlook official pages and still can't figure it out.  I think I've figured out a way to redirect new incoming mail, but that's not my concern what I need is to redirect my old emails.  I know that I could just forward all of my old emails to my new gmail account, but that will be a huge hassle and the emails would then show up as being sent from me and not the original sender.  If I can't figure out another solution I'll do th...

Answer:help transfering emails from outlook to gmail

I'm not absolutely sure but I doubt very much this can be done.  Think about it.  With Outlook, your mail is on your hard drive, not out on the Internet.  With Gmail, it is out on the Internet; it's web-based mail.  I looked at the info on Gmail on Google's site and, like you, found nothing about transferring mail from Outlook.  So, I no other option but to forward the mail to yourself if you really must get it all moved over to Gmail.

Answer:deleting emails in outlook, not connecting with gmail

Depending on how you're connecting to gmail it may not be possible. I know it's not possible to delete emails on the web server if you're using an HTTP or IMAP connection. By default, most tutorials tell you to use IMAP and POP isn't enabled be default on a gmail account.

To Enable Pop in Gmail:

1. Sign in to Gmail.
2. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
3. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
4. Select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
5. Choose what to do with your messages after they're accessed with your POP client or device.
6. Configure your POP client* and click Save Changes.

To Configure Outlook 2007 to connect via POP:

1. Enable POP in your email account. Don't forget to click Save Changes.
2. Open Outlook.
3. Click the Tools menu, and select Account Settings...
4. On the E-mail tab, click New...
5. If you are prompted to Choose E-mail Service, Select POP and then select Next.
6. Fill in all necessary fields to include the following information:
7. Click Next... You're Done. (Manual Cofiguration)

OK...Running Vista Home Basic on my Dell PC...5 days ago at 9:23pm I received my last email in Outlook (2007). Computer was idle at work. No problems for 4 years until now. 2 weeks ago went with a new ISP and did not change the codes for SMTP/Pop3/Imap because it was all working the exact same way--frankly, didn't think about it. Come in and there are no new emails. Hit Send/Receive and nothing happens. NO WAY, I get 50 a day. Go to Gmail account and it stopped at the same time. Find all new messages in Trash folder then all filters were removed to see what happened next. Emails were visible on screen (inbox) after that-and still are.

Answer:2007 Outlook/Gmail Account --Where are my emails going??

Any chance your old ISP was Rogers?

I thought that when you use POP , your email address is hosted and stored by the ISP.
Meaning, say your ISP was called Teleweb, your email address would have been [email protected].

I'm confused as to why you did not need to change the POP settings if you changed ISPs.

Im thinking your old ISP cancelled or disabled your email account, which may be contributing to the problem.

Also Gmail is webmail, so ISPs cannot influence how Gmail behaves. Were you forwarding your mail to the gmail account?

in outlook 2010, i understand one can use a gmail account without actually opening up the gmail account, that is he can run the account from outlook, does that mean one can delete messages also, just like a regular account.
when i try to delete a message, it deletes it from the inbox of that gmail account in outlook 2010, but under the gmail folder it updates itself, and downloads it again, even after i delete it from the gmail folder also.


Answer:deleting gmail emails from outlook 2010 folder

Hallo tapuz, you may have to sign into your gmail account and delete all your old messages.
From there select settings in the top RH corner
Then select Forwarding & pop/imap tab
In the pop download column go to option 2 and in the drop down box select delete gmails copy
Then select save changes.
This will stop gmail saving a copy once Outlook has downloaded it to your computer.

As I have a couple of Gmail accounts, I use Outlook 2010 (running under Windows 7) to consolidate them together and use it for reading, sending and archiving all my emails.
Until recently I have been able to manage my emails without problem, but within the past few weeks I have run into problems sending emails using Outlook for my Gmail accounts. Messages are stored in my Outbook but will not send. This does not happen all of the time, only intermittently, and even if I press the send/receive button, or reboot Outlook 2010, the messages remain in the outbox.
The only way I have managed to send them is to reboot my PC and then restart Outlook - then the messages send automatically as they normally should do and the outbox is cleared. However after a while, and not on every Outlook session, the messages do not send from Outlook unless I reboot my PC again.
I have checked my email settings and as far as I can tell they are OK (as they normally work):
Incoming mail server: and port 995
Outgoing mail server: and port 465
and outgoing server set to require authentication.
I get no error messages - the emails just remain in the outbox until I reboot the PC.
Can anybody advise how I can resolve this issue?
Many thanks for your help.

Hi. I'm trying to find out the correct way, for few months now.. And on one forum, they told me I have a bad imagination.

What I have, and want to achieve: I use an Android mobile device, and my web mail's address book is exactly the same as my mobile's address/phone books. When I do any modifications on my phone to the address book, it mirrors out on the web, and vice-versa... Same goes for any other kind of data that can possibly be on both mobile and the web... So my mobile is constantly in sync. Any Android device is the exact same way.. When you first boot up the device, for the very first time of its activation life as a mobile on a network; it has you enter a valid Gmail account.. For this synchronization of everything (not just Gmail) purpose exactly.

What I'm trying to achieve; is add a 3rd device to this ongoing sync.. What I'm trying to do, again, might be not possible; but I very seriously doubt it...I'm sure business people who use PDAs and Gmail should then, face this issue..

How do I set up Gmail in Outlook 2007 and/or in 2010, to work exactly the way I want??

I could clarify anything that is not understood, just ask..

I have some question about the Microsoft Account that is required to use some function of the phone.
My question is simple:
- if I will use Gmail to create a MS account, I will lost some functionality?
- do you prefer Gmail or Outlook? Why?
- if I will create a MS Account with a Gmail address, where the contact will be sync? To MS Account, or to the Gmail account?

Answer:Microsoft Account: Gmail vs Outlook

You will not lose functionality.
I prefer Outlook because it plays nicely with more devices IMO.
Also sounds cooler, syncs up with my Microsoft setup well too.
The webmail also hooks in well with OneDrive, Office Online, other PIM and GTalk, Facebook messaging...
The contacts will be synced to your cloud service of choice, you can choose outlook or gmail, regardless.
I created my MS account using my Gmail, I eventually elected to use my Outlook as my primary thing to sign in. It's flexible.

I've never bothered with a contact folder, because the autocomplete stores all of the e-mail address I ever use. This information, I presume, is stored somewhere. But not in my Contacts folder. Nor is it available in the folders offered by Outlook when I try to export to a .csv file for Gmail import.

I'd rather not have to enter ALL of these emails into the Contacts folder so if anyone has any tips as to where these autocomplete email entries are stored, I am all ears.

Well the subject line pretty much says it all.

Microsoft Outlook just suddenly stopped saving all my sent emails. And yet the option to have the emails saved is checkmarked.

I'm kinda at a loss as to what to do next

Answer:Microsoft Outlook Won't Save Sent Emails

Your SENT ITEMS folder probably has a size limit set on it. Try moving or deleting some of the existing items in the SENT ITEMS folder to another folder and see if the problem persists. How many emails are in the folder presently?

If that doesn't work you may want to try re-creating your Outlook profile.

I formatted my hard drive to reinstall windows xp. I took a whole day to make sure that I had everything backed up...I thought. I imported the pst file that I had saved for my Microsoft Outlook 2000 emails and it only contained my inbox emails. I had a lot of subfolders with emails that I have received for my business for the last three years. After I got done kicking myself for not clicking the "include subfolders" box before I saved the pst file, I realized that I could use Easeus Partition Master to recover the pst file from before the format. After Easeus finished recovering the image, I recovered the outlook.pst file from C:\Documents and Settings\*my name*\Local Settings\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook, I imported it into Microsoft Outlook and set back watching it load thinking I was really smart. When it got done, I still only had my inbox emails and it didn't recover all the subfolders with the three years of emails. I clicked "include subfolders" when I was importing. The data size of the pst file was similar to the size of the contacts.pst file and sentitems.pst that I saved. It seems that the subfolders weren't in the outlook.pst from before. Does anyone know if Microsoft Outlook stores subfolders in a different .pst file? I think I could recover them with Easeus if I can just find them. Somebody please help if you can. I really need all of those emails for legal purposes as well as my sanity.EDIT: Moved from XP ... Read more

Ok I have a ton of old emails and I have the old programs file of the HD it was on. I pulled the folders i thought would have any info to my laptop to try and gt these old emails back for a court case I am in.

However I am at a loss as to where Outlook downloads and stores emails and what format they are in.

I do know it was atleast outlook xp but most likely outlook 2003. Either way I need to access those emails.

Can anyone help out?

Ok now I have the files mentioned but when I go to open them I get this:

File access denied. You do not have permission to access the requested file.

Ok now what the heck do I do? I am using office 2003 and I believe I was using either office xp or 2003 when I had this outlook account. (Import does not work either)

Answer:Where and in what format does Microsoft Outlook XP and 2003 Keep emails?

Generally, they are stored in a pst file. If you have outlook open, then (in 2003) click on 'Tools, Options'. Choose the 'Mail Setup' tab and click on 'Data Files'. This tells you the full path to the pst file. Normally, it is;
%USERPROFILE%\Application Data\Microsoft\Outlook\Outlook.pst

Of course, this is entirely customisable (ie: you can change where the pst file is located). In older versions of MS-Outlook (eg: 97 and 2000), it is similar, but I think (by my rapidly fading memory), it can be obtained via the 'Mail' option in the control panel.

At a guess, if you installed outlook with the defaults on your old HD, then it will be in the path specified and you should be able to import this file. You may have to save the outlook.pst file onto your laptop and then import it by choosing 'File, Import and Export', choose 'Import from another program or file', choose 'Personal Folder File (pst)' and browse to the directory where you saved the pst file. Make sure you import the messages into another folder, otherwise they will be imported into your 'Personal Folder' and will be nightmarish, trying to sort out what were imported messages and what were your original messages.

Hello all,

I hope this is the right place to post my current issue.

Last Friday (6-21-13), our email servers on outlook as well as website were transferred over to a go-daddy server. All seemed to go well when I came in on Monday. I had all my old emails still there but then the tech walked me through the process of getting new emails. I was able to receive new emails but in the process it seems she had me overwrite my old email file. So now I can't seem to recover any of the old emails. My pst. file still seems to be enormous so I would think the info is somehow there. We had our IT guys work on this for over 12 hours and they were unable to help.

Has anyone ever been able to recover outlook emails?

Any help would be so greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

In the past I made the mistake to use my Gmail account to create a new Microsoft account (previously known as Microsoft Passport). At that moment everything worked like a charm. Reading mails on my WP8 was easy and worked as expected.
Then Google decided to boycott Microsoft. They made sure that it was almost impossible to connection to a Gmail account from a WP device. Luckily MS gave us a way to connect your Gmail to a account (as described here Because my MS account used the same login (ex. [email protected]) as my Gmail account, this was a very easy way to fix things. I immediately did this and at first it did what it had to.

On my desktop (where I use Outlook 2015) I connect directly to the Gmail account and on my phone (now WM10) I can only connect to the one. This is annoying because when I read mails on my phone, they are still unread on my PC.

I then found out that this wasn't possible because there was already an account with the same login ([email protected]). Normally you can just delete the old account ( before adding the new one.

I've been having this issue for some time now with my work email account that is hosted through our website, and it's emails "disappearing" so to speak, in Outlook.
I often use Outlook's "task feature" that allows me to flag emails then set their priority as high, medium, or l0w, and then work from that to-do list to complete my tasks.

What has been happening is that every so often, certain emails that are flagged (seems to be regardless of priority level) end up turning into what looks like code. Rather than looking like the email did when I first received it and flagged it, it turns into nothing but plain text that lists things like the server and IP address received from, the return-path, and a whole bunch of other stuff I don't understand.

I have attached an example of one message that started off as nothing more than a few lines of text in a normal email, and turned into this mess that doesn't even include the body of the message

If anyone has any idea what this is, or what causes this, your help would be greatly appreciated. This has been happening randomly and sporadically for some time now, and it make things very difficult when I lose an important email.

Yesterday our office desktop computer (a custom built job, I don't know all the specs but AMD processor and Windows XP SP3, I think it was more or less to gaming specs as of 3 or 4 years ago) was very slow, and would freeze every time anybody tried to print something.  We use it to process payments and issue receipts - so no receipts could be issued.  In the course of the day things got worse and some programs could not be launched at all.  Last night we shut it down and it started processing the usual second-Tuesday updates from Microsoft.  At 8:30 p.m. it got as far as update 2 of 5 - and 15 hours later it is still stuck in the same place.

What to do?

Answer:Office computer stuck processing Microsoft updates

Further to above, resetting the CMOS settings to their correct values restored most of the function - the remaining problem is likely caused by a failed update of the QuikWater program.  We have spent most of the afternoon working on that, hampered by the very slow download speed once the kids get out of school <G>.
Payroll doesn't depend on QuikWater so that won't be a problem tomorrow.
Tentatively, then, this problem is solved.  I should have a final verdict tomorrow when we have been able to download replacements for damaged QuikWater files.

I have just recently converted from using Windows Live Mail for my email to Gmail. Mainly because there was not an easy way to sync my contacts between WLM and my Android smartphone. Syncing is much better now, but the system differences is taking some getting used to. I notice when I am using Gmail and search for a past email, many times Gmail doesn't find it. I try it searching by contact name, by contact email address, and by subject. Of course, I can scroll back through my old emails and find it manually, but it is frustrating that Gmail cannot spot it quickly. It seems to have the most trouble when I am trying to find a SENT email. Sometimes, one I just sent yesterday. I click on the "Sent Mail" folder and the search box shows "in:sent". I type the info and nothing is found. I have tried it backspacing over the "in:sent", and with leaving the "in:sent" in place before my info. Neither way seems to help.

A long time back, all my emails started going into my allmail box instead of my inbox.
Most of the time, that doesn;t bother me. But there are times, when i lose focus on the allmail.
Then I have to try and remember the shortcut to get back to allmail, or to go the sibebar, where Inbox is on top and below that "important" and so on. But to get to allmail, you have to go down to more, and find AllMail as a submenu in that. It might even be necessary to make the browser page smaller, so you can see the More menu.
So is it possible to either (a) get messages to go into inbox, or to bring Allmail up to the top of the sidebar, where Inbox is located.
The second one would be my first choice, as that's where my most of all my emails are ie in allmail.
But if i can only do the first thing ie get messages to appear in my inbox, is there a way to move all mails in my allmail box to my inbox?

update. Okay, after all these years, i have found out that all mail refers to archived mail.
So if all my mail is going into archived mail, does that mean that at one stage, i chose to have all my mail be archived. Perhaps I hit something invaderntly.
I came upon this, because I had another question about Archived mail. I was wondering if I was looking at mail, in all mail, and ticked a post, and chose to archive it, and then deleted it, was it still in the archive. But as I am in the archive (all mail) I am deleting it from the archive, or am I.

Answer:how do i get all my new emails in gmail to go to my inbox?

all mail refers to archived mailClick to expand...

No, All Mail is exactly what it says. Mail in every location: Inbox, any folders you created, archived emails, trash and spam.
There is a label in front of the subject line telling you where that particular email is located.
When you delete from the archive it moves to trash. You will see it in All Mail with Trash in front of the subject.
You can also see it if you open Trash.

Go to settings: (gear icon) then click on labels. If you cahnge All Mail from Hide to Show it will appear at the top rather than having to click the arrow aside of More.

Every once in a while I'll have an email discussion with someone blow up.  All of the emails are open, and they are in backwards order each in indenting a little off from the other one on their left margins, and they form a kind of systematic tree where they branch off of each other systematically.
I can't figure out how to put them back into order, and close them.  
After that the gmail thread is totally shot, so I have to begin in another one.  
It's done this for years. 

Answer:Why does gmail blow up the emails?

You need to post screen shots.   I have never seen Gmail "permanently unthread" a threaded discussion though you can change views.  The relationship is in the e-mail headers themselves and all the e-mail client (or web interface) does is use that information to create a threaded view/conversation view.

Hi,Just recently the emails that were going into my WLM account are being redirected
into my gmail account.
I sent a test email from WLM which goes into my sent folder but not my inbox.
Is there a way to set it up so that gmail goes to gmail account and my emails
go into my WLM account.
Thanks for any help.
OS is Wndows 7 64bit

Answer:WLM emails going into my gmail account.

Hello Tommy,

What do you mean by "WLM account" ?
Is this an, or, or ISP (btinternet), or ... account?
WLM (Windows Live Mail) is a Client (installed on PC) email program and can have many email accounts.
Do you have multiple accounts setup in WLM?
Every email provider I know of also has a WEB site where the user can read/send/manage email.
Are you using WLM for some email, and WEB email for other email?
Each email provider may offer different protocols such as IMAP, POP, MAPI and that can make a difference in what folders are used for a client program such as WLM.

Then there's a "Windows Live account" if that's what you're talking about, and Skype can affect things from what I've read...

Below is a screen print from WLM 2012 showing my "WLM accounts".
I have 2 hotmail accounts here - 1 is MAPI, and 1 is a gmail and outlook account...
I mainly use Office Outlook for all my email, but I do use WLM on "test" systems for email that I know I don't need to keep ...

As you said it's a "recent change", can you restore to a point before the problem started?
Do you know what changed to start the problem - Patch Tuesday updates perhaps?

Hello tech guys,

used to move some emails coming into the promotion tab to be received into the primary [inbox] directly,
after this I noticed that some of the newsletter senders keep flooding with lot of emails everyday,
I wanted to return them into the promotions tab,
I tried to practice the same steps - by:
filter message like this >> next >> create filter >>
but this did not work,
I tried this several times but still coming into my inbox directly, and I dont want to block or spam them.
just to redirect into the promotions tab,
Any solution or idea about this ti share here please?

I have registered in some blog or forum sites. I was oblivious of the item of "receive news from the site". Now I've got like hundreds of emails from those sites, which really annoyed me. Is there a quick settings in Gmail, which enables me block those emails with just a few clicks? Or do I have to go to those sites, sign in and find the button to cancel subscription? Thank you for your help.

Answer:How to block some emails in Gmail

Isn't there a link for removing you from the subscription on the signature area (footer/bottom) of the body of message?
It will be usually listed as a link with name 'unsubscribe' or 'stop receiving the updates' etc.
