I can't add my gmail account to laptop...

Question: I can't add my gmail account to laptop...

I have an outlook.com and a gmail account. They are both listed when I use Win 10 Mail on my desktop and older laptop. I just got a new laptop and I want to add to it, the same gmail account to my Win 10 Mail. It seems that I have to set up a new gmail email account and not simply transfer the old one over to the new laptop? I don't know how the other computers have both email accounts listed. Please help. Thanks.

Preferred Solution: I can't add my gmail account to laptop...

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

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 Outlook.com account (as described here http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/gmail). 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.
After a while I found it frustrating that my emails were now synced on 2 mailboxes using the same login. 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 Outlook.com one. This is annoying because when I read mails on my phone, they are still unread on my PC.
I read that it is now possible again to connect directly to Gmail on WM10. So I tried to add my Gmail account again. 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 (Outlook.com) before adding the new one. But since my [email protected] is also known as my MS account, I can't delete it. It is tied to the account and will always connect to... Read more

hello
How do i move my email with all my runs from a GMAIL account to a OUTLOOK.COM account?
thanks in advance

Answer:How do I move my email with all my runs from a GMAIL account to a OUTLOOK.COM account?

Hi... I think we need more details. Could you join the site so you can reply in this thread?
What App was used to capture the runs? What device did the tracking?
Where are you trying to view the runs? What output (Google Maps, App "X", printout maps)???
On the surface it looks like you are asking about an email... Which you could forward. I think what you really want is how to move a service to a new email address as the reporting default without loosing all your stored data, yes?
So more details are critical.

I have just changed third-party Internet Providers for another company. I lost my email addresses in the transaction. It was a very small company so I could not transfer my email addresses to new account. So I won't have to go through that hassel again I opened gmail accounts.

My question is can I set up my gmail accounts as our default email accounts we access through Outlook? If I can, how do I do that? I have never even set up email on my new laptop, I just went through IP's server which was a hassel. I usually use one account on one computer and my husband uses one on another computer. I hate having to go to the gmail page. No I don't want all the bells and whistles Google is offering. I just want to turn on my computer, click on a link and open my email in a program I know how to use? I can't find any help through Gmail. Everything I found cost me. That leads to a second question. Does Google have a technical support phone number? One that does not cost?

Anyway, my computer OS is Windows 7 and I am using Outlook from Office 2003 on one computer the other computer uses Windows XP and Outlook from Office 2003.

Hi all,
A few years ago I bought my son an Xbox and when I did I needed to create a microsoft account. At the time, the directions for xbox indicated that you could use any existing account. I had a gmail account, so I signed up for the xbox account using my gmail account.
Afterwards, I tried a windows phone 7.5 and I used the same gmail account for my microsoft account. Since then I had to switch carriers (from att to sprint) and I lost my windows phone.
It has been a few years, and I don't remember how this all works. When I log into my microsoft account using [email protected], I use a different password than what I use when I log into my gmail account. The microsoft contains all my gmail emails (unread). I am assuming I had link the MS account to the gmail account at some point, but I don't remember how I did this???
Fast forward to know, I want to try a windows 8 phone on sprint, and I don't know if I should make a new MS account or use the old gmail account?
If somebody could help me remember what the heck I did a few years ago I would appreciate. I really don't like having my gmail account tied to my MS account...
Thanks

Answer:gmail mail account is my MS account?

It looks like you need to change the e-mail address associated with your Xbox Gamertag. I needed to do the same last year. When Microsoft launched Outlook.com, I immediately signed up for an Outlook.com e-mail address. But my Gamertag was tied to my old Hotmail address. After consulting the Xbox support site, I was able to change the e-mail address associated with my Gamertag from my Hotmail address to my Outlook.com address using the following procedure:Sign up for a Microsoft e-mail address (*.outlook.com). (NOTE: Do NOT create a Gamertag for this address. If you did, you would need to delete that Gamertag and wait 30 days for the new e-mail address to be able to accept another Gamertag.)Start the Xbox and let it log into your old account.Navigate the Xbox settings to find the option to change the e-mail address of your Xbox account. Select that option.When prompted, provide the new e-mail address (*.outlook.com) and corresponding password.
After I did that procedure, all my purchased apps, games and music transferred to my Outlook.com account.

I would recommend contacting google support directly for security related troubles although before taking that step you could check any filters you have set in place.

Possibly there is a filter that is auto-trashing incoming emails based on certain parameters of content?

Hope this helps - and Merry Christmas!

That error indicates some sort of certificate trust issue - but I can log into the same account with any of the browsers, including Edge. I've tried clearing the IE SSL state and I've looked at the certificates but I don't see anything wrong.

A publishing company I do some freelancing for set up a ?special? email address for me, using gmail, as I?d found that using my regular, personal gmail email address often meant that my questions to interviewees ended up in their spam folder, and I never got a reply. Their company rules don?t allow freelancers to have company email addresses ? e.g. [email protected] ? so the address they set up for me was [email protected] ? ?The Very Good Magazine? being the magazine I write for. Other than my email address, though, theverygoodmagazine.com doesn?t exist ? there?s no domain name of that name, for example. The key thing is that [email protected] is a gmail account.Why am I telling you all this? Well, because I?ve just set up a limited company, and I?d like an address that reflects this - e.g. [email protected]. I?m not yet ready to set up aceplumbers.com as a domain ? I just want the email address, and I want it to be a gmail account.So, finally, my question. Can I set up such an account? Or are ABC company who set up my [email protected] gmail address a gmail corporate user who are able to get Google to do this kind of stuff for them ? and it?s something that mere mortals/individuals can?t do?.Any insight much welcomed.

Answer:WLM emails going into my gmail account.

Hello Tommy,

What do you mean by "WLM account" ?
Is this an @hotmail.com, or @outlook.com, 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 POP...plus 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?

I also clicked on ' Forgot your password' icon, answered the questions i could remember. Moreover, I gave google another gmail address of mine to send me a confirmation code but afterwards, 'Couldn't sign you in' message appears again.

Okay, so I have a google account to which I don't remember my password - from years back.

It's hooked up to an emergency account at @postmark.net

A now defunct service provider.

I have my cell phone hooked up to the account so that gmail sends me a certification code.. but the e-mail that they send a one time rescue password to is no longer in existence.

Am I out of this email forever? Are there any other ways to recover?

Hi, my Gmail account has been comprimised yesterday

They have changed the secondary email so I cannot just reset the password

I have tried to fill out the form to regain control over your account (https://www.google.com/support/accou...pe=ara&ctx=ara) but they declined to give me my account.

I have filled it out as best as I can, but I cannot remember the dates that I set up (I have deleted the email that I got when I set up the account). I never use personal information with that email account, and I didn't really mind about it, but I have got accounts registered with other sites (VF, SF, EF etc.) on it. I have changed the emails and passwords on these sites, but I don't know if I have missed any websites.

Is there any way that I can contact google (preferably by email) to sort out this?

I know people will try to say this to gain control over somebodies gmail account, but you can check my rep and posts, I am a truthful person.

Thanks in advance

Unintentionally, Google has created a major buzz about its new social networking service, ironically named Buzz. By automatically turning people?s Gmail email accounts into social networking ones, Google may have broken the trust the account holders have about their privacy. Google certainly seemed to have an idea that they might be invading personal space, making several serious modifications to the Buzz service soon after its launch. But the Electronic Privacy Information Center (EPIC) believed that this was not enough, and filed a formal complaint with the Federal Trade Commission on Tuesday, requesting more changes to the service.
What exactly did Google do wrong? How did they manage to get these regulatory bodies riled up? In a statement by EPIC Executive Director Marc Rotenberg, the fault seems to lie in not providing a choice to consumers, about if they wanted to join Buzz or not. "E-mail is for private messages. You sign up for social networking to communicate publicly with people, Google tried to turn e-mail into social networking, and that's where they ran into trouble." The EPIC believes that Google indulged in unfair or deceptive trade practices that violate the Federal Trade Commission Act. To begin with, Google never asked people if they wanted to join Buzz. When users logged into their accounts, many might have been irritated/underwhelmed by the ?offer? to ?Check out Buzz?, and simply continued on to their inbox, by clicking the ?Nah, go to my inbox...

Hi,

I need help to access my gmail account. I changed my password and when I tried to login with the correct details, I get an error message. I have reason to believe that my gmail account has been compromised. How do I get gmail to accept my correct login details? I have both the old and new passwords.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Thanks!

Answer:How do I access my gmail account?

I suspect that you need to contact gmail, if you truly changed the password.

Hi I've have to old gmail accounts that I used to have assess to but I forgot the password to. And one of them I used to login to my Twitter account. I need help because when I try to rest my password/ recover my account I wasn't able to do it because the way Gmail is setup it ask you for all the time and dates or when I last used it. I don't remember. All I know is my user name and that without my [email protected] account I can't login to my Twitter account Brazilah. And my other Gmail account [email protected] has the same problem. Although the only difference is that [email protected] is linked to my old cellphone number that I don't use anymore because I'm not with the same cellphone compony.

Now, I need some data from that gmail account. I want to get back that account. But I don't know how to recovery my delete ID of gmail (googlemail ID).
Please tell me whoever know about that.
Thank you..

Answer:Delete gmail account

When you deleted your gmail account it was totally wiped out. So was your mail. There is no way to reactivate it.

The only thing you can do is try to set up a gmail account using the same name. It may not work if they hold deleted user names for a period of time before releasing them to be used again.

If it does work your previous mail would not be there.

I just got a new Windows 8 laptop and can't add my gmail account to the mail app. When I click on the mail tile it says "You need to update your microsoft account profile before you can sign in. There are 2 options below "Fix It" & "Cancel".

If I click Fix It it launches a new web page but the page is never loaded. I'm not having trouble with any other web pages, it just seems to be this one. The same thing happens when I try to launch the Calendar or People tiles.

I tried logging into my live.ca account through the microsoft website, didn't look like there was anything wrong there. Any ideas on how to fix this problem?

Answer:Can't add Gmail account to Mail

is IE your default web browser? If you made Chrome or Firefox or any other browser the default, try switching your default browser back to IE to complete this process. then you can switch back to your preferred browser. though it'd be better to keep IE as the default so that you keep your access to metro IE10. You can still use other browsers while IE is the default.

Just logged onto my Gmail today from my computer (normally check it from iPhone) and i get a notice saying my account was accessed from S. Korea 4 days ago, i'm not sure what happened due to that, if anything, and what I should do as far as reporting it, since it seems they already know, and what I should do to avoid it. Cause lots of accounts are registered to that email, i.e. my WoW account, among other games, and Xbox live, bank, etc etc. so i'm a lil worried, what should I do ?


and I'm sorry if this is the wrong section for this kind of question, I searched for about 20min trying to make sure i picked the right sub-forum to post in, and this seemed to be the best fit.
 

Answer:Gmail account issue

Change your password now.

Actually, don't just change your password for google.

Change your password for everything serious (e.g. banking, etc).

I cannot think of a good reason why there would be a S. Korean IP on your account unless you are using Tor or some other strange proxy system.

In the future, use https://gmail.com to connect. It is more secure than the http:// connection

Hi everyone.

I've had a gmail account for about two years now and thought it was the dog's _____ until last week. I tried to log onto my account from the gmail.com page and it's telling me that my username and password do not match. This puzzled me as I use the Opera browsers autofill function to fill in my password for me and the username is already filled in when I get there so I tried it manually.......same story.
Next I went down the "forgotten password" route and was informed that my account name does not exist.....starting to worry now.
Just to test this out I tried creating a new account with the same username. This time it said that the username is already taken and should try another one. EH???
How can one part of the system know it exists and the other not?
I'm tearing my hair out here. I don't keep any sensitive info on the account but I have two years worth of emails stored on it and some of them are very personal messages from friends and it would be aweful to loose them all now.
I've had no reply from the Google support team to any of my help requests.......guess I'm just too small for the likes of them.

If you decide that you don't need your Gmail account anymore, and you're sure you won't want your username in the future, you can simply close the account. Here's how:

1. Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
2. Open the Accounts tab.
3. Click Google Account settings.
4. Click Edit next to My services on the right side.
5. Click Delete Gmail Service.

Once you close your Gmail account, you can't reactivate it, and you won't be able to retrieve any messages.

Recently my WoW account has been hacked 3 times. Now I know how - someone managed to access my Gmail account. In the gmail activity there are couple of suspicous IPs comming from Korea and China accessing my account. If needed, I can post them.

So I ran antivirs scan (Free Avira) but found nothing. Theres no other signs of outside activity on my PC. But the fact that my password to WoW, Battle.net and Gmail accounts have been changed couple of times is, I believe, enough evidence.

So here I am. Files attached. I do have access to win xp cd.
Hope I covered it all.

Quick question - should I change passwords to, for example, bank accounts? I mean - perhaps the only way they access my accounts is some kind of keylogger, which would make changing passwords pretty silly now. Please advise.

Hey,

About six weeks ago, both my Gmail and WoW accounts were hacked. I recovered my accounts and changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran Avast, Malwarebytes, and Microsoft Security Essentials. They found a few viruses and they were deleted, and I received no more trouble.

However, just a few days ago my Gmail and WoW account were hacked again. I once again recovered my accounts, changed my passwords on a clean computer, and ran the same three anti-viruses. This time, however, they didn't find any viruses.

I very strongly doubt that someone got a hold of my passwords because a) no one knows my passwords, and I change them regularly, and b) the accounts were accessed from China both times (and I live in Canada). Both times, the hacker changed my passwords, and despite having access to a lot of other information, only used my WoW account to sell in-game items.

I would greatly appreciate any assistance in helping me find what I assume is some sort of keylogger. Thanks!

When looking in my inbox it said "failed emails" and it a list of everyone in my account had been sent an email promoting a website link.

I looked into my sent folder, and it says it was sent from my account, even tho I haven't sent it myself, nor have I been on the computer at that date.

My password is very strong, and I only log into my account on my own computer, uptodate and antivirus/firewall etc.

Have I been hacked somehow? this is my main account for paypal, ebay, basically everything. I've changed my password already.

What should I do??

Everytime I tried to change the password on my Batte.net account and it was quickly changed as if someone knew what I was mailing to Blizzard Support.
So they said that they suspect that I have some sort of Keylogger or something so my password has been leaked.

So since then I've been running several cleanup programs against viruses, trojans and all that kind of stuff, suggested by Blizzard Support.

I don't think that there is a good answer for this problem, except starting over from scratch on one of my computers, but I shall ask regardless. Originally, I didn't intend to install my email client (The Bat) on my secondary computer, but due to the fact that the other computer went down for a few days, I did anyway.

Now, with both machines running, instead of both machines receiving the same messages, creating a redundant record in each, the computers split the messages, depending on which checks Gmail first. The email is left on the Gmail account online, but when the second machine checks, it is though Gmail sees both machines as the same one, and doesn't send the messages again.

I believe this is due to the fact that I copied the application data from one machine to the other, thus something in that data has an ID mark somewhere that masquerades each machine as being the same. I have no idea of where to look, and even if I did, no idea of how to edit it, without causing other problems. Chances are, I will just reset the secondary client to not check email at all, so that all messages come to the primary one, but if I need to access an old message when the primary is down for some reason, the only way that I could do so is online at Gmail, which I dislike doing, because I rarely label and archive the account, and have a very large pool of messages in the inbox.

I don't really expect a usable answer for this, but I'm hoping that someone might know a trick.

Hello All,
 
Forgive me if this has been posted before. I am a newbe!! I've just purchased a new netbook with Windows 8. I've tried to sync my Gmail account to the mail app without any success. I have read through this forum and I have followed the instructions to create an 'app-specific password' however I am still getting the following message: 'That email address or password didn't work. Double-check them and try again'
 
Any suggestions?
 
Many Thanks

Answer:Syncing Gmail Account

First off, what program are you trying to sync Gmail emails to?  Second, did you go to http://mail.google.com/mail/u/0/?shva=1#settings/fwdandpop and configure gmail to Enable POP & Imap for your email program to be able to use either method, to retrieve emails from gmail?
 
Third, did you follow the information at http://support.google.com/mail/troubleshooter/1668960?rd=1 regarding setting up your email program for retrieving emails from your gmail account?

Answer:how to delete my gmail account

OK. Open your gmail account, click on the Settings button at the top right (looks like a wheel). Then click on "Accounts and Import" tab (3rd from left), then locate "Change Account settings" and under that the blue hyperlink "Other google account settings". A new page will open, click on the "Edit" blue hyperlink next to "My products". Then click "remove gmail permanently".

or just this:

I am in the process of setting up a home business and wish to set up a separate business email account with low set up costs. I currently have a personal Hotmail and Gmail accounts but wish to create a secondary Gmail account for my business. I do not have a registered domain name. I tried numerous ways to set up a secondary gmail account without success it would initially accept the new gmail address but when it would ask to activate the account, it would not allow me to login to the account to do this. It would come up with a message advising that the account email address is unknown. So I would again go through the process off adding a new account, I would add the same email address I wish to create and it would then advise that the username is already taken, so I just keep on going around in circles. I then went into Google Apps for business in which it would ask me to register my domain name for a fee of $13 per year. However, the domain name would be registered under the two options provided Enom and Go Daddy. Neither in which I am familiar with. Can you please offer some assistance. My first preference would be setting up a secondary gmail account and if not is google apps for business a reliable avenue in registering my business name in order to obtain a professional separate business email account and if so which provider is the better option. Keeping in mind I wish to keep the costs at a minimum at this stage. Thanks

I was unfortunate enough to have my personal Google gmail account hacked this morning by one of these spammers that resets your password and then sends an email to everyone in the address book that you've been robbed in London and need the recipient to wire money so you can make it home. I haven't been able to access the account and I guess it is gone for good because Google keeps rejecting my account recovery pages. So far, apart from the damage to my pride, nothing seems amiss. I have some annoyed and some amused customers contacting me but my main concern is is the damage limited solely to Google? I don't have a keylogger or anything like that do I? How would I know? Is there any way I can get back into that account without Google's help? I've been changing passwords and usernames all day but I'm paranoid that I've forgotten something. As an extra precaution I reset my computer to a clean restore point before all of this happened. Any help/encouragement is definitely appreciated.

Answer:Gmail account hacked...

Never mind guys. I've sorted it.

I've tried using the Mail app, Calendar app and the Settings > Accounts page. All have the same result - I see the Google login screen very briefly, then an error indicating that my network connectivity is bad (it's not), and once that is closed, I get an error code: 0x800b0109.

That error indicates some sort of certificate trust issue - but I can log into the same account with any of the browsers, including Edge. I've tried clearing the IE SSL state and I've looked at the certificates but I don't see anything wrong.

Any ideas? I'd really like to add my Gmail + Calendars + Contacts to this machine!

Thanks for any tips,
Mark Smith

Hi Is there any way of removing/deleting a Google account/ gmail from a win 7 pc ie9 I don't have the password and when I go through the password recovery it says no record of it. I looked at doing a restore but don't have a restore point early enough, if I reinstall windows will that remove it or will it come back with the reinstall, hope you can understand this.
Regards Gunner

Answer:Gmail/ Google account

Hello there,
 
We need a bit more detail, as your question is quite confusing.
 
Are you referring to deleting a Gmail account permanently, so you cannot login to it anymore? Also, just to clarify, Windows is completely different to Gmail. Re-installing it won't affect or delete your Gmail account.
 
Thanks,

Hi

I logged on to my Gmail account this morning, and found that the vacation setting was on. I thought this was strange, as I hadn't set it, so I opened the settings and found that it was set to send some dodgy mail to anyone who wrote to me, inviting them to meet online and sending a link to some pics (obviously, I didn't click this link).

Then I checked my sent messages to see how many people it had been sent to, and found that not only had it been sent to people who wrote to me during the night, but also that a different mail had been sent to a whole list of people whose addresses were all very similar:
pers-(then some letters and numbers)@craigslist.org

The mail said only "heyy, i think we can fill each others ad " - with no link. One person actually replied to this wanting to meet up!!!

The subjects headings were replies, like "Re: Fun witty guy Looking - 26 (Central Point)" or "Re: anyone real? - 19", suggesting that they might be replies to dating posts.

I do not look at Craigslist.org, and have not looked at any dating posts anywhere.

How has this happened from my email address, and how safe am I now? It seems to be back to normal now.....

Thanks for any advice you can give.

Guy
 

Answer:Has my Gmail account been hacked??

To read: http://tech.yahoo.com/blogs/null/586...B4eB3JLpcFLZA5

E-mail spoofing

A feature of the protocol that email is based upon is that the email message itself has a number of spaces (data fields) for information like the "intended recipient", "sender's email address" and the "return email address", "CC", "BCC", etc etc. within the email datagram (think of email like a picture postcard with spaces for the sender name and address as well as name and address of the person it is being sent to).

What someone has done (or rather set up a piece of software to do) is send a spam email to so many million email addresses with the sender's FROM email address set to be the same as the "intended recipient's" TO email address. This is done for two main reasons, partly to try to get past email spam filters that filter on known spammer's FROM addresses (or email domains) and partly to hook your interest in getting an email from yourself - which it achieved.

So the spammer is not sending spam email from your email account (that is - they are not hacking into your account and typing messages), but simply using your email address to send spam email to you. Just as if you had got a picture postcard through the post addressed to you with the offer of cheap Viagra but was signed with your name.
You can also try a program like MailWasher.
