Setting up gmail.com or outlook.com email accounts


[link to this post]
 
Normally I use my own domain for email addresses using either my AAISP or TSOhost account. Now recently to enable portability between a group of users, I have been asked to set up a gmail.com account or similar.

Ideally I want to be able to send/receive the emails via my Office Outlook 2007. So far, whilst able to use the respective webmail accesses, I cannot get Outlook 2007 to log in to either of gmail or outlook.

End up with being asked for my password and then having it rejected. The passwords I'm using are correct since I needed same to log into the web version.

I know that Outlook 2007 is not the latest, but in the case of gmail, that even offers instructions for its use with Eudora which I used to use with Win 95 back in the day! And has since ceased.

(I don't want to use Eudora, just quoting that as an example.)

My PC is running Win7 Pro 64 bit

Cheers!

Googled "Outlook 2007 Gmail" and got this:

The fix seems to be explained in the last response at the foot of the thread.

I too had Googled and it seems the ability for Outlook to be accessed by Outlook 2007 was designed out a couple of years ago.

Similarly, it does not seem possible to have two independent Outlook.com accounts on the same PC (well for the same user) such as a personal account and another in a different name. Which is what I wanted so that in due time I can hand over that other account to whoever supersedes me.

Cheers!
