Tip & How-To about Microsoft Office Professional 2007 Full Version for PC

Gmail on outlook!

To use your Gmail e-mail account in Outlook, you must first make sure POP3 support is enabled in Gmail, and then you can add it to Outlook.
Log in to your Gmail account.
At the top of any Gmail page, click Settings.
In the Mail Settings window, click Forwarding and POP.
I don't see Forwarding and POP
Gmail is turning on POP3 support for users in phases. If Forwarding and POP does not appear, your Gmail account cannot be configured for POP3
support.
In the POP Download section, select Enable POP or all mail or Enable POP only for mail that arrives from now on.
Click Save Settings.
In Outlook, on the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts.
Click Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
Click POP3, and then click Next.
Under User Information, do the following:
In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @gmail.com.
Under Server Information, do the following:
In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type pop.gmail.com.
In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.Gmail.com.
Under Logon Information, do the following:
In the User Name box, type your full e-mail address, including @gmail.com.
In the Password box, type your password.
Select the Remember password check box.
Note You have the option to have Outlook remember your password by typing it in the Password box and selecting the Remember password check
box. Having Outlook remember your password means that you won't have to type your password each time you access the account; however, it also
means that the account is vulnerable to anyone who has access to your computer. Use strong passwords that combine upper- and lowercase letters,
numbers, and symbols. Weak passwords don't mix these elements. Strong password: Y6dh!et5. Weak password: House27. Use a strong password
that you can remember so that you don't have to write it down.
Click More Settings.
On the General tab, under Mail Account, type Gmail.
Click the Outgoing Server tab, and then select the My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication check box.
Select Use same settings as my incoming mail server.
Click the Advanced tab, and then under Server Port Numbers for both Incoming server (POP3) and Outgoing server (SMTP), select the This server
requires an encrypted connection (SSL) check boxes.
Change the Outgoing server (SMTP) port number to 465.
The Incoming server (POP3) port number should change automatically to 995 when you select the This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)
check box.
Click OK.
To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings. If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be
prompted to supply or correct it. Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.
Click Next, and then click Finish.
Notes
Do not select the Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA) check box.
Unless specified by Gmail, all server and address entries are typed in lowercase letters.

This works for both Outlook 2003 and 2007!

gmail problem


You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.

The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.

Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.

Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.

Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."

Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."

Click the radio button beside "Yes, I want to be able to send email as
[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."

Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."

Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.

All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.

Access all your gmail accounts

how do I check my work emails from home


Which email account ??
Access Work Email From Home
Sometimes, the regular workday isn't enough time to get your day's work done.
Taking work home has become a way of life for many people.
If you're one of these people, the ability to access your work email from home is essential to your success.

Ask your workplace's technical support department for help to log on from home.
Some offices set up web access to your email from home, and your tech support department can instruct how to take advantage of this service.
One popular way employers provide this is through Microsoft Web Access.
With Microsoft Web Access, you can log in using any web browser and access your email from any web-enabled computer.
If your office uses Outlook for email, ask if you can set up your home computer to access your email through Outlook.
You will need your login information and your incoming and outgoing mail servers from your tech support department.


If your company provides POP or IMAP access, visit mail2web.
From the homepage, enter your email address and password to log in to your email from any web browser.

Set up a free Gmail email account.
If you use Outlook for email at work, you can automatically forward all email you receive to your Gmail account.
Gmail also provides automatic filtering features that enable you to automatically organize incoming mail.

Ask your IT department if remote computer access is available. Once set up, remote computer access lets you work from home by accessing and controlling your work computer.
Check your work email at home
Sometimes you want to check your work email at home and vice versa using multiple computers. Here is how

Most people find it easiest to use our web based email system to check for messages while not at the office.
Check with your IT guys to find out what's the URL
However, you want to check your email just like at work, using Microsoft Outlook.
This will require some configuration on your part.
Setup for email programs vary, however your email program will ask for the following information: username, incoming server (POP or IMAP), outgoing server (SMTP), return address, name etc


Open Microsoft Outlook, On the Tools menu, click E-mail Accounts
Select Add a new e-mail account, and then click Next.
Select POP3, and then click Next.
In the Your Name box, type your full name the way you want it to appear to other people.
In the E-mail Address box, type your e-mail user name followed by @yourcompany.com.
Under Server Information, do the following:

In the Incoming mail server (POP3) box, type mail.yourcompany.com
In the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) box, type smtp.yourcompany.com.

Under Logon Information, do the following:

In the User Name box, type your user name provided by your company.

In the Password box, type your password.
Select the Remember password check box

To verify that your account is working, click Test Account Settings.
If there is missing or incorrect information, such as your password, you will be prompted to supply or correct it.
Make sure your computer is connected to the Internet.

Hit OK, you're done!
