I want to set up Outlook at Gmail so that they work together. I want them to both maintain the same information. So if I get an email in either one it will show up in the other, and if I delete an email in one it will be deleted in both of them.

How do I do this?

Thanks

Your gmail is able to be configured as a pop account. Go in to gmail and set it for pop. Setup a new account in outlook with pop settings.

Depending on where you are the settings are different. Usually pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com will work for most areas.

Here is a link to help with enabling pop in gmail:

Hi, elliottbenzle.

Create or add an account to Outlook that connects to Gmail using IMAP.  This page has detailed instructions.
