using Outlook - iphone - gmail together
Posted on 2011-02-13
Here is my situation.
I have a email address ###@***.net which goes through the server that is hosting my website. I have connected this to MS outlook through pop & smtp. I never see the server email account and I deal with everything through Outlook.
I recently purchased an iphone and I would like to connect my iphone to my Outlook account so that the accounts are the same (ie if I delete or receive an email in outlook it will appear on my iphone and vice versa). I don't have a computer that is on all the time, constantly running outlook.
My solution is to create a new Gmail account and redirect all of my email from the website server to gmail. Then delete the previous outlook connection and create a new one using IMAP between Gmail & Outlook. Then I can use the gmail account on my iphone and it will appear the same as my outlook.
Does this make sense? If anyone was actually able to follow this whole process, can you tell me if this makes sense or if there is an easier solution?
