Email setup in Outlook 2013 with Exchange and Gmail Combined Inbox?
Posted on 2015-02-14
I have a question that's driving me crazy (on Valentines' day no less...)
I have a client who wants this set up and I've done it before, but now can't figure out how.
Client has Outlook 2013, connected to an Exchange server 2007 (on sbs2008)
Client also has a gmail account.
Client wants both Exchange and Gmail together in one inbox. (Combined inbox)
I've read a few links and tried changing the data file, etc. to which incoming mail is delivered. No joy. If I try to change a POP3 account to deliver to an OST file, is says "this is not a valid outlook data file."
If I set up Gmail as imap it won't let me change the data file target.
Experts, I have the EXACT same thing set up on the clients OLD laptop under Outlook 2010. Tell me this is no longer possible? I just can't figure out how I did it. All errors any way I go!
So, maybe the data file is not the right thing to be looking at... How do I do this?
