Is it possible to have more than one email account come into Outlook.  Specifically, could I set up a Hotmail account as well as a gmain account and have both come into Outlook?  Thanks

Yes. I have a half dozen.

You need to decide if you want a PST file for each account or all the email in ONE account. I use the latter.

For the former, open Outlook, go to the new Account section, set up the account and use the Wizard.

For the latter, open Outlook, go to the new Account section, set up the account and do NOT use the Wizard. As you work through, point the email account to the PST file you wish to use.

Set up as POP or IMAP.

Hi
As per the information and details provided by you, to set up Hotmail & a Gmail account in Outlook 2010, please follow these steps: -

All the Outlook settings are very similar. Only the server settings will change. At first you will only have to provide your name, email, user name and password.

These are the server settings for the most common email providers: -

Gmail Settings: -

•      Log In to Gmail.
•      Click on the Configuration button at the top of the page.
•      Select Settings.
•      Select Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
•      Enable POP and select what you wish to occur when accessing POP emails.

These are the Outlook settings necessary to configure Gmail in Outlook:

Incoming mail server (POP3): pop.gmail.com | port 995 | with an SSL encrypted connection
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.gmail.com | port 465 | with an SSL encrypted connection | requires authentication


Hotmail/ Outlook.com settings

•      Log in to Hotmail.
•      Click on the Configuration button at the top of the page.
•      Select More mail settings.
•      Select connect devices and apps with POP.
•      Enable POP and select what you wish to occur when accessing POP emails.

These are the Outlook settings necessary to configure Hotmail in Outlook:

Incoming mail server (POP3): pop3.live.com | port 995 | with an SSL encrypted connection
Outgoing mail server (SMTP): smtp.live.com | port 587 | with an TLS encrypted connection | requires authentication

Thanks and regards

Alexa, as I understand your instructions, in order for me to forward my gmail, I would have to have an email address at Microsoft Outlook.  What I want to do is use Outlook as a recipient for emails (regardless of origin) e.g. Hotmail, gmail, etc.  -  So are you saying that I first have to set up an email account within Outlook so that these other emails can be forwarded to it? Thank you

You do not need to forward anything just for email to come into Outlook from a source as you have mentioned. Follow what I said to do.

If this is not correct, then please clarify your requirements. Look at the outlook.com link I posted.

John, I'm a bit confused by above comment:
Source document is apparently:  http://www.setup-outlook.com/
When I clicked on that, it appears to be advertisement offering to download something so I didn't go any further.  I did start the process of creating a new account and am sending a pic of where I am on it.  Where do I get the numbers/and or other information that is missing from this pic?  I, like you want to have all mail coming into one single account.Pic-1.JPG

So in your screenshot above, where the radio button says New Outlook data file, choose the OTHER one "Existing data file" and point to that file (you will browse for it).

I do this and ALL my mail goes into ONE file. Hooray!

John, I did that but it still wants 1) Incoming Mail Server and 2) Outgoing (SMTP).  Where do I find that?

For Hotmail (Outlook.com) you need the Hotmail connector for Office 2010

For Gmail, you need the Gmail settings

I hope this helps.

John, didn't know you had responded so I went on line and Google had very helpful instructions which allowed me to create the account.  FYI, don't know how, but I downloaded 161 updates for that XP machine we all worked so hard on.  Now it runs like a brand new one.  Thank you for all your patience.  As you can see I am just trying to learn my way through all of this and am really enjoying it.
