Connect MS Outlook 2016 to Gmail

Can I connect my Outlook 2016 to my Gmail account? I like reading my messages from Outlook. Do I connect it the same way I connected my Outlook 2013 to my Gmail account.

Thanks for you assistance.

As far as I know, yes.  Same account and port settings.

You may need to use Control Panel, Mail, Email Accounts to set up the account manually


yes you can connect outlook 2016 to tour gmail account. you can connect it via the same process that you used when connecting outlook 2013. the process is the same.

Even easier: When you launch Outlook, if not prompted, choose File>Account Settings>Account Settings> New
When you type in your Gmail address, Outlook should automatically configure the account so that you can view all of your email and manage via Outlook. You may also add additional email accounts to your Outlook and manage all from your Outlook app.

Make sure that works. Sometime the Outlook 2016 will not allow correct POP settings. It might work for IMAP. Outlook 2016 created some issues a while back so to be very certain, I use the Process above that I described. No chance for error that way.
