I have Office 365, and am trying to POP my gmail account. When I tried to set up gmail as a pop account(outlook is 32-bit version) under the default OUTLOOK profile, I would receive the test email in my gmail acct, but get an error message "unable to connect to server".

I then setup gmail as a separate profile, and got error messages unable to send test email and unable to connect to server.

Why is it so hard to do this? I enabled pop in gmail settings, along with imap. I disabled 2 factor identification and enable 3rd party app access. Bu t I am tearing my hair out with this. Please see image of error message attached.
I need assistance in trying to remove all gmail accounts signed into chrome on a public computer using powershell. I tried the following and substituted the parameter "USERNAME" with the real username.

Write-Host -ForegroundColor yellow "Google Chrome Cache Removal - COMPLETE"

Can someone be able to provide some guidance on this?

Many thanks in advance.

I have a domain name which I use for Office 365. My clients share information with my end users through the clients G Suite. My users have to setup a google account in order to access the information. Is there any way to avoid this so that my users can in some way access G suite shares from office 365?

Secondly if there is not any way of accessing other than a google account can you tell me the impact of registering the Office 365 domain name in G suite so I have some control over the google accounts. I am unsure if I register the domain in G suite if the google accounts that are already working will stop working or if they simply show up as a managed account in some way under my new G suite tenancy. Thanks
We have a client using Windows 7 on a laptop to access his Gmail account using Chrome.  When Gmail is selected, The following message is displayed: Your connection is not private.

We received this message when using WiFi Public network and with a wired connection on a private network.  If we open Gmail with Internet Explorer, we get a message about the certificate was not issued by a trusted authority.  The certificates on the computer appear valid and current.  How do we verify the certificates for Gmail/Google?

We have tried suggestions found with an internet search but unable to resolve issue.  Any suggestions will be appreciated.

Mac OUTLOOK client no longer lets me move email messages from my work Office365 account to my gmail account or another work office365 account. Messages can now only be moved to folders within the same email account. It was not like this before. Im sure updates from Microsoft killed this feature. Ive uninstalled, reinstalled and patched and nothing. This feature works great on a PC OUTLOOK client. Any ideas?
Now that I've backed up all my Google+ "stuff", with Google+ closing, how do I access the data I've downloaded? Most important are e-mails(I have a standard Gmail account, although I pay for extra storage).

Of top interest to me are Gmail, Youtube, and Google Drive. Takeout also backed up Google Play Store, where a I have a couple of purchases. Is Play Store going away too?

What Google+ support pages relating to this do you think are a priority to read? Since it is closing tomorrow, I'm giving this question highest priority.

Hi Guys,
This is a strange one. Gmail won't show "<img src='data:image/png;base64, etc. etc. " as an image — just the code!
Sending a group newsletter to results in a message that features the data:image code — not the image.
Gmail functions properly when we send email with data:image using an email client such as Thunderbird, but gmail fails when sending a mass mailing using PHP.
Got any idea of what's going on and how to solve it?

GMail is bouncing back inbound emails when the local-part contains an accent.  For example:
sté instead of
Our GMail environment is US/English.

We do not have relationships with the senders.   The few we contacted were 1) unaware they shouldn't use accents and 2) told use their French spellchecker replaced automatically...

Hello guys
In reference to Gmail
Is there a way to delete sent messages but not delete a message that is in another label?
I send an email to xyz.
This xyz email gets put under the label "important"
I then delete all sent mail
But I don't want the xyz email under "important" deleted.

When I send an email to xyz - it is put in the label "important". Xyz replies to me. I then delete sent messages. The xyz email in the "important" folder is not deleted.
This is current behavior. And this is what I'm trying for with messages that have not been replied to.

I hope I've explained this. It seemed difficult to convey my meaning.
Link my social media icons in my Gmail signature to my social media pages.

I have had no trouble getting the images to be created but cannot seem to get them to link to the specific pages.

Assistance is greatly appreciated.

The Acronis Global Cyber Summit 2019 will be held at the Fontainebleau Miami Beach Resort on October 13–16, 2019, and it promises to be the must-attend event for IT infrastructure managers, CIOs, service providers, value-added resellers, ISVs, and developers.

Exchange 2016 Environment, Server 2016.  Moved the server over the weekend and had some trouble with Email delivery.  It seems to be working except for some email from the outside get queued and never delivered.  I have not received an NDR yet.  250 2.6.0  Queued Mail for Delivery.

It truth the email is not in any queue on the Exchange 2016 server.  Email from GMail and other domain does go through.  Any help greatly appreciated.

Just for Clarity, I do have an Exchange 2010 server on site that is not participating in mail routing (or should not be)  There is nothing in the queues there either.

This was working fine at the old location for several years.  During the move, I had added a Public DNS server to the network card and that caused NO mail flow.  I fixed it, but I also noted that the fix did not stay fixed.  I had to go into the properties of the server and select "Custom Dns Lookup" and add the local AD server IP for DNS.  This has got the mail partially flowing.

I have read that ISP can effect email delivery with TLS settings but I have not seen the entire process to investigate if that is the cause here.
I have one desktop with Outlook 2016 and we are trying to add the user's GMAIL account into Outlook. After several tries, I can see test emails sent to the my gmail accounts using port 587 TSL. But IMAP connection still not working. IMAP connecton is on port 993 SSL - the error is secure connection cannot be establish with server.

On Gmail, I have already turned on POP and IMAP and I have turned on Basic Auth (allow lesels secure apps)

I then installed Thunderbird on that computer and then setting up the account, I get this strange certification error (pls see attached). I have blurted out the CN name. The CN Name is not Google or gmail, etc.

1) Do you reckon that the problem could be due to this certificate? Looks like a self-signed one
2) How do I locate this certificate? Its not installed on the computer, DC, or the Web servers? Is there a way to find where this is installed on the network
3) Assuming its not the certificate issue, how do get Outlook to connect to Gmail.
My client's email is constantly blocked from Their domain has a "bad" reputation on google's postmaster tools.

I am looking for a service that can help fix this problem. I found one company called "", but they only work with Linux servers, and my client's email is on Office365 (Exchange).

I have tried to help, but I am giving up, as I am not expert enough in this.

Can you recommend a service that can solve this problem?

Thank you.
I have a client that uses one gmail address to contact clients. It is on many computers and they use Outlook IMAP to access gmail. As of today it stopped connecting. On my computer I get a message that less secure apps is disabled but it is enabled. I toggled that setting but still not working

I can not figure out how to get access to this account through outlook.

I am using the same settings that have been working for years.

Is there anyway to get support from Google for Gmail?
Gmail not working with Outlook. I have set Gmail to use IMAP but it is still not loading email into Outlook. I have tried on a desktop and mobile. Anyone had luck?

we are using Mobile Device Manager Plus MSP. Our goal is to get mobile devices that are secure with no unwanted app and no change of system settings. The devices have only company email access. The phones are company owned so no BYOD.
For us the Kiosk mode was a proper solution for this.

Now we have 2 problems with email.
Since Android 8 Gmail seams to be the default email-config-setup app. So if you push the active sync settings and MDM will setup the password it will always open Gmail.
How can we change this or is there a work around?

We don't want to use the Gmail App, because the accounts settings are "open". This means you can add other private mail accounts.
So the other question is, what are other (enterprise) Mail Apps than can be configured with only the company active sync server?

Maybe the Mail App will also solve the first question :)

Thank you.
