I need to create several hundred email addresses. I would prefer to create Google accounts and use the Gmail addresses. These need to be free accounts and not G Suite for Business accounts.

These are not for spamming or scamming. Rather, we are a non-profit organization configuring several hundred Kindle devices for students in remote areas around the world. To do this, we need to create hundreds of Amazon accounts using hundreds of unique email addresses. While the creation of the Amazon accounts will be laborious, I think I can do it. We will configure one device per Amazon account, and each account will purchase 60 books. I would like to use Gmail addresses/Google accounts for email, as I am not yet sure if we will be using Kindle, Kindle Fire, or the Kindle app on an Android tablet. If we go with the app, then we will need to use Google Play, which will require a Google Account.

Once each device is loaded and configured, the email/Gmail/Google account as well as the Amazon account (and loaded device) will be handed over to the end user who will take ownership of the Amazon and Google account. We will be providing these as gifts; we are not reselling accounts and devices.

What is the best way to create many Google accounts without raising red flags? In the end, we need around 250 accounts. We don't need to create them all at once.

Hi

I am building the following clickable button link and it looks good and works well in most emailing systems except gmail where it just appears as a normal hyperlink with no border. Why would that be?


            Dim oLinkAccept As String = "http://SteelYard.azurewebsites.net/offers_by_me?oOfferID=" & oOfferID & "&oCounterofferAcceptDecline=Accept"

            oHBody = oHBody & "<a href=" & oLinkAccept & " style='padding: 8px 12px; border: 1px solid #006400;border-radius: 2px;font-family: Helvetica, Arial, sans - serif;font-size:   14px; color: #006400;text-decoration: none;font-weight:bold;display: inline-block;' >ACCEPT</a>"

We have a user that has setup gmail in his Outlook 2016.  We seem to have an issue syncing his sent folder.  If we send from Outlook it shows both in Outlook and gmail (web) but if he sends from gmail (web) it does not sync back to Outlook.  Outlook would not be my choice to use with gmail but he wants to use it.  What would be the reason for not syncing back to Outlook?

I have an old USA.NET email account, which I need to stop using.   I want to have emails to the USA.NET account automatically forwarded to my GMAIL account, though I don't want the senders alerted to the new address.  How can this be done?

Thanks,

Phil

Is it possible to share iCloud contacts with different Apple ID users?

If not I have a client using GDocs business account and it's working great. The streamline process is nice. The one area that I need to resolve is how to share her contacts in iCloud with staff. Can these be shared with Gmail (not exported - this is not sharing). It's easier to leave them in iCloud so her iPhone is updated as well.

Gmail has this stupid concept called "labels". I call them groups. I CANNOT figure out how to add an existing contact to a group (label).

How is that done?

Hello Experts,
I would like to be able to send emails from my own application
not depending from google gmail or nothing...
just my app sending the email

Is this possible, and if there is an example?
Right now using visual studio basic and visual c#
But we could use anything you suggest.
 As long as it gives us the control and we do not depend on third party services.

the thing is gmail automatically block itself if not used constantly and also present different challenges that change constantly.
Regards!

Just wanted to add that right now our apps send emails programatically using gmail services,
so we want to get rid of that dependance...
Thank you

In migrating our email from gmail to office 365, I am setting up our gmail account to our Outlook client using the IMAP protocol.  Will that work?  My impression is IMAP just syncs what is on the email server and once the connection is disconnected then we lose access to that information.  Will IMAP produce a PST file or does that happen only with POP3?  Once we do the cutover of services, I don't want to risk losing access to the gmail email because I will need it in order to begin syncing up the emails to the Office 365.


At the end of the day, should I be using IMAP for this purpose, or is POP3 a better option?

I am migrating to Office 365. When I stop my gmail services, what happens with all my emails?  Is there a difference between stopping my account and deleting my account in gmail?  How long it email retained for before its deleted permanently?  Also, can I still login to my email to check any missing emails that didn't migrate over?

Your never know if you are getting the whole story but a lady said the other day that Experian emailed her and said her social security number was found on the dark web and suggested she change all her passwords. Here is where she gets fuzzy.... she want to change her Microsoft password but before she could do that it forced her to change her gmail password. Simple enough.

   But now her Outlook 2016 keeps bouncing when trying to send/receive. Invalid account credentials. The first thing I had her do was go to gmail and log in to make sure she has a valid email and password. She could log in so her email address and password are fine. We just can't get Outlook to work with them. I have deleted her Outlook Profile. We changed her Gmail password again just for something else to try. I have triple checked the POP settings for gmail. I even let Outlook Autodiscover. It chose IMAP by default bet even then failed to log in to the IMAP account, I am at a loss.....

I have 5 user gmail accounts that need to be migrated over to office 365.  What's the preferred method and will I be able to transfer their calendars and contacts?  Are there any good AND SIMPLE resources?  Are there any items that DO NOT transfer over?

Thanks

I have two gmail accounts
One personal, and one for managing a bridge's club
I think that I configured both gmail parameters similarly (I checked, but there are so many options ...)
I use a program of my own to send email to members of the club.
When I use my personal credentials, no problem
When I use the credentials of my club account, I get this error :
https://support.google.com/mail/?p=BadCredentials a22sm4217100eje.61 - gsmtp
(the a22... stuff is different at each occurring error)
I already checked that on the issuing computer, the gmail club account is recognized (and I can access the mailbox via gmail interface in Firefox)
Whatelse shall I check ?

Hello, I have a Google suite customer that I am trying to connect their account using imap into outlook 2016 but outlook keeps giving me an error of wrong username and password. I turn on imap in the setting in the Google suite account and I log into the account using the browser to confirm the password is correct no luck. Then I tried my personal Gmail account that I use within my outlook at my desk and same problem. Any suggestions

In the gmail app on my iPhone, I have four personal and business emails set up.  I'd like to be able to see them each separately.

When I open gmail in my Chrome browser, I can "Add account" to see my separate inboxes in separate tabs in my browser.

So on my iPhone I'd like to be able to do the same thing.  I'm sure it used to be this way, but now I'm seeing "All Inboxes".

Recently in my Outlook iOS and also in GMail, I notice more companies using a logo as their sender image, avatar, whatever the terminology is. We are on Office 365 Enterprise. I don't see anything in the Admin portal related to this, nor have I had any luck searching via Google. I've only found tips on how to make this happen for companies using corporate Gmail, but I'm pretty confident most of these big companies don't have that setup.

I've seen tips that some email systems, possibly O365 included, look for an existing Gravatar, but I can't seem to set one up for my company. Only individually (the personal Gravatar I've had for years using my company email address.)

Can anyone help instruct me, or at least help with the correct terminology so I can search more effectively?

Thanks.

I need to setup dual delivery  (not split delivery) of emails where Office 365 will be primary and Gmail will be secondary.  Basically I need to send an email to an address which is hosted in Office 365 and also in Gmail, but the MX records point to the Office 365 account.  I then need that email to appear in both O365 and in Gmail.

I've tried using connectors in O365 without success.

Any help appreciated thanks.

Really at a loss here.  In the past 6 months emails from our domain "mastersvb.org" is going to peoples spam  or not getting to them at all.  Mainly with gmail, bellsouth, and yahoo.  I have looked at all black lists and we are clean.  I have done all the mx records checks I can think of.  We recently moved to office 365 cloud exchange.

Is there a tool or mechanism to allow a W10 Home system running with 2 separate user accounts to easily switch from one active application in User 1 to click on "something" (ex. taskbar icon) that will go directly to an active application running in the User 2 account?  Example...User 1 is running GMAIL and it is open and active.  User 2 has previously opened their account and started AOL.  AOL is active and open in User 2's account.  User 1 is OK with User 2 clicking on "something" on User 1's window that will jump directly to User 2's task.  Of course, User 1 will want to click on something that puts his/her app back to whatever he/she was working on.  I have not been able to find anything that will allow this without having to input credentials etc.

I plan to allow my users to add guests to my O365 system. The challenge is when I review the guest its difficult to identify them as belonging to any specific user. Is there a way to better identify guests eg so I would know X guest is associated with Y internal user. As the guests grow I could see it turning into a real challenge especially for Gmail users.

I can't log in to my Gmail account.

I've had a Gmail account for quite some time now, and have never had any problems logging in.

Yesterday, I typed in "gmail" into my Chrome browser (which I have done many times before) and was taken to the page that had he headline "Add Gmail to Your Google  account." The box on the right says "Choose Your Gmail address," and if I enter the one I've been using, up pops "That username is taken. Try another."

Now, maybe my search skills are diminishing, but I can't find another page that will let me access my Gmail account.

What am I doing wrong, or what the heck is going on here?
