Had to change ISPs and that included a change of Email providers.
Have gotten everything else up and running as advertised but still missing the key to getting the two clients to play nice with Gmail
Thanks

What specific problem(s) are you having with Outlook? If it's simply a matter of how to set it up, a Google search will return more help then you'll ever need. Here's a good link: http://www.emailaddressmanager.com/tips/outlook-gmail.html

Allan,

Thanks

After I review the information you've provided I'll report back.

A quick look appears to be the steps I've taken without success.

Or it may just be I'm going to have to claim a senior moment AND operator error :blush:

I've certainly never had any trouble setting up imap accounts in Outlook

I was going for POP with both clients. Not a requirement but seemed like an 'easier' way to do it

gmail uses the imap protocol and must be configured as such.
