To configure Microsoft Outlook 2003 to download email from a Gmail account, take the following steps:
smtp.gmail.comfor the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) field. You can leave "Log on using Secure Password Authentication (SPA)" unchecked.
pop.gmail.com, change it to
Gmail, or anything that you wish to use for the name. You can leave the Organization and Reply E-mail fields blank, if you wish. If you want messages you send from this account to have a "reply-to" address that is different from the email address for the account, you can put an email address in the Reply E-mail field.
995and check "This server requires an encrypted connection (SSL)". Port 995 is used for encrypted downloads of email, whereas the default POP3 port of 110 is normally used for unencrypted dowloading of email.
For Outgoing server (SMTP), change the port from
465. Port 25 is the default
Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) port for sending email from an
email client to a server, but port 465 is often used for encrypted sending
Note: the email you download from the Gmail account into Outlook doesn't get deleted from the Gmail email servers no matter whether you check "Leave a copy of messages on the server" under the Advanced tab or leave it unchecked.
