I have a Gmail account that I would like to use to view my emails from a Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access account.

  1. How can this be done?

  2. Can the emails directed to the Gmail account be separated into a different folder from the Outlook account?

  3. Is it possible to send an email from the Gmail account then as if I sent it from the Outlook account?

  4. And how can this be done?

QUESTION 1-In the case of Microsoft Office Outlook Web Access, it does not look possible for gmail to access them. Gmail appears to need POP available, and my administrator says that without IMAP or better it is a waste of time. So you have to use microsoft explorer to access the web mail for the full set of options to appear and then set up a rule for forwarding or redirecting email to an address (instructions).

QUESTION 2-There are filters to add tags for organising the mails according to the to/from (etc) features or the emails.



  1. Top right click on the cogwheel and on the parts that open below click on account settings
  2. Below the word SETTINGS, click on the tab 'Accounts and Settings'
  3. The section 'Send mail as' is the relevant section
  4. click on 'Add another email address you own'
  5. input the name you have on registered on your other email account (non-gmail) and the email address and click next
  6. click on 'Send through strath.ac.uk SMTP servers'
  7. you will need to put the username and password you use to access the non-gmail account and the SMTP Server address which may not be the default. The smtp address is usuall known to you if you set it up, or ask the admin somehow or the institution that set it up might have a webpage listing it, search it. I have left the port and security connection as default.
  8. If the information is correct it should work, and when you send an email for a new composition there is a list of addresses you can choose from, the default and the new one. When the new one is chosen the previous/default is not visible.
