The company I work for uses MS Exchange Server for emails but my workstation is iMac with Entourage 2007 installed, which is very poorly designed for work flow. I have added my work email account (ex: me@mycompany.com) to the Gmail successfully, received verification etc. but it only works in part.


  1. (works) When I create a new message from Gmail interface with me@mycompany.com and send to me@mycompany.com I can receive it in Entourage from my local computer.

  2. (doesn't work) But if I create a new message from Entourage or MS Exchange web server, the message just don't get to the Gmail interface.

    (works) if I create new message from Gmail interface and send to my colleague, she can receive it and reply, and I can get her replies in Gmail interface as well.

I believe there is firewall or sort of thing, the challenge I face is without IT guy turn off anything for me (wanna-be super user) what's the work around way? of because no forwarding method, because it will create a mess.

  • If the gmail account is a work email then its not a firewall problem. Based on what you describe you don't have a software firewall. Sounds like the IT guy needs to help you with this problem. – Ramhound Mar 29 '14 at 18:57

  • @Ramhoud IT guy simply just told me, gmail doesn't support MS exchange anymore, and he can't help me further, because this is fall out of his service. – Chiali Mar 29 '14 at 23:28
