I'm using Gmail for handling all my emails. At work though I was given a new outlook.office account (I don't know what is the precise status of the email accounts supplied by my work, but they are accessed by using something like https://outlook.office.com/owa/?realm=<url of work>).

I want to use the Gmail client, so when I send emails, they will be sent as if they're from my work emails.

This is usually possible with the "Send As" functionality in Gmail account setting. But I can't find how to do it for outlook.office email addresses.

Is this even possible? And how?

  • Presumably this is "Office 365"? AFAIK the "Send Mail As" functionality is the only way to be able to send from Gmail using another address (at least in personal Gmail). In which case, you'll need the SMTP details, as for any external email account.

    Yes, I succeeded to do it already, and indeed your link gives the correct smtp details. Thanks! – Jack May 1 '16 at 0:38

However, this sounds like something you should perhaps check with your place of work. By using an external (non-IMAP) email client your sent emails are not going to be stored with your account, which is going to make it harder for the bosses/administrators, should they need access to your account. Although there should still be an SMTP log on the mailserver.
