We could say this is kind of a hidden trick of Gmail. Here is what Google says about it:
Gmail doesn’t recognize dots as characters within usernames, you can
add or remove the dots from a Gmail address without changing the
actual destination address; they’ll all go to your inbox, and only
And the makeuseof article about it.
Microsoft didn't ...
After 8 months of research, I think I found the solution, which is multifaceted.
There are two issues (possibly more) that could be at play. Here is my final solution, which I posted here:
ISSUE 1 - Possible Two Step verification problem and App passwords:

You can simply export/Save-as the calendar from MS Outlook and import it into Google calendar. Note, however, that there does appear to be a restriction with Outlook's repeating events.
From Google's import dialog: "Google Calendar can import event information in ical or CSV (MS Outlook)"
Right click on the calendar you ...
I would do the following:
Use the Office 2010 60 day trial
Setup IMAP access to Gmail in Outlook
Import your PST into Outlook
Then once you have both sitting side-by-side in Outlook, cut and paste the email from your PST account into your Gmail account.
No, this Outlook annoyance (displaying the headers in the wrong sequence) cannot be fixed on the side of webmail providers. At least not on the public ones which do not allow scripting. Sometimes - depending on your use case - using Reply-To is better.
Gmail and Outlook mailboxes work very differently.
While Outlook has folders and allows to add any email to the sent folder, Gmail has views and labels.
Users can't add emails to Sent because it is a view that contains all emails where the Mailbox owner's email address can be found in the From field.
In Outlook create a custom folder (i.e. name ...
Issues with Outlook HTML Rendering and Gmail
I consider myself an email power user and for what seems forever my emails sent from Gmail have looked terrible in Outlook. I have tried every tweak, font change, setting, copy paste or other fix in Gmail and the Gmail fonts still look bad in outlook. I really believe I have a universal fix. It is a work arount ...
I found a really good way to do this is to set up an iCloud account in outlook. I did this to get outlook to sync with my IPod Touch, so I had it in place anyway. Then you can use Smoothsync for iCloud calendar
Note that for Jelly Bean users: To prevent the removal of your accounts on reboot, first install the workaround app described in the information ...
I don't think there is an easy answer here besides having to recreate the recurring meeting.
There are a few Google Product forum discussions on the issue, but no good resolution. The only certain fix (for events in the future) is to turn on 1-way sync (Outlook --> Google)
Here is one of the latest threads about the issue (with no resolution).
You can try ...
The difference between Gmailify and forwarding your mail is that Gmailify will import all your mail and also keep your accounts synchronised. That means that if you make changes to your imported mail (like label changes, reading, or starring emails) these changes will be exported back to your other account.
As you have correctly noted, only one account can ...
OK, seeing the "this computer only" name change gave me a clue. I know how to solve this, but I don't know what caused it. And there's an extra, "keep safe" step to the solution.
A. Create a new folder. For example, my folder was called "A/B/External (This computer only)", and "A/B/Family (This computer only)", so I've created "A/B/New External" and "A/B/...
It is possible to setup a split delivery scenario where email traffic is sent to primary email system. You users are split on different email systems, for example Exchange and Google Apps. If the primary email system have the user, it will send the email to the secondary email system for delivery. This is a very common scenario in Google Apps enterprise ...
Found the solution after more searches ...
Use an Exchange account with this configuration :
Domain\User : Full email adress (e.g. : email@example.com)
Server name : s.outlook.com
Other : Works with SSL on ports 443 and 993
Then, everything will be syncable
I am quite late to respond the thread. Recently I did the same task which I am going to share.
You can backup Gmail account data by using the free Google takeout tool. But it will create .mbox file for backed up emails which cannot be open or imported directly into MS Outlook. For that you need to convert MBOX file to PST format using a reliable tool ...
POP3 is not possible because, I think, it doesn't sync labels.
The only other thing is to setup Outlook to only sync specific labels (with IMAP).
Possibly another mail client (like Thunderbird or Evolution) would perform better?
I'm afraid that this isn't possible. (At least, not right now.)
A quick perusal of the Google Drive support forums shows other people also wanting to have more dynamic mailto: links in their Google Documents. (Surprisingly, this might be easier to do with Google Spreadsheets and the =hyperlink() function.)
Anyway, I did some experimentation.
A mailto: ...
Generally, when users set up IMAP, the biggest complaints focus on the initial syncing from the server in-box to the user's in-box, often taking an extended period while the 1,000's of emails on the server are transferred to Outlook. This is completely avoidable and for many entirely unnecessary. A lot depends upon how often the users rely on indexed ...
What is your current email system? I believe Outlook saves a copy of the user's emails locally so they should be retained even after your current email system is disabled.
If you set up IMAP on the Gmail account you can then set up their Outlook client to interface with the Gmail. However, I'm poking around in our admin panel and I do not see a built-in ...
I was able to successfully migrate the data using a commercial product called Transend. What I learned during the process is that Google throttles this type of transfer and for a large upload, one will eventually stop being able to remain connected to Gmail. It will simply timeout and disconnect. The trick here is to do this in batches... do a bunch of ...
Did you try visiting that URL? It gives you some tips:
In most cases signing in from the web should resolve the issue, but you may also want to try these troubleshooting tips:
Make sure your mail client isn't set to check for new mail too often. If your mail client checks for new messages more than once every 10 minutes, your client might ...
Sync your outlook calendar to office online. See "grant access" section in the link.
Then just subscribe your google account to this calendar.
This method allow only one way synchronization (subscription) from Google Calendar to Outlook.
Just saw that according to the Microsoft website, Outlook 2013 will offer this feature.
Exchange ActiveSync Support Connect Outlook with Exchange ActiveSync, and you’ll receive push-based email, appointments, and contacts via the most popular email servers and services.
