    Outlook Fails AUTODISCOVER on GMAIL HOSTED EMAIL DOMAIN


    Outlook 2010 & 2013 (both on Windows 10 Pro) fail to add a pre-existing GMAIL Hosted email account to an Outlook Profile (that also contains an Exchange-based Account).

    However, Surface Pro-based Outlook (version unknown) has no problem with this scenario.

    Anybody have a clue?

    :)

    GUIDE:How to transfer contacts from Microsoft Outlook to Gmail

    I'm sitting here in the office, its the end of the year in the school system, and several employees transferring to alternative counties. With this it brings loads of transferring contacts to take with them from their company phone. Well, this one in particular sparked a guide idea. So here it is, How to transfer Outlook contacts to your Gmail account.


    Step 1: Sign in to your outlook account.
    step 2 In the top left hand corner click File > Import/Export > Export to file > Browse to desired place to save your file > export. Be sure you export the file as .csv (comma separated values)
    Step 3 Log into your Gmail account
    Step 4 Select 'Contacts' In the subsection you will see a 'Import' button on the right-hand side. Click it.
    Step 5 Browse to the location where you saved it > Open it > Click Import.



    I would have provided pictures, but I use neither Outlook or Gmail. Hope someone somewhere gets some use from this. *Toast :toast:

    Outlook 2016 IMAP persists in failing to connect with Gmail


    That is odd; Here is the screen that I see for my account:

    Outlook Fails AUTODISCOVER on GMAIL HOSTED EMAIL DOMAIN [​IMG]

    Are you logging into your account with your PC and do you have 2-step verification turned on for your PC?
    Maybe you can not generate another app specific password from a device that has not been verified via 2-step? Give that a try and see if it makes any difference.

    If that doesn't work then maybe you should try to install the Gmail app for Android on your S4? I have the Gmail app for IOS installed on my iPads and iPhones and it doesn't need an app specific password each time I check my email as long as I stay logged in. When you set it up it uses your normal gmail address and your password then it does the 2-step verification. After that your good to go. Then you could revoke the S4 app specific password and then you might be able to generate one for the Outlook/PC.

    Give these a try.

    How to install outlook express on windows xp with explorer 8?

    This is an awkward problem to solve and one I don't think is worth the time and effort.

    The OP would be better off either using a modern webmail service like gmail or outlook.com or using a modern email client like Windows Live Mail like FX-GMC suggested or Thunderbird from Mozilla. If nothing else, Outlook Distress was notorious for corrupting its data files and losing all your email in one easy step. Not worth it.
