I have two POP accounts in Outlook 2013 and when I went to add a third, a Google IMAP account, Outlook stopped responding.

Before I go any further I'd just like to know if this is possible ... or even advised.

Thanks, Dave Horne

I should also add that I spent considerable time trying to set up Outlook 2013 to imap with gmail\google mail following various web sites on how to accomplish this - manually setting up the account, etc. I went step by step, Manual setup or additional server types ... and changed my gmail settings to imap as well ... nothing worked.

What I wound up doing was simply linking my gmail account to my primary e-mail account, so every time an e-mail arrives at my gmail account, I receive a copy at Outlook (at my primary e-mail account).

This to me seems like a good alternative. I also do not expect much traffic at my gmail account at all.

Diane, I didn't check all the recommendations at the link Google provided.

As I wrote I simply linked my gmail account to my primary e-mail account. If I pursue this further and need help, I'll come back for advice.

Thanks, Dave Horne
