Follow the instructions below on how to add Gmail to your Outlook.
Setup Gmail on Outlook with G-Suite
The preferable and easiest way to add Gmail on Outlook nowadays is through G-suite.
Navigate to G-Suite for Microsoft Outlook. Select the button Download G Suite Sync.
G-Suite starts downloading and it will appear in your downloads folder or in your downloads section on your relevant web browser. We are using Google Chrome for our example so we select the downloaded file in the browser window.
You’ll see G-suite is installing onto your computer.
A screen pops up promting you to sign in with your Google Account. Enter in your relevant Gmail email address and press Continue.
Your default browser will automatically open and ask you to sign into G-suite. Press the relevant Gmail account you want to sync to Outlook.
On the following page, you are advised that G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook wants to access a number of Gmail account items.
Scroll down and select Allow on the bottom of the screen to continue.
The Sign in process is complete as authorization has been granted.
An additional icon should have appeared in your Windows taskbar and the following popup. You can import data from an existing profile (you would need to navigate to the relevant PST file) and you can also send crash reports to Google if you so wish. If you are happy with the default settings, click Create profile.
We are prompted that G Suite Sync setup is complete. Select Start Microsoft Outlook.
Outlook opens and we can see that our Contacts, Calendar and Mail are steadily synchronising to Outlook. Depending on the size of the mailbox you are syncing to Outlook, it may take awhile for all emails to download.
