This tutorial demonstrates how to configure Outlook 2010 on Windows for @colorado.edu Gmail accounts.
You may need to enable IMAP for your account prior to configuration of your email client (https://mail.google.com). To do this:
From the File Menu, select the Info tab and click Add Account.
Click on Manually configure server settings or additional server types and click Next.
In the User Information section, enter your name and e-mail address (CULoginName@colorado.edu).
On the Outgoing Server tab, check the box next to My outgoing server (SMTP) requires authentication.
Enter the following for the Log on using fields:
*Note: Be sure that the username does not have @colorado.edu included or you mail will not be able to send.
*Note: If you are experiencing issues connecting with port 25 for Outgoing server (SMTP), try changing this to port 587.
Outlook 2010 will test your account settings. If it completes successfully, click Close.
*Note: If it does not complete successfully, review this document and check your account settings again. Your outgoing mail server settings will be slightly different from your logon information.
Once you reach the Congratulations screen, click Finish.
You should now see your Gmail account and be able to send and receive messages.
