1.) Open Windows Mail and click Tools at the top of the page.

2.) Click Accounts.

3.) Click Add and then select E-mail Account. Then click Next.

4.) Enter in the name you want to be sent along with all the e-mails you send out.

5.) Type in your Gmail e-mail address (for example,

6.) In the Incoming Mail Server box, enter “”

7.) In the Outgoing E-mail Server box, enter “”

8.) In the Account Name field, enter in your complete Gmail e-mail address.

9.) Enter your Gmail password in the Password field.

10.) Click Next and then Finish.You’ll then be taken back to the Accounts screen.

11.) Highlight the new e-mail account and click Properties.

12.) Click the Advanced tab.

13.) Check the two boxes marked “This server requires a secure connection (SSL).”

14.) Set the Outgoing Mail field to 465.

15.) Next, click on the Servers tab and select “My server requires authentication.”

16.) Click Apply and then OK.

That’s it. Happy e-mailing!
