Once you select that, a new window opens on your screen. On that window, select the tab ‘E-mail’ and select ‘New’ which will open another window where you need to enter your details. You need to give in details like name, E-mail address, and password for Outlook 2010 to login and fetch your email from Gmail server. You can now jump with joy.
So that is how you configure your Gmail account on your Microsoft Outlook 2010. Now you have an inbox where you’d be able to see emails from multiple accounts instead of logging on to several platforms to access them.
