Manage all your email accounts, including Outlook, from Gmail. So you can do it.

Gmail is the most used email manager in the world and, as we all know, it is the work of Google.

The usual thing is to have more than one Gmail account, for example, one for personal performance and another for the work section. You can too have accounts on other platforms such as Outlook or Yahoo, which makes it difficult to manage all the emails received from the different apps and websites of these services.

To help you, in this article we are going to tell you how you can view emails from other accounts from Gmail, both new and old. Thus, you can manage all your accounts from the same platform, regardless of whether they are from Gmail, Outlook or other services.

We already saw how you can use multiple accounts in Gmail for Android, so this time we are going to focus on how to do it on your pc.

View emails from other accounts in Gmail

So you can add the emails of all your accounts in Gmail.

How to import all emails to Gmail

To import all the emails from your accounts to Gmail, both old and new, you must do a series of changes to account settings that you are going to import and in the Gmail one.

As Google clarifies, you can only move the messages from the other account, not the folders or labels. The procedure to get all the messages from an alternative Gmail account on your computer consists of the following steps.

Enable POP access on the other account

The first thing you should do to import the new and old messages from an account is to make sure that it has enabled POP access. For our example we have chosen an Outlook account, so we will explain how to enable it in this service.

Access your Outlook account and enter "Settings" using the gear button in the upper right corner. Then, click on the option "See all Outlook settings", in the lower part of the window that has been displayed on the right.

This way you will access the complete configuration of your account. The steps you must follow from now on are very simple. Click on Mail> Synchronize email and select the "Yes" box in the section "Allow devices and applications to use POP".

In this window you must enable POP access for the other email account.

Add the account to Gmail

Once POP access is enabled in the account you want to add to Gmail, it is time to open the Google mail platform to follow the process there.

Once inside Gmail, click on the gear icon in the upper right corner and then on "See all settings". On the new page, click on the section "Accounts and import" and then in the option "Add an email account".

The option "Add an email account" is where you must click.

This will open a new window in the browser in which you must enter the email address you want to add. Click on "Next" and choose if you want to import the emails from the other account to your Gmail inbox or just link both accounts with Gmailify -you keep both addresses and you can manage the messages of both in the Gmail inbox- .

After that selection, click on "Next" and enter the password for your account. To finish the process, click on "Add Account" and all emails from this alternate account will appear in Gmail.

How to import only old emails

In the event that you have created a new Gmail account and are no longer going to use the old account, you may want to see in the new the messages of the previous account.

For import only old emails, follow these steps.

Enter the Gmail settings

As we did in the previous procedure, in this you must also access the Settings section. You know, inside Gmail, click on the gear button in the upper right corner. In the window that appears on the right, click on "See all settings".

Perform the import

Once inside the configuration page, click on the section "Accounts and import". In this case, you must click on the option "Import emails and contacts".

This will open a new browser window in which you must first enter the email address from which you want to import old messages. After a few seconds of verification of the account, you will have to confirm the import of the emails logging into the other account.

Click on "Continue" and a new window will open in which you will have to give your consent for the Gmail import tool to access the information.

Scroll down, click on "Yes" and you will reach the final step of the process, a window in which you will have to select the content you want to import: contacts, emails and new mail for the next 30 days -to receive the emails that are arriving to the other account while you change. When you have decided, click on "Start import" and the old emails from the other account will be sent to Gmail.

Import old emails from Gmail

The import process can take a few minutes.

If at some point you no longer need to see the emails of other accounts in Gmail, just delete it to stop receiving new messages.

To do this, open Gmail and go to Settings> See all settings> Accounts. Look for the section "Check email from other accounts" and click on the button "Delete" next to the account from which you no longer want to receive messages.

Those explained so far are simple processes, but they can help you enormously when it comes to manage the different email addresses you use every day. You see, it is not necessary to leave Gmail to see the emails of all your accounts, even those of Outlook.
