Set up an Office 365 account on GMail

This article was born from the difficulties encountered in setting up a Microsoft Office 365 mail account on the Gmail mail client on a smartphone. But

Reading Office 365 in Gmail is not recommended.

In the Gmail add account screen, the most obvious attempt is to add the account using “Exchange and Office 365”.

You will see the mailbox added correctly and working but we have encountered problems: in some accounts on Gmail you do not see all the mail folders in the mailbox.

Solution

The solution is to perform an installation in imap.

Install the account using “Other”:

Once you have entered your email account, the “Manual Configuration” button appears.

Push it. The procedure will ask you in sequence:

password
address of the mail arrival server: outlook.office365.com
address of the mail receiving server: smtp.office365.com

The procedure does not require the specification of ports. For the sake of completeness, we recall all the parameters of the Microsoft Office 365 imap and smtp.

IMAP settings – Server name: outlook.office365.com – Port: 993 – Encryption method: SSL

SMTP settings – Server name: smtp.office365.com – Port: 587 – Encryption method: TLS or STARTTLS

Important

By doing this you deactivate the synchronization of address book, calendar and email. To solve it, simply go to the Outlook app, in the account and reactivate the synchronization.

But remember that the best thing for Office365 is to use the Outlook app on smartphones. Reading Office 365 in Gmail is not recommended.

Aprire file .pst con Outlook

Se avete un file .pst di una vecchia versione di outlook potete velocemente visualizzarlo con Outlook 365.

Andate su “File” in alto a sinistra. Cliccate su “Apri ed Esporta” sul menu a sinistra e quindi su “Apri file di dati di Outlook” più a destra. Si aprirà la finestra di esplorazione del computer; cercate il vostro file .pst e cliccate su “Ok”. La cartella del file pst comparirà subito nel vostro Outlook.

Ricerca nell’archivio email

Per cercare una particolare email in questo archivio, potete usare la cartella ricerca in alto a destra, avendo l’accortezza di selezionare come spazio di ricerca “sottocartelle”: outlook cercherà su tutto l’archivio.
