    Hi everyone

    I was wondering how can I view my emails from gmail and yahoo in outlook(not the emails from my ISP mail box)? how do I configure outlook to do that?
    The outlook version is outlook 2003.

    Thanks

    Glad it was helpful.
    You could get all g-mail from account no.2 forwarded to g-mail acount no.1 using the tools in the gmail account 2. Then set up gmail account 1 to go to your outlook folder.
    I think that would be one way of doing it.

    You'll use the "rules and alerts" option in the tools menu. I don't have outlook 2003 handy, but essentially you'll look to set up a rule where messages coming TO your gmail address is moved to the Folder you've created for it.

    You will need to create one account per email address that you want to pull into outlook -- so if you have 2 gmail addresses, you'll need 2 accounts.

    To create new folders, simply right-click on Inbox at the left pane, and select "new folder". Give it a name, and use those folder names in creating your rule.

    It may be a noob question, but how do I create a rule that says "when an emails comes to(gmail account), move it to(new folder name)" without making any contacts or something like that, just this simple rule?
