    Hello - I'm running Outlook 2013 and I have my g-mail addresses forwarded to Outlook coming into my [email protected] database. My problem is that I am able to receive messages in Outlook that were sent to a gmail address; however, I cannot send from a gmail address in Outlook. I do have accounts set up for the g-mail addresses.

    As far as I can see you have POP disabled and IMAP enabled in Gmail. Yet, in Outlook you're using a POP mail account. So you either have to change it in Gmail to enable POP forwarding. WHich option you select is up to you, based on your needs. Or, you can delete the Outlook account and, after backing up the messages, create a new account as a IMAP.

    Thank you for your reply. OK I enabled POP in Gmail but I still am unable to send from my Gmail address via Outlook.

    My guess is that there's an issue with the SMTP settings in your outgoing server or an issue with security on Google itself. (I tried it and had to allow "Less secure apps" under security when editing the google account.
    There also could be an issue if you have Two-Way authentication enabled.

    Please open the account, in Outlook, and check the settings. Under Outgoing Servers; My Server requires authentication should be checked. Just check "Use same settings as Incoming Server"

    Then under "Advanced" you need to set it up as I did in the attached file.

    Lastly, I don't know if that's really an issue but under Login Information, your Username should NOT have the @gmail.com.

    I have 2 g-mail addresses which are forwarded to Outlook 2013 so that I can send and receive via Outlook. Until recently that worked well. Now something unknown happened that prevents me from SENDING from my g-mail address inside Outlook. Today I started getting the attached message regarding [email protected] which I can't get rid of--the password is correct and I've added it over and over again. Based on things I've read have tried different e-mail settings (see attached for 2 different settings) neither of which work. Thank you

    Are you using two-factor authentication on your Google account(s)?

    You may have to either allow "Less secure apps" in Google or create, if that still exists, a secure mail password.

    Both will be done inside your Security settings in Google.

    Try changing the Outgoing to 587 and the TLS to None or Auto

    I tried that. No change what so ever. As previously stated, the only way I could make it work. Regardless of port settings, encryption etc. was to go to the Google account and allow "Less secure Apps"

    Out of town but previously tried "Less secure apps" but didn't help. I'm not using two-factor authentication.

    Who is your ISP. I've read that Comcast are having issues with their mail servers.

    Also, just for the hell of it. Can you try to send those accounts to not send and recieve. THen recreate the account from scratch. Will it work on a different device, such as a smart phone, tablet, laptop etc.?

    If you have setup gmail as an extra account you can select the account from which you want to send the mail.
    You will however have to set the correct server parameters for gmail to accept the outgoing mail.
    In Outlook you can then click FROM and see the active accounts.
    Hope this puts you on the right track.

    Pardon me. But either you or I have the issue confused. As I see the issue it's that the poster cannot send any emails via Outlook for his/her Gmail account. Not, as I think your post indicates, choosing a gmail account to send from when more than one account exists.

    We'll just have to wait for the poster to tell us which one is the corrrect one :confused:

    Dobeluver,
    What do you mean by "I have my g-mail addresses forwarded to Outlook"?

    Did you set up at Gmail.com the act of forwarding from there or did within Outlook 2013 set the Gmail account to be downloaded to Outlook on your computer?

    Also in Outlook did you set up the accounts using POP or IMAP?

    Sorry for delay. Just got back in town this afternoon. ISP is Spectrum. Interesting happening. Couldn't open Outlook when I got home no matter what I tried. So went to programs/features then repair M/S Office. After doing that not only could I open Outlook but the 2 g-mail addresses that are forwarded to Outlook both worked(send and receive). What it didn't fix is the popup box asking me to "Enter your username and password" (see attached). Only got this for one of the two g-mail addresses. I've re-entered the info but this popup just stays on the screen.

    I've merged both of your threads together. Please do not start more than one for the same issue.

    I've also edited the two email addresses out of your posts. You should neve post email addresses in a public forum as they will be harvested by spammers.
