Outlook Beta

Microsoft are currently offering a new look and feel to Outlook (referred to as Outlook Beta). The new version changes the wording on some of the options. To try to account for this, we have included the new terminology in parentheses.

    (Outlook Beta:  Mail --> Sync email)

  4. In Connected accounts, choose "Gmail."

  5. On the following page, choose how you want to store imported email, and click "OK."

  6. You will be redirected to login to Gmail.  Enter your address and login with your Carleton credentials.
  7. Gmail will ask you to allow Microsoft access to your Gmail account.  Click "allow."
