syncing email accounts (gmail) to two computers

This question has suggested answer(s) This question has suggested answer(s)

I upgraded from office 2010 to office 2013 and my contacts and email all converted on my primary computer.  My main work email account is a gmail account.  I've installed 2013 on a new computer for home.  How do I sync my inboxes from work to my computer at home or any other device that I might want to open and see the same send and received emails.

 

Additionally, if I download emails at home that are gmail how do I then see them on my work computer when I go to work?

Thanks

  • Hi Ron,

    According to your description, I understand that you have added a Gmail account in your new Outlook 2013 client, and want to synchronize emails from multiple Outlook clients.

    Actually, Outlook client will synchronize emails from the Gmail server automatically after you add this account in Outlook client. How did you add this account, via POP3 or IMAP? In this situation, you can use the PST file to export and import emails from a different Outlook client. You can refer to this link: http://help.outlook.com/en-us/140/dd401503.aspx

    Moreover, if you do not add an Exchange Online account in Outlook 2013, it is an Outlook 2013 client issue, and I'd like to suggest you post a new thread in the Microsoft Office forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_install?lc=1033&filter=answered&auth=1

  • Hi Bourne,

    This doesn't answer the issue.  I have installed the gmail account on both computers using outlook 2013.  I know that if I want to go thru the trouble to export and import every day when I leave work and go home to my laptop I can get the gmail emails on both computers.  I can currently sync computer 1 with gmail.  However when I go to computer I can't sync computer 2 with the same emails that were previously synced to computer 1.  Is there a way that my emails that were synced on computer 1 with gmail can show up on computer 2????

  • Hi Ron,

    As I have replied before, I'd like to confirm how you added your Gmail account in these two Outlook 2013 clients, via POP3 or IMAP?

  • I installed the gmail using pop3

  • Hi Ron,

    POP3 will only be more complex and provide less functionality, please try to add the Gmail account via IMAP.

    If you add the Gmail account in the Outlook 2013 client by using POP3, and you have not added any Exchange Online accounts in the Outlook client, it is an Outlook 2013 client issue, and I'd like to suggest you post a new thread in the Microsoft Office forum: http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/office/forum/office_install?lc=1033&filter=answered&auth=1
