Add Gmail to Outlook 2016 G Suite Email Guide

This is the most recommended, no fail guide on how to Add Gmail to Outlook 2016 with G Suite Email Guide too. Be sure to bookmark this page and share it to your friends. How sure am I that this will work? Because it is my job to get this done! G Suite is different to Gmail that is why it is paid in the first place. There are security features that prevents you in adding the email to any device you want. But if you will follow my guide I am 100% confident that it will work.



Things to consider before following the steps

  • This guide is specifically written for G Suite Email customers
  • If you own a Gmail.com you may need to skip some of the steps here
  • Both Gmail and G Suite Email has Allow Less Secure Apps option
  • You need to be an administrator to access Admin Console
  • This will not work for Gmail or G Suite email with 2 step verification
  • Your domain’s MX records should be pointed to Google
  • Read everything because one missed steps will ruin it ūüôā

Gmail and G Suite email Recommended Setup

 

1st. Allow Less Secure Apps for G Suite email

Google may block sign-in attempts from some apps or devices that do not use modern security standards. Since these apps and devices are easier to break into, blocking them helps keep your account safe.

Some examples of apps that do not support the latest security standards include:

  • The Mail app on your iPhone or iPad with iOS 6 or below
  • The Mail app on your Windows phone preceding the 8.1 release
  • Some Desktop mail clients like Microsoft Outlook and Mozilla Thunderbird

That is from Google’s support page themselves. That is why if you will not allow it 90% of the time adding your G Suite Email to Outlook 2016 will fail. For instructions on how to allow it click the link below.

2nd. Allow user per Outbound Gateway for G Suite

A per-user¬†outbound gateway is a mail server other than the G¬†Suite mail servers that delivers outgoing mail for a user in your domain. This is commonly enabled to fix POP connection errors. Enabling it is easy, just go to the Admin Console and search the “allow per user outbound gateways” and click the result to go to that settings. Check the box to enable and “Save”.
