HOW DO I convert Outlook 2007 over to Google?

Step 1: Enable POP settings in webmail
Note: If you have already enabled POP settings in the webmail, head down to step 2 here.
  1. Go to www.dishmail.net and login.
  2. If taken to the Start Page, click the Mail link in the banner. If taken to webmail directly, proceed.
  3. Select Settings at the top left of the screen.

  4. On the Settings page, select “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” at the top.

  5. In the “POP Download” section, select the radio button for “Enable POP for all mail”

  6. Click the dropdown box next to “When messages are accessed with POP” and pick either Keep, Archive, or Delete. These mean that when the email client downloads email:
    1. Keep keeps the downloaded email in the webmail inbox for later access.
    2. Archive keeps the downloaded email in webmail, but removes them from the webmail inbox. You can access archived email in webmail by selecting “All Mail” from the left selections.
    3. Delete removes the downloaded email from webmail. Those emails will not be available in webmail or for downloading from another client.
  7. Select “Save Changes”


Step 2: Converting Outlook 2007 to Google
  1. Go to the Tools menu and select Account Settings.

  2. Select the DISHMail.net account and select Change.



  3. On this page:
    1. Change the "Incoming mail server" to pop.gmail.com.
    2. Change the "Outgoing mail server (SMTP)" to smtp.gmail.com.
    3. Make sure the "User Name" is in username@dishmail.net format (add the @dishmail.net if you need to).
    4. Make sure that the Password is correct if you have changed it.
    5. Select "More Settings".



  4. Select the Advanced tab. On this page:
    1. Check the checkbox "This server requires an encypted connection (SSL)" and change the "Incoming Server (POP3)" port number to 995 if needed.
    2. Select TLS from the dropdown "Use the following type of encrypted connection".
    3. Next to "Outgoing server (SMTP)", enter 587 or 465 (choose one) as the port number.
    4. Select OK.



  5. This returns you to the Internet E-mail Settings page. Click Test Account Settings. You should receive a Congratulations! message.
  6. Click Next then click Finish.
