  • Microsoft Outlook allows you to add other email accounts, such as Gmail, to your account so that you can use Outlook as your primary email client.
  • You can add your Gmail account to Outlook using both a PC and a Mac, but the process is slightly different between the two.

I’ve been a Microsoft Office for Mac user for a long time but I keep reading about the terrific things that Apple Mail can do, and I’d therefore really like to export my Outlook data. I’ve seen a lot of cluttered and disorganized Downloads folders on Mac. A lot.For me, at least, it’s much easier to keep my downloaded files cleaned up and organized if I download to my Desktop which I’m constantly looking at then to download to the downloads folder which I don’t pay attention to until it gets too cluttered to find anything.

If you have a Gmail account, but prefer to use the Microsoft Outlook interface for your email communications, you're in luck.

Outlook allows you to add your Gmail account to your Outlook account so that you can access both simultaneously within Outlook.
