    Ability for Outlook to send email from Gmail?


    Today Outlook was updated so that you can now send email from Outlook but also send it from a non-Outlook account from the same inbox. Unless I misunderstood the story. Does anyone know how to set this up?

    Login to your Outlook>>settings (the "gear" icon on top right)>>Your email accounts>> then choose either "add send-only account" or "add send-and-receive account" and add your gmail address.
