    Copies of received G-Mail emails being sent to Outlook?


    Hi everyone,

    Using Windows Mail on Win 8.1, every time I receive or send an email from my GMail account I get a copy of it at my outlook.com address/inbox. I don't have forwarding on and don't understand why my Gmail send & receives would have to show up also in my outlook.com address inbox.

    I've been searching the web for hours now and decided to register here and see if anyone can help.

    Thanks!

    Go to Microsoft Accounts and sign in>Security & Privacy>Connected Accounts, and see if you have google listed there(happened to me when setting Windows 10 TP up).

    Thanks for the info Cliff. That doesn't seem to be my issue though as when I go into Microsoft Accounts I don't even see a "Connected Accounts" link. The only mention of my Gmail address is that it's my "alert" address to send things to to see if it's me or not.

    You're welcome. The same thing happened to me when I upgrade/installed Windows 10TP and was setting the mail app up, and didn't understand what connecting the Gmail account did, I thought it just put the Email account in the app and not sync Gmail with my Hotmail account. Sometimes Microsoft thinks we know everything and do not need explanations or better descriptions.
