As you all know that I had just switched to Outlook after using Mozilla Thunderbird over 5 years.

The main problem I faced in Outlook is that it cant detect my Google Apps accounts server which Thunderbird did, So in that case I had to manually configure the servers.

If you also facing such problems then here is the solution :-

  • Launch Outlook and the click on File –> Info and then click on Add Account,


  • Now a new dialog box comes which ask some of your information, just click on Manually Configure Server Settings,


  • Now click on Internet Email,
  • Now your setting will go like this :-

Name :- Your Name

Email Address :- Google Apps Email Address which you wanna add,

Account Type :- IMAP,

Incoming Mail Server :-

Outgoing Mail Server :-

Username :- Your Full Email Address which you wanna add,

Password :- Your Password


  • Once you done click on the More Setting button on the right side on the same window, in Outgoing Server Tab check option saying My Outgoing Server (SMTP) Requires Authentication,


  • Now Click on Advance Tab and

Incoming Server Port :- 993,

Encrypted Option :- SSL

Outgoing Server Port :- 465,

Encrypted Option :- SSL



  • That’s it now click OK and then on Next, Outlook will test setting and if you had followed above steps correctly then Outlook will add your Google Apps Account.
