Here you have it folks! Your MS Outlook inbox is now configured with your Gmail account and you can directly check your mail by firing up Outlook on your computer. This not only eliminates the need for a browser to open your email inbox but is far more secure than any browser due to SSL encryption. While a lot of professionals prefer Outlook for their day to day email needs, setting up your Gmail account will add some major enhancements to it. Similarly, you can also add your other email addresses to work with MS Outlook for a convenient and secure email solution.
