Consolidating to gmail
Over the years I've accumulated a collection of addresses on a variety of free email services: Hotmail and its successors; Yahoo (barely used); and, of course, Gmail.With this consolidation, all of those widely scattered addresses are now going to a single inbox, with an address hosted on a domain I own.
Remember – make sure you keep private emails out of the thread history within a conversation. Share them with the Active Inbox community in the comments section below!My i Phone address book holds nearly 800 contacts including defunct numbers, contacts containing no information, and of course the requisite dozens of duplicate contacts.This is the result of years of syncing various email accounts and social media profiles.Outlook will automatically detect your Gmail account and set up the proper account settings. (If you have Gmail’s two-step verification security enabled, Google will send a six-digit code to your Gmail account and display an Enter code text box.You will need to sign in to your Gmail account to retrieve the code and enter it correctly to verify your identity.) If you prefer to set up your Gmail account manually, the Incoming mail server is imap.gmail.com, and the Outgoing mail server (SMTP) is smtp.
