You can use Outlook to receive, read, and send new messages from your Gmail account. You can also continue to use your Gmail account as before through the Gmail web site.
Open the Outlook app (such as Outlook 2013 or 2016). The top ribbon looks like this, with File in the left corner:
You can only use a version of Outlook that has File in the left corner - it means your version has an Import/Export wizard.
If your Outlook ribbon looks something like the one below, then you're not using an Outlook app that's installed on your computer. Please contact Smart Sourced IT for assistance.
In the Outlook app, choose File > Add Account.
On the Auto Account Setup page, enter your name, your Gmail address and your Gmail password (or the app password), and then choose Next. When entering the app password, check the show password box and make sure the any spaces are included in the password.
If the configuration process doesn't finish and you instead get prompts to enter your user name and password for the imap.gmail.com server, choose Cancel and re-enter your app password in case the first one had a typo. If you continue having problems, please contact Smart Sourced IT for assistance.
Click Finish. Outlook syncs with your Gmail account. The email in your Gmail account will appear in Outlook, right below your Office 365 mailbox.
