  • Using Outlook to send email in software

    Posted by Jerry Ranch on 06/12/2022 at 10:34 AM

    Since we can’t use GMAIL now to send emails, I thought I’d get Outlook working for that task. So I setup a free email account @outlook.com. When sending email from the software(s) do I need to be logged into the web client or the actual MS Outlook app. I tried setting up MS Office with the email and password I used in the web based client, and my computer just spun and spun until I finally terminated it.

    Can you provide a short tutorial on how to get Outlook working with the software.


    Thanks

    Hi Jerry,

    I solved the GMAIL issue in the latest release by using a webmail service that I purchased instead of GMAIL or Yahoo. I did this for people that do not have Outlook. If you choose webmail in the application you just enter a reply-to address. This can be your GMAIL address. Emails will be sent from notifications @myK9T.com through my webmail service. When an exhibitor replies the email will go to what you entered in the reply-to address. You can also BCC yourself since there is no sent folder to look in.

    The Outlook application which is part of office is the best method because it will handle all the buffering and re-sending and you have a sent folder. You can also preview an email before you send it. Outlook can have multiple email addresses. The emails from my application will be transferred to Outlook and Outlook will send them from the email address that is the default. Here is a video I found for setting up Outlook. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfSCfBntqPU
