While it is recommended to use Gmail for accessing the OSU Gmail mailbox, some users with only ONID Gmail accounts prefer to use Outlook as their email client.



  1. In Outlook go to File>Add Account
  2. Put in your ONID email account, then click 'Advanced Options' and check 'Let me set up my account manually'
  3. Click 'Connect'
  4. Click 'Google' and put in your ONID password
  5. Click 'Cancel' on the little window that shows up. This will cause the account adding window to say 'Something went wrong'
  6. Click 'Change Account Settings'
  7. Set the 'Incoming mail' server address to '' and the 'Outgoing mail' server address to ''
  8. Click 'Next', then 'Connect'
