Outlook 365 Not Syncing With Gmail - [SOLVED]

The Problematic Scenario:

Your Gmail and Outlook 365 are not syncing, and the business you are doing requires both of them to sync. You are encountering the “error in syncing” message with your Gmail account, but you find that all your other mail accounts are functioning properly. You also notice that, sometimes, the Outlook 365 not syncing with Gmail problem does not occur when your Windows computer is in Safe Mode. And some other times, the error pops up in Safe Mode too.

You have a doubt that this might be a Google server problem. You have tried many workarounds, but they have all failed to resolve the issue.

Simple Solutions To Problematic Scenario:

1. One way to solve the syncing issue is to delete your Gmail account from Outlook and then add it once again. Since all your emails are stored on Google’s servers and not on your local computer, you will not be losing any of your emails or data during this process. To do this task, follow these simple steps:

  • Step 1:On your Windows computer, launch Outlook.
  • Step 2:Now, go to the File menu and then select the Account and Social Settings option.
  • Step 3:Next, choose Account Settings and continue with the instructions to delete your Gmail account and then add it once again.

2. Yet another way to resolve the syncing problem is by following the steps given below. This was suggested by a user who was able to fix the issue. However, you have to remember that you might have to share some of your private data if you use this method. Now, carry out the following instructions:

  • Step 1:First, go to your Office account.
  • Step 2:Next, choose the Account Privacy option.
  • Step 3:Navigate to Manage Settings, scroll down the window, and select the checkbox next to the Enable Connected Experiences option.

The user who recommended the above procedure found that once he/she deselects the checkbox next to the Enable Connected Experiences option, the syncing problem resurfaced!

The above methods should help you solve the Outlook 365 not syncing with Gmail with your Outlook 365 and Gmail account.
