I just re-installed my Outlook but unfortunately I didn't save the data file with all my emails. Is there any way to sync the outlook with my gmail? To export the mails from my gmail and then import them into outlook?

  • You have to enable IMAP in Gmail's web-based settings before it will let you connect.
