    Hello,

    Do you want to check your Gmail and/or Yahoo accounts from Outlook.com?

    To read your Gmail you can either configure POP3 access, or to protect access to your acocunt, you can set Gmail to forward email to Outlook.com:
    1. Sign in to both your Outlook.com and Gmail accounts
    2. Go to the Settings in your Gmail account
    3. Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP
    4. Click Add a forwarding address
    5. Type in your Outlook.com email address
    6. Click Next, then click Proceed, and then click OK.
    7. In Outlook.com, open the confirmation email from Gmail, then click the verification link
    8. Go back to your Gmail settings for "Forwarding and POP/IMAP"
    9. Select "Forward a copy of incoming mail to" and then click Save

    Outlook.com supports adding access to a Yahoo Mail account:

    1. In your Outlook.com, click the Options Gear, then click More mail Settings.
    2. In Managing your account click "Your email accounts"
    3. In Add an email account click "Add a send-and-receive account"
    4. Enter your Yahoo email address and password, then click Next
    5. Select the location where you want the email from this account to be delivered
    6. Select the option that you want for your unread messages
    7. Click Save.
    The steps for adding a Yahoo Mail account to your Outlook.com can also be used for other adding access to your other email accounts.
