Office 365 (Outlook on the Web) - How to add a UWM account as an alias in gmail

It is possible to add an Office 365 UWM email account as an "alias" in Gmail. Once this is configured, all sent messages using the UWM "alias" in Gmail will appear as if they originated from the individual's UWM Office 365 account and recipient replies will also be sent to the UWM account.

You will need to have an existing Gmail account to continue. Go to http://www.gmail.com to sign in or set up an account.


  • Enter the following information:

    • SMTP Server: smtp.office365.com
    • Username: Your UWM email address, e.g. ePantherID@uwm.edu
    • Password: Your password for the above account
    • Port: 587
    • Make sure Secured connection using TLS is selected


  • Once the settings are entered, click Add Account.
  • Google will send an email to your Office 365 UWM account to verify that you are the owner of your Office 365 UWM address. You must verify before you can send emails from your Office 365 UWM address through Gmail. Copy/Paste the confirmation code into the text box and click Verify.
