Cannot sync Gmail with Windows 8 charm RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have tried repeatedly to link my gmail account with the mail charm in Windows 8. It keeps telling me that the information is not valid. Yes, I have entered my email address and password correctly. I use a yahoo account as my Microsoft account and have added my gmail account as an alias AND made it the primary. Any suggestions? Thank you!

  • Hi,

    After calling Charm bar -> Settings -> Account. Just add your Gmail as an "Other Account" instead of as a "Google Account".
