The settings for using a secure POP mail account in Outlook with Gmail can be found here in Microsoft's documentation. If you're unable to get it to work, then you will need to contact either Microsoft or Google to trouble the issue. If you have a direct error message please provide it as it can help us research the problem.

Hello Aureeva,

There should be no issues for you to connect to your email account as long as you can access the server from those locations. I would suggest getting in live contact with our support technicians via either a call or chat while being at those locations. This will help us determine what might be causing the issue with you connecting to your email.

Kindest Regards,
TJ Edens
