Import your Outlook data later

G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook

You can import your old Outlook data to your Google Account with G Suite Sync for Microsoft Outlook (GSSMO) at any time. GSSMO supports the following source environments:

  • an existing Outlook profile
  • a Microsoft Exchange profile (if you're using Exchange)
  • a PST file containing data exported from Outlook

Import your data

  1. In the Start menu, click G Suite Sync and then Import data to G Suite Sync.

    If you receive an error message, you need to install a separate tool to import data. For details, see Enable import options.

  2. If prompted, sign in to your Google Account. For details, see Sign in to your Google Account.
  3. Switch to GSSMO by clicking the GSSMO icon "" in your Windows taskbar.
  4. In the Choose profile to import to G Suite Sync box, select an option:
    • An existing Outlook profile (default).
    • If your Exchange profile is listed, select the profile name to import directly from Exchange.
    • If you exported your data from Outlook to a PST file, select From a PST file. Browse to the file on your computer.
  5. Check the boxes to specify what type of data to import. For details, see What's synchronized between Outlook and G Suite.
  6. Choose the type of sync to perform:
    • Import all data (may cause duplicates)—Select this option for your first import. Or, if you've deleted all previously imported data from this account and want to import all your data again.

      If you already have data in your Google Account, this option might duplicate contacts, tasks, and notes. It will also overwrite your existing calendar data. Emails are duplicated if you select Import all data and you migrate the same emails from different profiles and/or PSTs.

    • Import only data that has not been imported previously—Select this option to resume a migration that didn't fully complete (for example, if you had to turn your computer off), or to import data that arrived after your first import.
  7. Click Next.
  8. In the Choose destination G Suite Sync Profile box, select a G Suite profile.
  9. Click OK to begin your import.
