You can open your messages from Gmail in other mail clients that support POP, like Microsoft Outlook.
Step 1: Make sure POP is the best way to read your emails
IMAP and POP are both ways to read your Gmail messages in other email clients.
IMAP can be used across multiple devices. Emails are synced in real time.
POP can only be used for a single computer. Emails aren't synced in real time. Instead, they're downloaded and you decide how often you want to download new emails.
Step 2: Set up POP
First, set up POP in Gmail
1. On your computer, open Gmail.
2. Sign in with your “firstname.lastname@example.org” and password.
3. In the top right, click Settings .
4. Click Settings.
5. Click the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab.
6. In the "POP Download" section, select Enable POP for all mail or Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on.
7. At the bottom of the page, click Save Changes.
Next, Allow less secure apps to access your gmail
