I've been trying to add my Gmail account to Microsoft Outlook 2016 but I keep getting this error message: We couldn't create the Outlook data file. Make sure the disk you're saving to isn't full or write-protected and that the file isn't being used. What can I do?

    How did you setup your account through pop3 or imap? It is better to go for imap. It is needed to enable the IMAP protocol in Gmail account. After opening Outlook, click File > Add new Account. In the next screen, choose IMAP over POP. The mail server settings may be look like this,

    Incoming Mail(IMAP) Server: imap.gmail.com

    Outgoing Mail(SMPTP) Server: smtp.gmail.com

    Now follow the on-screen instructions to complete the settings.
