Is your iinet account linked to gmail account?

I am "technology challenged" my grandson says. How do I check if the iinet is linked to gmail
Expert:  John replied 3 months ago.

In that case may I send you the offer to remote access to your PC and check the issue you are facing directly. It’s secure and also you can see what all I am doing in the PC.

Let me know.

Expert:  John replied 3 months ago.

Here is another tool to do remote support it’s called Team Viewer, to download it click on this link http://www.teamviewer.com download, install and then open it. Let me know the id and password it shows. Do not close the Team-Viewer window or this chat page. Closing the Team-viewer window will terminate the remote session too so please do not close Team-Viewer window after you give me the id and password. When you send me the id please insert space in-between the digits like 1 2 3 4 5 6

Expert:  John replied 3 months ago.

Did you manage to install team viewer using the free personal options?

Expert:  John replied 3 months ago.

If you have any problem using that remote support tool please let me know.

> I can get into my gmail account but not my iinet email account.

I am still a bit confused about what's wrong with your iinet account. I list a few situations below and let you choose:

1. You can't send any message from your iinet email account to your Gmail mailbox.

2. You can't send any message from your Gmail box to your iinet email account.

3. You set up Google to automatically retreive emails from your iinet email account, but it does not work.

4. Something else, please clarify.

> I get a message from Google saying someone is trying to get in.

What's the exact error message you got from Google? Better please post a screenshot?
