want to configure Outlook (the email client from Microsoft) to receive and send emails using a GMAIL account then follow these steps:

1. Log in to your GMAIL account

2. In the upper right corner of the web page click on the little settings icon (looks like a gear)

3. Select Mail Settings

4. In the resulting page you will see a horizontal colored bar labeled Settings with several tabs

5. Click on the tab labeled FORWARDING AND POP\IMAP

6. Enable POP as desired

7. Click the link that reads Configuration instructions

8. Select your version of Outlook (if prior to Outlook 2003 select Outlook Express) and follow the instructions

If you have already set the POP\IMAP page and just need the Outlook config instructions here is a direct link:
