    Hello, I am quite new to these stuffs. I check mails directly through their portals I donít want to visit them again and again because itís quite annoying if you are working on something and then in between you have to open browser and have visit that site. So guys can you help me out what I need is an incoming mail server i.e POP3 or IMAP and an outgoing e-mail server i.e STMP for my Gmail account, Because I donít know where to find the solution for this so I have posted it here, Thanks in advance.

    The given steps for to setup Gmail account with MS outlook are perfect but I would to tell recommend IMAP client settings by which you will be safe or your privacy will be maintained on server. For Outlook express On the send tab in tools> Options, no need to not check Save copy of sent messages in the "Sent Items" folder. And check ísend messages immediatelyí. For Outlook 2003, In Email options settings reached by selecting tools and then click on Options and then on Preferences. And do not check ĎSave copies of messages in Sent Items folderí.
