I am trying to use GMAIL Contacts folder in Outlook 2007 but Contacts folder for Gmail account does not exist in Outlook 2007.  I tried to create new Contacts folder under Gmail account in OL 2007 and it came back with an error "IMAP protocl cannot support special folders"  

Anyone has a workaround to this problem.  Thanks in advance.

IMAP cannot handle but e-mail. You can buy a third-party product that elegantly solves this for both contacts and calendars:

did not really solve the problem just approved my doubts that GMAIL IMAP was not supporting Contacts folder.
