MS outlook

How do you set-up MS Outlook so I coul have it mirror or sync with by gmail account.  I would like to be able to send and receive emails on my work desktop computer via outlook and still be able to view my gmail account via the web from home.  Is it possible to have my inbox and sent box mirror gmail on the web and outlook on my work desktop?

yes http://lynspirations.blogspot.com/2010/04/how-to-setup-gmail-in-microsoft-office.html just remmeber to tick "Leave a copy on the server" so outlook does not download all your gmail mail and remove the copy on the gmail server
Pete LongTechnical ConsultantCommented:
in fact Ive just tested it you dont need to select leave a copy on the server it will do that by default - just enable imap in your gmail account (under settings top right)
then point your outlook client at gmail

Hi Reyesrj
You could also use Windows Live Mail which lets you connect to, and synchronise with, your gmail account.
With WLM you can have one mail client which collects mail from many mail servers.
