Can I read gmail in outlook, along with my regular 'work' email account?

I was wondering if it is possible to read my gmail account inside my outlook account where I work? As a separate folder or similar... We use Outlook 2007 and we do use Exchange, but I am not sure which version of exchange.

It would be a matter of convenience only, so if not possible, no big deal.  I just know you can read multiple email accounts in Outlook- but don't know how it works or how to set it up.  Thanks!

it can if you setup to deliver gmail to a new folder instead of merged. you can do this through filters or in the account settings of outlook.
Good day...

You will ned to setup a separate account and then filter or divide the accounts into their own personal folder.
It will be a few steps. I'm going to have you set it up as an IMAP account so messages will still stay in google account when you check them on outlook at work.
Outlook 2007
Open outlook, at the top click on tools, go to account settings, click new, select microsoft exchange, pop3, imap, or http option. Click Next, select manually configure server settings at the bottom of the screen ( click next ) , select internet e-mail, (click next), Fill in your name and email address
Account Type - IMAP
Incoming Mail Server -
Outgoing Mail Server -
type your username  jdoe ( ex.
type your password
Click on require logon using sercure password authentication at the bottom

Click on more settings to the right hand side, select the advanced tab at the top, For Incoming server change use the following type of encrypted connection ( SSL )  for the Outgoing Server change use the follow type.... to TLS then change the number in the box to 587 instead of 25.  Select the Outgoing Server tab at the top, check the box ( My outgoing server SMTP requires Authenication )  Click Ok, Then click Next, Then Click Finish, then click close.  You messages should be in a folder to the left hand side of the screen labeled ( )

That should be it,
