Hi,

I'm playing around with Exchange 2010 a bit. I like the webaccess and wonder if it would be possible to let Exchange 2010 gather my gmail, calendar etc.

Would that be possible?

Nope, the database of user should be in the exchange db to access owa.
Offcourse you can do that with outlook, it was not possible with OWA.. AFAIK :)

You could run a POP Puller on Exchange to pull your inbox from gmail. There are a few listed here:-

better, as GMAIL supports IMAP it is possible to keep Exchange and GMAIL in sync.

I found this tool:-

but I havn't tried it. Other tools are here:-

try a google search on "IMAP sync tool exchange"

That leaves the calendar and contacts which are harder. There doesn't seem to be a server tool for that but google produce a tool for syncing calendars in Outlook:-

Again I havn't tried that.
