Gmail account into Outlook 2007

My company has a Gmail account that we paid $50 a year for and I wanted to know how to map it or configure it to work on Outlook 2007?  I can obviously get to it by login to: gmail.com, but I wanted to use Outlook 2007 to send/receive emails from there.

you can set it up as imap so you can use either the outlook client or the webmail -

ee4itpro: the complete instructions for this are located here.
There are a couple of noteworthy prerequisites in doing this however.  

1.) You will want to verify that the latest service packs for Office 2007 have been applied, especially those related to Outlook.

2.) You will also want to make sure IMAP is enabled within gmail.  If not, step 1.) in the instructions illustrates that for you.

Additionally sir, do take a moment to familiarize yourself with some of the differences between gmail and typical imap servers which affect the proper settings of your email client.  Those may be found here.

Finally, though you did not ask, I feel it prudent to ask if you have made the decision to do all of this for reasons that are of a final (or settled) purpose.  Gmail affords many benefits when used via the users web browser that may not be apparent at first glance.  That said, there are indeed a few issues which arise affecting ones choice to use a client as opposed to the browser.  Please feel free to post any questions you may have in making this choice and I will do my best to answer them in a manner that addresses the benefits vs. consequences of the two choices.  I add this simply to illustrate my own reasons for choosing NOT to use a client for my organization.  I remain at your service if you need it.
