Outlook 2007, Gmail and Outlook - mail remains in Draft-folder


My customer wants to use his Gmail-account in Outlook 2007, so I've configured an IMAP-account for him.

It works well to receive mail and while configuring the account, a test mail was sent out correctly.

BUT - when writing a new mail and selecting Gmail as the account (my customer has an Exchange-account as well for another account) and click on the Send-button, the mail always are going to the Draft-folder and stays there. I've tried with different addresses but the mails are never sent.

Any ideas what to do?

I don't think gmail allows imap. I know it uses POP.
