    Guys,

    At my office, I had Ms Office 2000 with Outlook 2000. Got my PDA and had to install Outlook 2002 to sync the PDA with the computer. Got it done and everything worked perfect till.............I decided to get my gmail account configured to Outlook. That wasnt possible with Outlook 2002 due to some problems , so I tried Outlook 2000, which created problems in the sync relation between the PDA and computer. So back I went to Outlook 2002 , same problem syncing with the PDA and to top it , gmail still not configured.

    So I upgraded to Outlook 2003, still gmail not working in Outlook 2003, but Outlook 2003 downloads my gmail on my laptop (on a MTNL dial up connection) like a dream . Whats happening here ? Can someone help ? On my office desktop , I surf through proxy server on LAN and a sify broadband
    connection.

    What could be the problem ?
    cheers

    Hi,
    I am not sure if this will help. After setting up Outlook, before clicking Send/Receive for the first time, login to your GMail account using your browser. Without logging out or closing the browser window, click Send/Receive in Outlook. If it works, stay logged in using the browser till the send/receive is over.

    After tinkering about a bit - I found out that it was the proxy server causing the problem. I use a analog proxy server. My machine is connected to the machine with the broadband connection via analog proxy. So I put in the proxy address in the incoming and outgoing servers - it works but does not send test message and fails to log on to incoming server. am using the default ports here.

    How do i get by this ?
