    Entire tutorial ... Manual as well as automatic

    You can download e-mails from Gmail account into Outlook Express by using POP. To do this, you need to follow two steps. The first is to login to your Gmail web account by using any Web browser such as Internet Explorer, and enable POP access. The next step is configuring Gmail account in Outlook Express.

    To enable POP access, please follow these steps. Login to your Gmail web account by using any Web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and click the settings link at the top right corner that will show the `Mail Settings' for your account. Click the fourth link "Forwarding and POP" and here you may select either "Enable POP for all mail" or "Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on".

    The next important setting is "When messages are accessed with POP" for the action you would like to do. Gmail offers three choices. They are "Keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox", "archive Gmail's copy" and "trash Gmail's copy". Please select any one of these choices depending on your requirement.

    After making the changes, click on the "Save changes" button. This will end your first step of enabling POP access.

    Just double click GmailConfig file and select the e-mail client that you wish to configure, either Outlook Express or Outlook. For your requirement, select Microsoft Outlook Express and type your Gmail ID in the e-mail address field. In the Display name text box, please type your full name or whatever you would like people to see in the `From' field. Click the configure button at the bottom and click Finish. Your Gmail account configuration is now complete.

    To configure Gmail account into Outlook Express manually, please follow the steps. Open Outlook Express. Click Tools - Accounts - Mail tab. Click the Add button select Mail from the popup. In the Display name text box, please type your full name or whatever you would like people to see in the `From' field and click Next. In the e-mail address field, please enter your Gmail e-mail address (eg username@gmail.com) and click Next. Select the `My incoming mail server' as a "POP3" server. Type "pop.gmail.com"(without quotes) as your Incoming mail (POP3, IMAP or HTTP) server and type "smtp.gmail.com" as the Outgoing mail (SMTP) server and click

    Next. In the Account name field, please type your Gmail address (eg username@gmail.com). In the Password field, enter your Gmail account password. If you do not wish to type in your password every time you check your mail, tick the Remember password box and click Next. Then click Finish. Select pop.gmail.com (newly configured) under the Internet Accounts window and click properties - Advanced tab. In the Outgoing mail (SMTP) box enter "465"(without quotes) and tick the option. This server requires a secure connection (SSL). In the Incoming mail (POP3) box, enter "995" (without quotes) and tick the option. This server requires a secure connection (SSL).Then increase the Server Timeout to `Long' (5 minutes). Select Servers tab and in the bottom, tick the

    checkbox of "My server requires authentication". Click ok and close. Now just click the Send/Recv button that will download Gmail messages into your Outlook Express inbox.
