The solution is in two steps:

Two things to verify before step 1:

  • IMAP and POP should be enabled in Gmail settings of the account
  • First enable IMAP
  • then enable POP for all mail
  • and 'Save Changes'

1. Set up your Outlook for Gmail account:

  • Now open your 'Outlook 2007' to add new e-mail account
  • click 'next' to start setting outlook
  • Choose 'Yes' and click 'Next'
  • Click 'Next'
  • Click 'Next'
  •  
  • Add your account info for user info and logon info for your account and for server in to fill as in the image. Click on 'More settings'
  • Click on 'Advanced' tab  
  • Fill in the info as shown in the image, for server port number
  • Click in ok and now you are ready to sync you Gmail with the outlook.

Second part is to back up the emails form Outlook of your account:

  • First download this tool 'Personal folder backup' and install it on your pc
  • Now go to the 'File' menu and click on 'Backup', and you will be able to back up

That's it you have successfully set up Outlook and took a back up for Gmail.
