When I use windows xp I use Gmail in my outlook express. Some of friend tells that Microsoft out look is better for mail. So when I installed Windows Server 2003 I installed Microsoft office 2003, now I need to configure my Gmail in ms outlook, I want to collect my mail from when I use windows xp and use outlook express.

Go to MORE SETTINGS –> OUTGOING SERVER and check the box: "MY outgoing server ……………."
Next go to Advanced and set IMAP (port) to 993 and SMTP to 25. Also check the 2 boxes given there. it will look like this:
Now you can check mail by clicking send/receive.
And that's it.
