Log in to your Gmail account and go to the settings section (link found near the top right). Under the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab, move to the POP Download section and make sure the option is enabled by selecting one of the two options: Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded) OR Enable POP for mail that arrives from now on. Now choose what you would like to do with the copy of the email message - let it lie in your Gmail account, delete it or archive it. I recommend you pick the first option of keeping the copy in the online account (there is copious amount of space, so why bother?). Remember to click on "Save Changes" button at the bottom.Step 2 - Adding Gmail to Outlook ExpressNow comes the interesting part of adding Gmail to Outlook Express. Again, the process is fairly simple - simply follow the instructions and screenshots below.Start Outlook Express and go to Tools -> Accounts which displays the Internet Accounts window. Click on the Mail tab in the pop-up window and then Add -> Mail.The Internet Connection Wizard window now awaits your inputs. Start by entering a Display name which can be anything you want - your name, company name... whatever.Then enter your full Gmail address.For email server configuration, enter pop.gmail.com and smtp.gmail.com as incoming and outgoing email server, respectively.Finally, provide the program with your Gmail username and the account password and click on "Finish" button when done.You're back at the Internet Accounts window which now shows the newly created Gmail account as pop.gmail.com. Don't close this window yet because we still need to change some settings. Note: If you have closed this window, you can bring it up again - click on "Tools" (from the top menu), select "Accounts" and then move to the "Mail" tab.New Gmail account configurationAlmost there... we just need to configure the new Gmail account you've added on Outlook Express. Select the pop.gmail.com account from the Internet Accounts window and click on Properties which pops up the email account properties window.Under the General tab, enter a descriptive name for the account. This step is optional - you can retain pop.gmail.com or change it to something else - anything! Fill up the Organization and Reply address fields - this too is optional but recommended.Now move to the Advanced tab. Check the box in front of This server requires a secure connection (SSL) and ensure the Incoming mail (POP3) port number changes to 995.Click on the "Apply" button and then the "OK" button.
