    I have an HP notebook & Dell Desktop .
    I set up one Gmail Account that I wanted to have transfered to my Outlook Express (account) on both my computers.
    I created an account in Gmail and set it up ok, everything transfered over alright to both computers Outlook Express accounts.
    But I can only open & read the mail in the HP's Outlook Express.
    When I try to read it on the Dell I cannot open the mail at all and Loading is at the top of the page & never goes away.
    Can I only have the Gmail sent to one computer for me to be able to open it ?
    Do I need to make the Dell's Outlook Express a different Gmail account in order for it to work so I can read the mail ?
    Hope this is making sense.:rolleyes:

    I have Gmail set as Enable Imap
    On the pop3 I do not have anything checked.
    How do I adapt my input to Outlook ?

    I tried to follow the above links directions. I had to change my outgoing tab which was set as 465 to 587 as these directions said. Then I followed their set up and changed it to just download headers.
    I am getting this message now.

    Header download for the '[Gmail]' folder did not complete. Could not select '[Gmail]' on the IMAP server. You might try refreshing your folder list to synchronize with the IMAP server. Account: 'imap.gmail.com', Server: 'imap.gmail.com', Protocol: IMAP, Server Response: 'Unknown Mailbox: [Gmail] (Failure)', Port: 993, Secure(SSL): Yes, Error Number: 0x800CCCD2
    Refreshing did not help.

    Double-click on the Gmail folder on the left of the page. All of the sub folders should show on the right-hand side. Uncheck the box for [Gmail]. You shouldn't get error messages after that.

    The opening page on Outlook after you sign in.
