Microsoft Outlook is the most powerful and intuitive e-mail client software. Microsoft’s Outlook 2010 provides a very rich set of e-mail management tools to help you better manage your emails with a cool user interface. If you have a GMail account, then configuring the account with Microsoft Outlook 2010 is a piece-of-cake.
Firstly we have to have an email account created on our web space and know the user-name and password to access the account. If you haven't yet created an email account then follow the tutorial here first.
First of all launch MS Outlook 2010 and click the office button which is located in the left most corner, now under the Info category you will be able to see the Account Settings option, click the drop down button and choose Add Account as shown in following screenshot.
In the next step, select Email Account, enter Your Name, Email Address, and Password and click Next.
Now sit back and relax, Outlook 2010 will do the rest for you, it will establish connection to the relevant network, search for GMail server settings and log you on to the server automatically.
It will take a couple of minutes to complete the required configuration.
Click Finish and thats all, it will take some time to download your emails.
Now use all the enhanced features of Outlook 2010 to manage your email inbox.
If for some reason Outlook 2010 cannot find your servers don't worry, see This Tutorial which is outlook 2007 but to configure your servers manually is the same.
