The following guide will take your through the needed steps of configuring both your Gmail and Outlook client to view Gmail emails in Outlook.

Now, of course the first thing that is needed is to actually have a Gmail account, if you do not have an account please proceed to the Google web page and then click on the Gmail link at the top of the page. If you have never signed up for any Google services there is an option to create a new account. Once you have either logged in or have created a new account and have your Gmail page in front of you perform the following steps.
