  1. I've just started using Outlook 2007 with my Gmail account.
    I set everything up with the POP protocol and deactivated IMAP in Gmail.

    My question however is, what is more usefull to work with? POP or IMAP? If I understadn correctly POP only downloads messages while IMAP synchronizes both Inboxes.

    If I want to change my settings in outlook for my Gmail account from POP to IMAP, how can I do that?

    many thanks
