Gmail with Outlook Express

I was wondering if there is anyway you can use your gmail account with it. So, Outlook Express downloads your emails and everything, just like you can with hotmail, or rogers accounts???

That last thing seemed to work, except it seems to be having some trouble downloading all the emails. I have like 200 and something.. It has got like 100, and has doubles of them....

I just downloaded Firefox 1.0, been using 0.9.3 for awhile, didnt feel like changing untill now, and I got my extensions and everything working. The only thing is, at the top in Tools, it says "Read Mail (7 New), so I click on that and it opens up Outlook express, but there are no new emails showing in it...? I don't get it....Do you need to setup Firefox with your email or something.

That menu option has always seemed flaky to me.
According to this page, it's supposed to indicate the number of unread messages based on your default mail client. The fact that it opens up OE means that OE is correctly set as your default mail client. I use Outlook 2003, and it always shows up as "(0 new)"
Makes me wonder if it only works correctly with Thunderbird, but I'll let you know if I find out anything. :)
