Google Imap in Outlook 2010?

    Hi guys, has anyone here ever used Gmail as a server and set it up to receive emails via Imap in Outlook?

    My current web host is in the USA and when I tried the imap service it was very slow. I was wondering if anyone had experience of Google's imap and whether you had any speed issues.

    Thanks in advance,
    Jo

    Thanks for replying. My other mail account is a hosted exchange and
    it's pretty fast. Mind you, it's in Melbourne.
    Maybe I should just bite the bullet and use a NZ mail server for imap.
