I have Microsoft Outlook setup on one computer with my Gmail account. If I set it up on my second will they both be identical? For example if I send a message from one computer can I see that I sent it from the other via Outlook? And will they have identical inbox's?

if it is setup to POP3, no.
if it is setup to IMAP, yes.

note that even with IMAP,... anything local to each computer/client will still be different.

nuke, you don't have a choice about whether your mail provider uses POP or IMAP; all you can do is look for one that offers IMAP, and (probably) pay them for an account.

almost everyone DOES give you a choice by either allowing you to connect as an IMAP or POP3

I have only ran into a couple that didn't allow for IMAP and only POP3... never ran into anyone who was IMAP only, unless it is a specific IMAP specialized service

Haha well I decided that I'm just going to use the web version of outlook when I'm on my Eee Pc and outlook when I'm on my Thinkpad which is going to stay put for the most part. Seems easiest that way.
