    it sure is man. it's easy. first thing, you will want to go into your gmails settings, and there is an option to allow the mailbox to be downloaded.

    its the forward and pop/imap settings

    you will want to emable pop or imap..which ever one you want to use.

    What is POP?
    POP is short for Post Office Protocol. POP is one method used by e-mail programs to retrieve e-mail from the server. The important feature of POP is that when you retrieve your mail the messages are moved from the server to the computer you use to check mail.
    What is IMAP?
    IMAP is short for Internet Message Access Protocol. It is the other main method used by e-mail programs to retrieve mail. Unlike POP, IMAP keeps your messages on the server. When you click to read a message IMAP presents the message that is stored on the server.

    oh, there is actually a link for how to do it. Just select the version of outlook that you are using..

    here is a link.
