I am running Mac OS X and I have setup Windows XP in my virtualbox. I want to configure a Gmail account in outlook 2003. (don't ask me why)

The connection of Windows XPp in virtualbox is set to "nas".

In Outlook, the incoming email server (pop3) is set to: But the program can't make a connection to this server. In the program mail in Mac OS X, this works. So I assume I have to set something up in virtualbox.

Any ideas?

Your problem is that is stands for IMAP, but from your comment it appears that you trying to configure POP mail. I think this tutorial should help you.
