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