not too many folk about?, I'm using my first mac (ibook 12") and the setup was incredibly easy, i seem to remember it imported all my email on outlook without a hitch.
tried system prefs then accounts?

apologies in advance as required!

Dobbo, conrats on your purchase. Setting up a Gmail account in Mail is quite easy. If you go to the Gmail website it has a walkthrough with screenshots of how to setup with Apple Mail. I'vr attached a screenshot of my setup jst replace "Atorie" with your Gmail username and add your password.

go to this google gmail help site and that will explain how to set up the Apple Mail program.

If you are using entourage 2004 go to this site:
