Zahid,

As per my knowledge you cant configure outlook in liferay but yes you can configure mail server i.e :Gmail,Yahoo or any other mail server.
mail portal is available for the same. Only one goal you have to customize mail server in your portal.
In case, you will face any difficulty in configuration then let me know.

I already tried its work perfectly.

Cheers,
Chirag

hi chirag and thanks for reply.

i have seen that mail portlet. but it says to contact admin for valid mail server configuration when i am loggin in as admin.
And when i login as a user it says to create a email id and register and then the when i log in again()after log out ) with the same user log in it again says " contact admin for valid mail server configuration ".i have configured my gmail account as the mail server in ROOT.xml.

Can u tell me whats wrong in this and what i have to do get it right.

Or else the steps that u have done to use that mail portlet, which u have mentioned thats working fine.

Yes to an extent. i am able to get the mail portlet configuration and make gmail account set up and a new account as well.

But its not showing me the different folders(inbox.outbox etc). It says that it will take few minutes for loading all the folders, but even after a long time nothing happens and it remains in the loading state itself.

Is some thing wrong in the configuration or that its just taking time and will work some time.
