Next question, did you search or read the FAQ?

And this is a BB forum, not one for Outlook.

If you want to use email on your BlackBerry, which I'm sure you do, as it's really what makes a BlackBerry a BlackBerry, ensure that you have a data plan. A data plan will give you BIS access, which gives you (among other things) push email. You configure your BIS so that it monitors your email account and "pushes" new email to your handheld. You only need the software that comes on your phone, less you want to use some of the advanced Gmail features. In that case, install Gmail for BlackBerry, and login. Most people, however, stick to the BIS option, as it better integrates and preserves battery life. With push email, the BIS server does most of the work. With the Gmail app, the app on your BlackBerry queries Gmail once every few minutes, depleting the battery every time. Yes, you will get to use labels and all that, but you won't be able to click web links and open Gmail and your battery life will suffer substantially.

If you want to get your gmail in Outlook, that is an Outlook issue, not a BB issue. Now if you want to get your gmail on the BB that is a BB issue and that is covered in the FAQ and also available via the search function. Those are two very different issues and I do not see it as an inappropriate response.

You can set up gmail in BIS using POP3: How to add / delete email addresses - BlackBerryFAQ

I think there is also a gmail app you can download. Don't use gmail on the BB, so I cannot comment on if it works or how well it works.
