Question:

>> Our company uses GMail for corporate mail. How can we configure the SharePoint to work with @gmail mailbox?

Answer:

I got several questions how to configure the SharePoint on Windows Server 2008 to alternative email addresses when you don't have Exchange (for those who don't know Microsoft removed internal Mailbox support from Windows Server 2008).

There are several solution for this situation - using 3rd party mail servers, like Visendo and others. But in some cases you company can use GMail or Live mail for the corporate correspondence, and you need to configure your SharePoint to work with external mail servers.

Such configuration a bit tricky but possible. I recommend to read that post http://www.oceanapproach.com.au/blog/Lists/Posts/Post.aspx?ID=44 where described how to configure SharePoint to work with GMail accounts
