If your admin has enabled it, you can connect to Exchange as a POP3 server. Otherwise, you have to use Outlook to tell Exchange to forward your mail to a Gmail account. Gmail can't ask Exchange directly using Exchange’s own protocols.

Gmail doesn't support IMAP as a client as far as I know. –  Nifle Apr 14 '11 at 18:36
@Nifle - you are right, updated. –  Joel Coehoorn Apr 14 '11 at 19:31
If I use Outlook for forward the email, then what I did with the messages like labeling, read/unread/remove ect. won't be synced with exchange server and that results a mess for me I'm afraid. –  Nam G VU Apr 15 '11 at 18:15
@Nam - Them's your options. Take em or leave em. –  Joel Coehoorn Apr 15 '11 at 19:27
I know Joel. If you don't want to receive feedback, then you won't get no further from me except this last one - I always see the sender is myself in gmail :) –  Nam G VU Apr 17 '11 at 9:51

  • Create a new server-side rule.
  • Set the condition to "All Messages"
  • Set the action to "Redirect To" and add your gmail address.

Using Redirect-To, and not Forward-To, preserves the original sender's information.
