Default Gmail as HTTP in OE

Does anyone know if there's a way to configure Gmail as an HTTP account in Outlook Express? I've already configured it as POP, but that's not quite what I'm looking for.

If anyone knows how/if this is possible, tell me, por favor.

Oulook is insecure so just stick to the Gmail homepage.

<form action=\"\" method=\"get\">
<input type=\"text\" name=\"search\"> <input type=\"submit\" name=\"submit\" value=\"Search TF before you post!\"></form>

Well, security isn't really an issue for me... What I actually wanted to accomplish with this is the option to simply click and drag emails from account to account without ever affecting the original sender data.

For example, if I want an email from my Hotmail account in my Gmail, right now I have to forward it and it appears that it's from me. Right now if I have an email in any POP account and I want it in my Hotmail, I simply click and drag it and it'll appear in whichever folder I so choose without affecting the sender data.

You know of any way I can do this?

(Even though you don't have to organize as much in Gmail, if I forward all the messages the search function won't work properly, anyway---follow)
