Whether you should use POP or IMAP is very much a matter of personal preference. 

POP is a one way download - it accesses Gmail's All Mail and downloads everything (except Spam and Trash) into the client's Inbox.  Once that has happened then no actions you perform on your mail will show up in Gmail, and vice versa. So it's good for backups or if you are concerned about keeping permanent records.

IMAP is a full two-way sync, where the client will always mirror what's in your Gmail account. So if you delete mail in the client, that will sync back to Gmail, and if you perform actions in Gmail, they will sync back to the client. 

The settings you need for Outlook are:

Incoming Mail (IMAP) Server - Requires SSLimap.gmail.com
Port: 993
Requires SSL:Yes

Incoming Mail (POP3) Server - requires SSL:pop.gmail.com
Use SSL: Yes
Port: 995

Outgoing Mail (SMTP) Server - Requires TLS or SSLsmtp.gmail.com
Port: 465 or 587
Requires SSL: Yes
Requires authentication: Yes
Use same settings as incoming mail server

Full Name or Display Name: [your name]
Account Name or User Name: your full Gmail address (user...@gmail.com). Google Apps users, please enter user...@your_domain.com
Email address: your full Gmail address (user...@gmail.com) Google Apps users, please enter user...@your_domain.com
Password: your Gmail password
You will also need to follow the instructions in the help page below, as Outlook cannot sign in to your account using Google's new higher-security sign-in:
