I use Outlook 2003 and set up Gmail account using IMAP, but not getting any
updates until I click on inbox folder, also I not getting any email alerts.


Can I make Outlook auto update IMAP account and ring alerts on new e-mails?


If not should I use STMP/POP3 instead and won't it cause any problems if I
use both at same time?

With a rule you can produce an alert using a sound file of your choice.
Outlook's built-in New Mail alert doesn't work on IMAP accounts.
If not should I use STMP/POP3 instead and won't it cause any problems if I
use both at same time?

This is one way to deal with it, yes. Just make sure you configure your POP
account to leave messages on the server.
