You can always sync your Mac calendar to Gmail using the iCal format. I'm Gmail there is link you can use from the settings that you can put in your calendar to sync to it.

In outlook, you can make the Gmail calendar your default calendar. This would make. It your main calendar there, and then by using the iCal link, it would sync to your Mac devices.

The best way to set up the email is using IMAP. Note that email and calendar are not really related, since the email protocol doesn't handle the calendar.
