Sounds like you are using Google Apps for Business with a domain name you own.
There are special steps you need to follow to get Google Apps to work with Outlook. I believe there is a special Outlook connector, I believe it's called Google Apps Sync, that you'll need to download and install; there are also some configuration changes you'll need to be make in your Google Apps configuration as well.
You should check the support section of Google Apps for more information. You may also want to review this: http://www.westhillsweb.com/how-to-set-up-google-apps-email-in-outlook/

I have settled for a workaround. I set google mail to forward all incoming mail from me@mydomain to email@example.com. Then I set up the Outlook client to receive mail from firstname.lastname@example.org. It works for receiving and sending. I am worried now that maybe using Outlook client for sending and receiving any mail is somehow bypassing Google security features, making my email account vulnerable.

No, I forgot to try the Google Apps Sync solution. I'm trying that now. I downloaded it and installed, but the procedure to get it running is long and confusing. I saw something during the installation process that indicates that Google Apps Sync might not be free, but I haven't seen any clear statement about that. Anyway, I am plowing through it now. Thank you for the help.
