Lifehacker.com just published a trick to increase the frequency of the checks in Gmail. It's a bit of work to set it up, but essentially you need to ensure that your POP3 accounts frequently get new mail. Gmail bases its mail-fetching frequency on how often it finds messages in the account when it checks; if the account only gets email rarely, ...

If you look under Google Labs, there's a feature called: Refresh POP accounts "Fetch messages from your POP accounts on demand by using the refresh link on top of the inbox."

Yes. You need to add that email address as an account that you can send from (if you haven't aleady done that). Then you need to turn on the setting to reply as the account sent to. Both settings can be found under Settings | Accounts and Import. See also: Gmail support

As mentioned in the linked you'll have to generate a one-time application-specific password and provide that application-specific password as your password when you're adding the Gmail account. Note I haven't tried this for outlook.com but the practice is standard for across all clients which request for password & don't request for the token code using ...

Google's Program Policies page says "Google may terminate your account in accordance with the terms of service if you fail to login to your account for a period of nine months." That's "may," not "will," and it doesn't answer whether POP3 access counts as "active." But you can use Google's Inactive Account Manager to set up alerts for inactivity. You can ...

Am I missing something or the "labels" are only useful in gmail itself? If you're using POP3 - Yep. AFAIK, you can leverage labels through IMAP only.

Yes, you can use POP and IMAP simultaneously.

For gmail, the port should be 995 not 110. Also you have to make sure that pop is enabled on the account. However, as mjrider says, forwarding is much faster and it should cause any problems with conversation flow, providing you don't log into the secondary account directly and send emails from there (since these replies won't appear in your main account). ...

If you want to backup your Gmail, it's perfectly fine to do it using IMAP. In Windows, try with Gmail Backup. In Linux, offlineimap is excellent software for that. As of POP settings, in Gmail->Mail settings->Forwarding and POP/IMAP, you can choose That should enable access to earlier emails too.

Yes. See Google Apps With Google Apps, you won't need to create a new mailbox and forward mail or anything, you can simply create up to 50 users (for free) under your domain and use gmail.

I can offer you no answer for the mail you send but you can use the following to get all your mail in both computers inbox. In your account settings you can setup what to do with mail you just received. Set one machine to: leave messages on server. Set the other machine to: delete messages on server after 30 days The 30 days setting is just a random number ...

One way to prevent the account from filling is to have the other account that you are pulling from delete messages after X days. And pick X to be a sufficiently large number so that even if gmail fails to pull for a few days nothing will be lost.

I'm not aware that it is possible to query Gmail for unlabeled emails using the POP3 or IMAP protocols. One solution to bypass this is to go to Gmail, find all those emails and label them with a new label (perhaps temporary). Then, pick the "IMAP folder" (which is actually a label in Gmail world) with that same new label name to download, and retrieve the ...

before i remember that this feature has 30 days expire date. Did it message it to you, when config it? Another guess is that your server config for POP3 clients that if they refresh more than for example 4 times, then block it, and when you reconfigure another IP in Gmail check that. Please Contact with your host administrator

Most of your mature webmail apps should be able to do that. Certainly Gmail can poll POP3 mailboxes without issue. It's a 3-step process: Open Settings (found under the "gear" icon" and select Accounts and Import. Click on Add a POP3 mail account you own. Enter the email address. Fill out the necessary server information and choose the options you want. ...

First: Be sure to specify in your email client account settings the proper address, protocol, port and encryption for the connection, as instructed here: http://email.about.com/od/accessinggmail/f/Gmail_POP3_Settings.htm Second: For what you want to achieve (exporting your list of contacts) google takeout seems to be the best fitting solution.

Gmail pop settings are as follows: Email: something@somewhere.com Username: something@somewhere.com server: pop.googlemail.com port: 995 another thing, you need to login first to something@somewhere.com gmail's web interface, and enable pop3 access to it, otherwise you will not be able to access it through pop, you will find it in the settings.

Check Filters from Settings. If there's nothing in Accounts and Forwarding, its likely that you created a filter to forward spam mails.

The way POP can work by default means that once a message is downloaded it will no longer appear in the original mailbox (I.e. Gmail checks for new messages, grabs them from pop.Tom.com and now the inbox in pop.Tom.com is empty). If you found an old client in one place, I suspect you have another one that is grabbing your mail. To confirm, change your ...

You can setup a forward in your Yahoo email account. This way as soon as the email arrives in your Yahoo mailbox it will be immediately forwarded to Gmail. Then, you can setup send email as under Gmail settings -> Accounts and Import so you can send all your emails from whichever account you want directly from Gmail.

Username: username@yourdomain.com POP3 server: pop.gmail.com Use SSL: Yes Port: 995

I just tried it and it uses method #2. Each email that arrives is assigned a unique UIDL which never changes. So, no, you won't get duplicated messages as long as your email client checks the UIDL's.
