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, ...

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 ...

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

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 ...

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.

You can't. Polling a external account works when you have a legacy account, that you don't want to abandon, but it's not very important. If you want to be sure the account is checked frequently, add it as a separated account in the Android device (you can leave the messages in the server if you want this mails consolidated in 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 ...

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 ...

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.

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. ...

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.
