You can't "turn this off" as far as I know, however, you can set up a filter that automatically archives, or even deletes these informative messages. Personally, I archive all these messages and apply a label, so I can easily find them again if I really need to. Gmail used to prefix the subject line with "Message left on server:" which made it easy to ...

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.

I had the same issue while setting up to retrieval of email from my suite into my Gmail personal account. Called Google support to be able to fix it. There were 4 things needed: Gmail account/Settings/Forwarding and POP-IMAP/Enable pop for all mail Needs to be turned ON Admin console/Security/Advanced security settings Have Less secure apps set as "Allow ...

Google makes this possible. Go to https://myaccount.google.com/security, and click on the "Sign In and Security" header in the left sidebar. Then in the "Password and Sign In Method" card, select "App Passwords" Select the environment you are creating this for (i.e. Windows Computer) Then it will generate a password for you. When you set up your POP3 in ...

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.

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.

From Check email from other accounts with Gmail - Gmail Help You can add up to 5 accounts, including Gmail and other email providers. One alternative is, instead of using POP to get the email messages, configure the other accounts to automatically forward the new email messages to your Gmail account.

Those steps are correct for example if you go to your settings and go to the Forwarding and POP/IMAP tab you will see three sections: Forwarding, POP Download, and IMAP Access. With this said the steps straight from Google are as follows: On the second account (the one mail is to be pulled FROM): Click on the Gear icon in upper right corner. Click on ...

It turns out that using OpenPop to retrieve the entire message does work. It can 'miss' a message if another pop3 client has already downloaded it before OpenPop gets to it (that's why I saw GetMessageUids() return 0 - I was debugging step by step). One can get around this by prefixing one's username with "recent:" in Pop3Client.Authenticate(). This will ...

This forwarding from AOL to Gmail can no longer be done. When I inquired of AOL I received this response (11/9/18): Thank you for contacting the AOL Email Support Team. Unfortunately, at this moment, there is no option available that satisfies your needs. The only option to forward emails is manually, one by one. Rest assured that your email has not ...

You just need to wait it out. I've had this exact same issue (twice now!). Each time, I fiddled around with my postfix and dovecot settings for a few hours in vain. In the end, it was just a matter of giving it a few hours for Google to see the new cert.

Google support suggests that if you're migrating from one Gmail/Google Apps account to a different Gmail/Google Apps account, just use POP3 between them. (Directions here) However, you want to only copy/move some of the messages. I would use a third-party email client that can connect to Gmail via IMAP. (Thunderbird would probably be my choice.) Connect ...

Generally, when users set up IMAP, the biggest complaints focus on the initial syncing from the server in-box to the user's in-box, often taking an extended period while the 1,000's of emails on the server are transferred to Outlook. This is completely avoidable and for many entirely unnecessary. A lot depends upon how often the users rely on indexed ...

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.

Yes, it will as long as I select the "for all mail ever" POP option in gmail settings.

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

Yahoo doesn't allow for POP access without their premium services. They do however offer it if you sign up for Yahoo Plus services. Yahoo! Mail Plus

I am quite late to respond the thread. Recently I did the same task which I am going to share. You can backup Gmail account data by using the free Google takeout tool. But it will create .mbox file for backed up emails which cannot be open or imported directly into MS Outlook. For that you need to convert MBOX file to PST format using a reliable tool ...

Use Gmail Takeout: https://www.google.com/settings/takeout This will leave you with an mbox file. Use Aid4Mail to convert that to a .PST: http://www.aid4mail.com

POP3 is not possible because, I think, it doesn't sync labels. The only other thing is to setup Outlook to only sync specific labels (with IMAP). Possibly another mail client (like Thunderbird or Evolution) would perform better?


1

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

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.
