POP Access for GMail.

November 12, 04 by Bharani

Gmail has introduced “Pop Access” and “Email Forwarding” features. Here’s what it has to say…

“It’s your mail. You should be able to choose how and where you read it. Access your mail the way you want to, with free POP access and automatic forwarding. You can even switch to other email services without having to worry about losing access to your messages. Think of it as email portability.”
Cool!
