Check other POP3 email accounts within Gmail

Yep, you read that right.  Login to Gmail, go to settings, then accounts, and you should see “Get mail from other accounts”, allowing you to check your other email accounts through your Gmail interface.

Personally, I’m not into giving them access to absolutely everything, but there are still hordes of people out there that still believe Google isn’t evil and they’re more than willing to let them get their hands into anything and everything.

    Gmail is not perfect yet. I have 3 Gmail accounts . One for business, one for friends and one throw away. I have to log out and log in to each one to see the emails.

    Gmail would be perfect if it would let me see all 3 accounts at the same time. THEN, it would be perfect!

    You may be able to do that, via one of two methods. Let’s assume you have accounts #1, #2, and #3, and #1 is the only one you want to have to login to.

    Log into #2 & #3 into settings (top right) from there, enable forwarding and forward the emails to #1.

    If that doesn’t work, go back into settings for accounts #2 & #3 and enable POP3, then go into #1 and have it check #2 & #3 via POP3.
