Download messages from other Email Accounts

Saturday, March 29, 2008

You guys can download messages from other Email Accounts using Gmail's Mail Fetcher (It has got restrictions up to only five other Email Accounts). Setting up Mail Fetcher is Easy as well as free to use, but for this to happen your email accounts must support POP.

You guys wanna know how to setup Mail Fetcher, then you guys need to go through the steps which GMail has provided for us.

To set up Mail Fetcher, here are the steps to follow:

  1. Click Settings from the top of any email page.
  2. Click Accounts.
  3. In the Get mail from other accounts section, click Add another mail account.
  4. Enter the full email address of the account you'd like to access, then click Next Step.
  5. Google will populate the Username and POP Server fields when possible, based on your email address. Enter your Password.
  6. Decide what options to choose:
    • Leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server
    • Always use a secure connection (SSL) when retrieving mail
    • Label incoming messages
    • Archive incoming messages
  7. Click Add Account.
  8. Once your account has been added successfully, you'll have the option of setting it as a custom From address. This allows you to compose messages in Gmail, but have them appear to be sent from your other email account. Click Yes to set up a custom From address.
This will really helps, to view all your messages at one location which are coming from different Email Accounts.
