POP3 mail fetcher in Google Mail / Gmail - can it be accessed by POP itself?


Say for example I set up Mail Fetcher in a gmail account - for example in


I want to retrieve me@pop3.com and me2@otherpop3.com into this account...

Can all the messages fetched by me.me@googlemail.com be downloaded into a pop3 client (ie. the fetched messages as well as the ones that have been sent to the address as normal?)

You'll be able to read email from up to 5 additional accounts, all in one place
You can choose to leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server, use a secure connection (SSL) when fetching mail and automatically archive new mail.
