I have Win 7 64-bit with MS Outlook 2007. I also have another computer with WinXP and Outlook Express. For some reason, I can no longer POP GMAIL e-mails in either client. I have to IMAP them. However, IMAP, as far as I know, only calls up the e-mail body when you are connected online. In case anything happens to the GMAIL account, I would like to have a permanent archive/copy of my mail. Is there a way to do this? Please help. Thanks in advance.
