Using a POP3 Mailer to read your Gmail account

Follow these steps to configure your Gmail account

  1. Use your web browser to log into your Gmail account.

  2. On the right side of the screen click on the down arrow to drop down the Settings menu.

  3. On the drop-down Settings menu click on Settings.

  4. On the Settings screen click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

  5. On the Forwarding and POP/IMAP screen select the options as shown below.
    This will allow the POP3 mailer on your home computer (Windows Mail, Outlook,
    Outlook Express or Eudora) to retrieve your mail from the GMail mail server and
    will leave a copy of your messages in the Trash when you retrieve them. Be sure
    to click on |Save Changes| before closing continuing.

GMail provides specific instructions for how to set up and configure
Apple Mail, BlackBerry, iPhone, Outlook, Thunderbird, Windows Mail, and Other
Click on this link and choose your type of POP3 device/software about halfway

Retrieving email from your other email accounts

GMail can access your other email accounts (such as your BU account, your
MyMTS account, your wcgwave account, etc.) and collect all your email into
your one GMail account. This means you get all your email in one place and,
since GMail has excellent spam filters, most of the spam is filtered out and put in the Spam folder of your GMail account.
