Fetch email from multiple accounts with Gmail

Google’s Gmail now lets you grab email from all your accounts. Many folks have been waiting for this feature, though I’ve long since migrated all my email accounts to Gmail (I still have one too many addresses, but that’s another story).

More info available at Gmail’s What’s New center:


Get mail from other accounts
Now Gmail can check for the mail you receive at your other email accounts. You can retrieve your mail (new and old) from up to five other email accounts and have them all in Gmail. Then you can even create a customized ‘From:’ address, which lets you send messages from Gmail, but have them look like they were sent from another one of your email accounts. Please note that you can only retrieve mail from accounts that have POP3 access enabled.

This feature is currently only enabled for a limited number of users. We’re working on making it more available soon. Look for it in the ‘Accounts’ tab in Settings.

and detailed instructions at Gmail’s Help Center.

This plays very nicely into Google’s plans to charge Gmail users for additional storage.
