    Use Gmail to “collect” your POP3 email?

    Gmail?

    Masses of space, searching and pop3 download options there too. Offline mail available. Use it for work & home on android. seamless integration especially with google now

    When I used POP3 I used to select the ‘leave email on server’ option.

    Then I realised the same server supported IMAP which is far better.

    This, or set up forwarding of your pop3 email to a gmail address. Either way Gmail is the answer.

    this, or depending on who your current email is with they may support auto-forward to gmail/hotmail – I do this with my virginmedia account as I mainly use hotmail.

    Gmail. And don’t bother confusing things by downloading to a thick mail client, just use the gmail web client on any pc you use.

    In Laymans terms, sign up for a gmail account and use gmail through your internet browser on your pc and any email app on your mobile devices.

    They say this place is full of IT bods, and everytime I ask an IT question it goes well here, even tough I know damn well most of you are not IT bods..

    I have always used POP3 – inertia I suppose. If an email is downloaded to my main PC (at work, self employed) it is stored there, and deleted from the server.
    I like/need to keep some messages, including attachments.

    I am moving away and will not be usiong the main PC for a good long while. So moving forward I do not know what to do..

    I had considered storing them on the server, but I think this might use up my server space quick..

    I use android devices and ipad.
    I am aware that there are other email protocols. Any ideas/recommendations?
