Yes! Finally I’ve been POPed
I saw the vital signs
Changed the settings
and there was the final result
…but believe me you won’t like it that much….I miss the labels. Even the headers of the mails are messedup?? All the emails from Gmail Team regarding the invitations I sent out were dated 11/16/2004 and had the timestamp of the time when I downloaded them, other emails’ headers seems to be messedup too (not sure though) 😕
I have messages from Apr thru August and then I don’t see any message from sep. 1 – today (except those old messages which are dated wrong.)…wonders what happened to them. I tried to check the header of the emails, to find an indication if I can use the labels in Outlook or not (thru message rules) but I couldn’t find anything.
I’ll update it if I find something else wrong.
Update1: Here is a utility which claims:
# psGmail lets you access Gmail accounts with any POP email program.
# You can specify which kind of mail (unread, all, spam,…) you want psGmail to retrieve.
# In addition to standard Gmail categories you can use custom labels or even keyword and date filters.
# After downloading mail, psGmail can delete or archive it, mark it read or do nothing.
# psGmail also offers an SMTP service that allows you to send mail and replies.
# Using MSN Messenger-style pop-ups, psGmail announces new mail in Gmail accounts.
# psGmail supports Windows 98/ME/NT/2000/3/XP
…but I would refrain myself from using it, I’ll only use something which is authenticated by a lot of people or is official.
Update2: Found the answer for not all the messages being downloaded.
# Are you only able to receive some of your mail?
After you first enable POP in your Gmail account, your messages become available in batches as our servers communicate with your mail client. It may take some time for all of your mail to download if you have lots of messages.
Also, please ensure that your POP client is configured to fully download messages. Make sure that you selected ‘Remove from server,’ not ‘leave on server.’ For more information, please visit the configuration instructions.
If you continue to experience problems, please delete some of the messages you’ve already downloaded from the Gmail POP server.
