getting fsmail and gmail thro outlook

  markcomp 10:09 27 Oct 04

For some obscure reason I have four email accounts, when I suppose the maximum that I practically need is two! That aside, as I use outlook in the main for checking work emails and the mail account linked to our broadband, it would be useful to view both the fsmail account and gmail account thro the same outlook interface. Is this possible. I read that Hotmail cannot be picked up this way as they do support the pop3 protocol.....what is that anyway. Is it the same with these other providers?

See following for setting up fsmail in Outlook Express

For Outlook I think the seetings are the same, just go to Tools, services and add Internet mail.

Don't know if you can access your gmail e-mail through Outlook at the moment.

POP3 is a protocol used for recieving e-mail.

I don't think you can access your fsmail in e-mail client,I could be wrong,the link provided is for freeserve,which is different from fsmail.if anyone finds out how to do it I'd be very grateful. tried all ways I know but no joy.DG

If you take a look at the new features list you can optionally forward emails to another account and if that is no good get gmail notifier

click here

it loads to your system tray and allerts you to if there are any messages in your mailbox.

Ahh sorry, read original posting too quick. Don't think you can access fsmail account through Outlook. Think it is just web based.

As creature of the nite says you can forward to another account, which I do if there's anything I want to save.otherwise I just delete it on line after reading,it's no problem when you're always connected. DG
