Hi,

What webmail is good to use to pop3 your email messages?

Gmail is a problem for me because it automatically pop3 my emails without an option to disable automatic mail fetching. Unless someone knows how to do it.

        Gmail has the feature when you can have emails inbound and outbound from outlook. In fact, you can use it with any service and email from gmail so it appears you are emailing from your domain say, xyz.com but you use Gmail.

    I suggest you to use google. You can use your own domain for free ! Best uptime ever, nice tools for iPhone and much more.

    Google all the way !

    MindReality, why not use MSN Hotmail? Outlook is from Microsoft just like Hotmail, maybe both can do the transfer of files or emails you want.

    I have Gmail, Yahoo Mail and Hotmail.

    Gmail cannot disable automatic Pop3 which is quite annoying.

    Yahoo Mail and Hotmail do not have imap, which means I cannot transfer all my old emails from outlook to store on in them.

    I have posted a message in gmail forums to disable automatic pop3.

    I hope more people would join in to request that feature from gmail!

    I have used a lot of email services in the past. The best free one I have found is GMail from Google. I use outlook on my pc and gmail stores all of my mail on their server as well so if i lose my mail file on my pc I still have my emails. I dont know if there is a way to upload your old mail to the free gmail service, you may have to pay for their premium service to be able to do that.

        The posfix website doesn't have an easy explanation of what it is all about. It says something about sendmail. I am wondering if it is something like creating your own email server.

            Are you able to access all your emails on the server through a webmail interface?

    I can't imagine using anything other than Google Apps GMail for domains. I used SquirrelMail and others, geez, even as far back as Pegasus Mail. GMail is a little overprotective as far as spam goes, but is really a great system and ties in well with the other Google apps.

    Postfix is very much like sendmail, it is just better suited for scaling out and delivering massive amounts of email very quickly. It also is well organized in sending several emails destined for a single server on the same connection, I believe. That doesn't fit the bill on what this guy is trying to accomplish. He'd need SquirrellMail or the like. Again, Google Apps for Domains GMail.

    There are lots of e-mail provider sites in the market. People are using all these websites. If you have problem with your gmail account then you can switch to Hotmail and Sify mail.com. These are also wonderful email provider sites. These are secure and easy to use email sites.

    What do you mean transfer files from Outlook? The paid version of Yahoo mail $20 per year allows you to get Yahoo mail from inside Outlook. I use Outlook and Thunderbird myself.

    Aaaaand another one for Gmail. I've backup up emails from other locations straight into Gmail, so I can vouch that it works. My intermediate was Thunderbird, though, but Outlook should be more than capable of pulling it off.

    Thunderbird works flawlessly with Gmail via IMAP or POP. I highly recommend it. Especially since it's free!
