Google, you creep show

Gmail just asked me if I wanted to import all my mail from another email account of mine. How can I figure out if I've ever told Gmail I own this account? Or is this just google being creepy as hell again? [more inside]

I tried to be good and it went bad: help me recover my Gmail from the clutches of my computer.

After reading this AskMe, I decided to use Mac's Mail program to keep copies of my messages on my gmail account on my computer. However, I wanted to use the "IMAP" option to keep copies of all my mail both on the web, in gmail, and on my computer, in Mac Mail. Instead, something else happened and now I'm in trouble.

Receiving Google Apps mail in Outlook 2000

I'm having a great deal of trouble receiving my University email in Outlook 2000. My University uses Google Apps, which allows me to use Gmail as my webmail service, but does not assign me a Google or Gmail account. The domain of my email address is myuniversity.edu, not gmail.com. For this reason, Outlook does not recognize the username and password that I use to log into my email (through my university's website). I have tried following gmail's tutorial (complicated by the fact that they don't offer one for Outlook 2000) with no success. I've tried reporting my incoming mail server as both pop.gmail.com and pop.myuniversity.edu. Any ideas? Did I miss any important info?

Bizarre IMAP mail server setup

I want to run a mail server on my computer so that I can feed email from different POP accounts into an IMAP account. The weird part is I don't care to access by IMAP over the web, but I do want to POP it into GMail. Confused? Me too. [more inside]

Can Gmail delete the trash on my POP account?

Gmail appears to have failed me. AskMe, show me the light. I use Gmail to retrieve my email from my vanity domain via POP. All is good, except for it appears that Gmail does not actually delete emails on the POP account when you delete and trash it in Gmail. Now my vanity domain email account is maxed out with several months worth of deleted email & spam clogging it. [more inside]

unPOP gmail autosaved drafts!

When I'm writing an email using Gmail, every draft version of it ends up on my BlackBerry because of the autosave feature. If I take my time writing, this can add up to an insane number of drafts popping up, and drives me batty. How can I prevent this from happening without switching POP access on and off manually, and without disabling autosave?

Mail.app Hates Me And My Mail

I have a Gmail account and a university email account (IMAP), both configured through OSX's Mail (the IMAP is only for sending mail; all incoming mail comes through the Gmail account). Lately, none of my email has been showing up in Mail (I know this because I've started keeping Gmail Notifier on the menubar as a double-check). It's not just that it takes a while to collect; it just never actually appears in my Mail.app inbox. I've double checked all my settings against Google's instructions, and even removed and re-added the mailbox. Any ideas as to what could have gone wrong and how I could fix it?

gmail pop work around?

Is there a way to connect to gmail using pop from behind a firewall that blocks the ports they specify? Ideally over 80? I don't have broadband at home so setting up a tunnel or variation to a pc on the outside isn't an option. Thunderbird on WinXP connected behind a typical corporate firewall.

Gmail, meet Thunderbird. Now work and filter!

I have an awful lot of email filtered/labelled and filed within Gmail. When I download it via POP using Thunderbird, is there any way of it automatically going into specific folders within Thunderbird? :)

How to stop Gmail popping forward upon loading or reloading Firefox?

Gmail consistently pops forward upon loading or reloading on Firefox, and did so when I was using Mozilla. This really bugs me, and I don't like using tabs. Can anyone tell me how to make this stop? iMac 10.3.5, did this to me before on my "toilet seat" laptop.
