Google to add POP access to Gmail

Posted on Thursday, November 11 2004 @ 21:40 CET by Thomas De Maesschalck
Google said that users of its e-mail service Gmail will soon receive POP access to their accounts. This will allow them to read their e-mail in programs like Microsoft Outlook or on handheld devices like mobile phones.

Google said it is adding POP, or point of presence, access to Gmail for all users over the next couple of weeks. The move will enable Gmail users to download a copy of their messages through other e-mail programs and devices that support POP.

Using POP access, Gmail users would also be able to view their messages offline.
