Access other email accounts on Gmail

By w.avenue
Do you know that you can access your emails from other email accounts and transfer it to your Gmail account? As long as your other email accounts support POP email access, then you can.

You first have to log in to your Gmail account and go to Settings. Select the Accounts tab, then on the section on getting mail from other accounts, click on Add another mail account. A pop up window will appear wherein you have to enter the email address of your other account. Then click on Next Step. You will then be asked to enter your password.

Next, you will find different options that you can choose from to customize your email experience. You can opt to leave a copy of retrieved messages on the server if you want to see the email on its original email account.

Having a secure connection is probably a no-brainer option. If you want to identify which email came from your other accounts, you may want to label incoming messages. And if you want to archive your incoming messages, then also select this option. When you are done, just click on Add Account. Then wait a few minutes for Gmail to successfully add your account.

And if ever you want to stop receiving email from other accounts, then you just have to go to Settings, Accounts, and then delete the email account. And you are done!
