Source Gmail POP3 Configuration
I received several emails lately that asked me how to setup email clients so that they could retrieve Gmail
emails using the POP3 protocol. The Gmail POP3 configuration is fortunately not that complex: The major problem that most users run into is that POP3 has to be enabled in the Gmail web interface before they can actually retrieve their emails in another email client.
Enabling POP3 in Gmail is therefor a two-step process. POP3 needs to be enabled on the Gmail website first before the other email client is configured to connect to Gmail using the POP3 protocol.
