Previously, I posted about using Google apps to take care of your websites email needs.
Or, to start using a new product, you don't have to create another Google Account.
Just sign in with your existing Google Account, and visit this list of products to get started.
Between email forwarding and Gmail’s Mail Fetcher and Send As features, Gmail is a capable email client.
Forwarding ensures email reaches your main inbox immediately.
If you add a non-Gmail address, you’ll probably want to provide its SMTP server information — you can get this information from the other email service.
When you use SMTP, Gmail sends the email through the other account’s email servers.To get around the waiting, enable the button in Gmail, so you can check your POP accounts immediately.(As with all Labs features, this feature could be removed at any time.) Getting all your emails into one inbox is only half the battle.Click it to confirm that you own your main account.After confirming, you can use the Forwarding options on your other account to forward all email to your main email address. Enter the email address of your other email account.The workaround that solves this is simple, consolidate your email accounts into one login.
