Gmail fetches from non-Gmail accounts

Gmail is in the process of rolling out a new service called Mail Fetcher which allows you to check up to 5 non-Gmail accounts.

Now Gmail can check for the mail you receive at your other email accounts. You can retrieve your mail (new and old) from up to five other email accounts and have them all in Gmail. Then you can even create a customized ‘From:’ address, which lets you send messages from Gmail, but have them look like they were sent from another one of your email accounts. Please note that you can only retrieve mail from accounts that have POP3 access enabled.

This feature is currently only enabled for a limited number of users. We’re working on making it more available soon. Look for it in the ‘Accounts’ tab in Settings.

I use multiple personalities in Eudora on my own machine, but this is useful when checking-in from elsewhere.
