Gmail Pop Support

I finally realized today that the Gmail’s free pop support not only allows email downloading, but also provides an smtp server for your email client of choice to use. So I’m going to use Apple’s Mail client regularly again for the first time in over a year. The added bonus of using Mail under Tiger (MacOS X 10.4) is that all my email will be immediately accessible through Spotlight.

I also noticed that Gmail supports setting your reply to email address as something other than your Gmail account which is cool but not something I’ll be using in the near future since I’m perfectly happy with my Gmail address.
