Multiple e-mail addresses

Found 23rd Aug 2009
Is there an on line email manager that allows you to import web based mail? I have just tried GMX , which works OK with pop mail but not otherwise.

I normally use Thunderbird which allows this, but I want to the manager on multiple computers and a web based solution seems to fit the bill

I have loads of yahoo e-mail addresses and I find a g-mail account will look them all up for me, pop3 I think.

A lot to read, having given it a quick scan it seems I have to host it somewhere, though I haven't seen that it can do web based mail yet.

Just to be clear what I mean by web based mail, an example is a free @yahoo.com address or a free @mail.com address. These do not offer pop mail unless you pay extra. Thunderbird has a way of logging in so that they can be collected together and be read in one place.

My free yahoo address does not have pop3? Apparantly you only get this with a paid for account.

Mine are all free and it works, give it a go.

Goto options, mail options, pop & e-mail forwarding, then it'll take you to classic and it should give you the options there. Although all you really need to do is set up the yahoo accounts in googlemail.

"Free Yahoo POP3 Email account available at:-
- Yahoo Singapore
- Yahoo Hong Kong
- Yahoo India
- Yahoo UK"


Taken from another site, might be the answer.

You could set your e-mails to forward probably?

I get this:
Your request cannot be completed., this is a Premium Service. Additionally I use addresses other than Yahoo.

Well if thunderbird fits the bill you could use the portable apps version and put a USB stick on your keys then you would always have it with you.

pop3 is still an option, but for web mail without pop3, you provide the login and it gets the mail. It lists the following, but I also managed to access some others that are not listed :

Google mail does the same, you provide the details and it gets the mail for you. I think it uses pop3 tho. Don't ask me the difference between pop3 and not pop3 tho as I don't have a clue!

Yes always have it with me. Loads of great apps and use the web browser so I can save all my bookmarks. Covers just about everything you can think of. Also handy when using others computers that dont have upto date virus software.

Dont use it myself as only have one web based email that I only use when away from home so I can access it from my mobile.
