Making a Gmail POP3 account can really come in handy and the good thing about that is configuring such an account is not at all complex. There is just an easy two-step process for configuring your Gmail POP3 account for receiving your mails in another client. First, you have to enable your Gmail POP3 account so that you receive all your mails in another email client. After you have enabled the account, then you just have to provide the data to create a POP3 account. Creating a POP3 account is as simple as that.
Here, both the steps are explained clearly:
Step 1-Enabling your Gmail POP3 account
To enable your Gmail account, all you have to do is access your Gmail account by logging through www.gmail.com. After you have successfully logged in, click on the “settings” link located on the top-right corner of the screen. Click on the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” link on the screen.
Now you have two choices- Either you can enable POP3 for all the mails i.e. the ones that have been already downloaded and the ones to be received in the future or you can enable POP3 for only the mails which are to be received in the future.
After making your choice click on the “save changes” button and this will save the fed configuration information.
Step 2- Providing the data
Now that you have enabled your Gmail POP3 account, you can create an account now. Even though the procedure varies from one email client to another, the common values or fields that you are required to fill are as below.
Email Address: Your Gmail email address
POP Password: Your Gmail password
Outgoing Server: smtp.gmail.com
Outgoing server (SMTP) port: 587
Server Address: pop.gmail.com
Incoming Server Port: 995
TLS/SSL required: Yes
