Pop3/imap/smtp

Does anyone know how I can find the addresses for POP3/IMAP for my incoming mail for my Gmail as I'm trying to set it up for outlook and SMTP for my outgoing mail..

Does anyone know the servers?

    I imagine the people at google do.

    As far as we are concerned, it's a web based email system.

    yes, it's only webmail at the moment, but they're going to support pop3 retrieval so gmail can download your mail from pop servers as a standard, similar to what hotmail does (or used to do)

    as for smtp if i remember right most UK isp's deny access to smtp servers that aren't on the isp's network , so if you're on btopenworld you (might be) forced to use their SMTP server to send outgoing mail , this woulden't really be a problem since you configure the "from" address from your outlook client, and can send e-mail from outlook that would appear to come from your gmail.

    retrieving your gmail e-mail in outlook is at the moment impossible, although there are rumoured plans to support it at a modest subscription fee (aswell as being able to pay to make your gmail ad-less)

    hth.

    how bizarre, the day you ask that question is the day an application is developed to do such a thing...
