I have to give up my Quicksilver domain (sold my business) and am considering opening a GMAIL account.
With Quicksilver, when I closed my office PC Mail client then I could collect my emails on my QTek directly (ie not using the browser and webmail).
Can I do the same if I am using GMAIL?

Yes, it will work the same, but GMAIL's POP3 implementation is not the same, probably because of having all messages in the same inbox, etc...

It would be nice if they actually had an IMAP access, not only POP3.

The configuration is the same as the one for Outlook, all very well explained in the Help pages.

"...explained in the Help pages."

Thanks Mauricio. Is that the GMAIL or the Outlook help pages?
(Don't use Outlook, but Opera)

In the GMAIL help pages they list all servers and ports needed for the proper configuration of a POP3 client (any).

Send private message (login name and password required for smtp - same as pop3)

login: (use whole address, not just your username)
pass: duh

let me know your email address via PM if you need a gmail invite
