New in Gmail: The Mail Fetcher   

logo1.gif There it was again early this morning, in one of my Google applications; a announcement in red font: 'New Features'.

This time a feature that many people, not able to either forward or redirect from other accounts, impatiently have been waiting for: 'Get mail from other accounts'.

This is a beautiful option, as it enables you to check for the mail you receive at your other email accounts from within Gmail.

Gmail: You can retrieve your mail (new and old) from up to five other email accounts and have them all in Gmail. Then you can even create a customized 'From:' address, which lets you send messages from Gmail, but have them look like they were sent from another one of your email accounts. Please note that you can only retrieve mail from accounts that have POP3 access enabled.

The feature is currently only enabled for a limited number of users. Google says it's working on making it more available soon. As I don't know how big this limited pool of users i, you'll have to check yourself under the 'Accounts' tab in Settings.
