whether it's feasible to use pop3 for gmail depends on the number of
messages you have on your gmail account. If you use the gmail account
for getting mail and store it locally it's no problem to use pop3. If
you keep all messages on the server pop3 is the wrong protocol, imap4
would be the right protocol for server based mail storing.
Unfortunately gmail does not support it.
I don't like adding support for specific servers. On the other hand
there are many requests for gmail support so we may add it in the
CU Robert :-)
