    Default Mail, Google Mail and pop3

    Hey all

    got a question.. have recently setup mail.app to have my gmail collected via IMAP.. and how sweet it is.

    inside gmail (settings), i have also added my pop3 domain so i can also check this account from within gmail while at work from a browser.

    my question is, will my gmail imap account receive mails from this pop3 server within mail.app?

    i have been receiving a few duplicates, but not all.. so im wondering if i can remove my pop3 account within mail.app, and simply rely upon imap??

    has anyone else done this, and is it a good idea?

    sorry if the above in confusing.. i have re read and seems ok?

    cheers all

    My gmail account within mail.app is only set up as imap - but I still sometimes go in via web to view.

    Why do you need to do that?

    There is a handy little guide that talks you through how to set up your folders within mail.app and also how to set gmail imap on your iphone - but I can't lay my hands on it at the moment, maybe try googling?

    My question was really why you need pop when you have set up imap?

    thats the thing i dont need pop

    my questions is can i remove my pop for @tri-studios.net, cause i have added this account into GMAIL, so it will check

    i guess the ultimate question is will it only check via web interface, or will it also be pushed via imap to mail.app

    Send yourself a test email and see if it works. To @tri-studios.net that is.
