[access-uk] Re: Google Mail

Hi Douglas,

Firstly you need an invitation to join gmail.  Just ask and I will send you one 
:).

Secondly, you will need to set up POP access from the web interface, and your 
client needs to be capable of using an SSL connection.  I just use Sltunnel to 
get round this, can send you details if necessary.

Andrew.

Subject: [access-uk] Google Mail

As Google appear at last to have provided us with a way round the 
verification code hurdle, I have been thinking about trying out Google Mail.

If any list member actually uses Gmail I would be grateful for clarification 
on  two points.  

Firstly, is it difficult to set up for POP3 access with a normal client - I 
don´t 
usually find webmail interfaces particularly convenient. 

Secondly, I already have a Google account and password which I use for 
example to read Newsgroups etc..   Would this be suffficient to enable me 
to get a Gmail account -  it talks about needing an invitation?  

Thanks in advance for any help,


Douglas
