I am using my GMail as a repository for lists that I am subscribed to. I can still take advantage of the Google search features. I am not using it to forward to another POP account, however, though I easily could.

One thing though is I think you can configure Gmail to forward all your
messages to a pop3 client like Outlook Express, Eudorra, Outlook, etc.

I have never switched to Gmail either.  The only advantages I see might be:
*Ability to receive large attachments;
*The Gmail name; and
*Ability to store and later search for messages, but I don't know how this
would work if you forward mail to pop3 and use a client.  Also this is
negated by the primary web site being largely inaccessible.

I notice though a lot of podcasters use Gmail.

I fully agree, gmail has never properly worked for me and after several
tries, I abandoned it.
