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. -Mika

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