Consolidate your email addresses
Gmail has a new feature that allows you to funnel mail addressed to various internet email accounts (gmail or any other service that supports pop3)into a single Gmail inbox. This is useful when you have many mailboxes to check - personal mail, family mail, user-response mailboxes attached to specific blogs and websites, etc., and checking all of them regularly becomes an easy-to-forget nuisance. You can also choose to retain the original address (e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org) as the "From" address, even when replying from Gmail. To add additional accounts to Gmail, select settings/accounts/add another email address. Note that you must enable pop3 in the email accounts before they can funneled to your default Gmail account.
