Gmail from a PC client?

Hey all,

Does anyone know if it's possible to fix up a PC client app (such as
Agent or Outlook) to access a Gmail account?

If not, does anyone know of a good free email provider which you can
access using such a client program?

Gmail offers POP access. Free.

Aventuremail requires a $5 initial fee, then it's free (forever, they
say) thereafter.

Fastmail offers free IMAP, but size is limited.

x-privat offers free POP email:

Try a web search; eg
<http://uk.search.yahoo.com/search?fr...20POP%20email&
ei=ISO-8859-1> or <http://makeashorterlink.com/?O29C1352D>.

Naturally, if you aren't paying a fee for the service, there will sooner
or later be adverts for you or your recipients to gaze at and admire.

One possible method in the UK, may be to set up a PAYG 'free' dial-up ISP
account, just for the sake of the included email address. You can usually
receive incoming emails using your POP client from any ISP connection;
sending with that address in the From header can often be done by setting
up your client to use the SMTP server of the ISP you are actually
connected to the internet by. Alternatively, you may be able to
'authenticate' using you username and password for the PAYG account and
use their SMTP server for sending. As long as you actually use the PAYG
dial-up connection occasionally, to keep it 'active', the email account is
virtually free. You also get a handy back-up internet access for when yor
usual ISP connection isn't working )
