A customer emailed us today with a question we hear often from people who have other (usually POP3) emails attached to their Gmail accounts. We have this trouble to with our [email protected] addresses.
Here’s the Q and A:
Question: I’m having a hard time getting e-mail from [email protected]
It seems it takes about 30-40 minutes for one to show up. Any ideas on how I can get them quicker ?
Answer: This is a Gmail issue, easily (but inconveniently) solved.
In the upper right hand corner of your account, you’ll see your name with a ‘cog’ icon beside it.
Click on the cog, then “mail settings” from the dropdown menu.
Under “Settings”, choose the “Accounts and Import” tab.
Scroll down to “Check mail using POP3:” and click on the “Check mail now” link.
This will force Gmail to check the server and download your email.
