I recently purchased an iPhone and decided to switch my PowWeb hosted POP e-mail accounts to Gmail’s free IMAP offerings. Doing this enabled me to read, move, and delete messages on either my iPhone or Laptop and not have to do the same thing again on the other device.
One of my requirements for this change to succeed was that anyone with my existing e-mail address would not have to make any changes. They’d still send to the same address, and e-mail from me would still appear to come from the same address.
I outline the steps I took to accomplish this below.
