an email to yourself from the same email account using Mozilla Thunderbird. It will go but never download to your computer. It will stay on the server in the inbox. Just make sure to use the correct settings. I like to combine my 2 email accounts and use message filters, instead on using separate email accounts for checking.
I use Pop3
imap.gmail.com SSL Port 995
smtp.gmail.com TLS Port 587
Remember to change the settings, forwarding and Pop/Imap on the webserver so you'll get email notifications.
All emails come to the inbox and then I use message filters that sort out my emails. I track some emails from this forum and then it goes to the CNET folder, so I know to check this folder first.
Just remember you cannot email yourself emails using POP3 or imap.
I use Tbird 2.009 and have it downloading my mail from gmail via pop3 access
Over past few months something weird has developed - when I email myself from Tbird (ie from my gmail address to my gmail address) as a way of senidng myslef info or reminders, the mail successfully sends but:
- The message shows in the inbox of gmail site (ie when I manually log in to my gmail account via a web browser)
- The message does NOT show/get sent to my inbox in thunderbird! Which was the orginal intent!
It is like either gmail, tbird or my AV (avg but I checke d the settings and cant se it intefering) is stopping the message from me/to me of being pushed down to my desktop in Tbird
Major pain - any help appreciated!
