Access your Gmail.com (Google Mail) Account from an Email Program using IMAP
Gmail.com (Google Mail) provides IMAP access to your Gmail.com (Google Mail) account, so you can connect to your emails from your desktop email program or your mobile mail app.
Gmail.com supports IMAP / SMTP
That means you don't have to use Gmail.com webmail interface! You can check your emails using an other email program (like Mailbird, Microsoft Outlook or Mozilla Thunderbird). Using desktop email programs will make you more productive and your email will always be available even offline.
