The Gmail offers a very useful option for those who have email accounts on Hotmail, Yahoo , AOL or any other email service accounts or POP3 . This feature allows you to import all messages from your account, attached files and still your contact list. Microsoft'swebmail service now has a new name, Outlook .com, but the old Hotmail continues to run smoothly until second orders from the company.
Once you've enabled this feature, you'll be able to receive emails from your imported account directly from your Gmail inbox for 30 days. After this period of one month, this service will be unavailable because the intention of the company is the migration to its platform.
