How can I set Gmail to check my pop accounts more frequently?

Asked by alabare (282points) August 10th, 2007

I may be blind, but I'll be darned if I can find a setting that lets me tell gmail to check my pop accounts more often. Any thoughts?

I've looked for this parameter / setting too but have never found it.

The only thing I've ever found is the "Check Mail Now" link in the Gmail Settings --> Accounts page (in the "Get mail from other accounts" section). Unfortunately, you still have to manually click those links each time.

Why don't you configure your Gmail account into a mail app and rely on that? Much better than constantly trying to manaing you mail entirely through a browser.

@Spargett -- I can't speak for alabare, but in my case -- I work on three different machines in the course of any given day, and I find it more convenient to have everything on the web and accessible from any machine.

Try this. Should be useful for Windows AND Mac users. (Mac will have to link to Lifehacker)
