Gmail may be versatile, fast, powerful, and easy to use, but you just can't send emails as full of color and animation as easily as you can with IncrediMail and its "letters."

You might already send rich-text messages with your Gmail address in the From line using IncrediMail. Here's how to access the replies you get in Gmail using IncrediMail, too:

  1. Make sure POP access is enabled for your Gmail account.
  2. Select Tools > Email Accounts from the menu in IncrediMail.
  3. Click Add.
  4. Click Gmail.
  5. Enter your Gmail address under Username.
  6. Type your Gmail password under Password.
  7. Click Next.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Close.

IncrediMail sets the appropriate server names, ports, and authentication methods automatically.
