Guide Review - Mail Forward for Windows 5.3 - Webmail to POP Tool
Mail Forward for Windows is a simple, but very useful tool that lets you collect various email accounts at one address. Mail Forward retrieves messages from multiple Windows Live Hotmail classic, Yahoo! Mail, MSN, AOL, IMAP or POP accounts and forwards them to any other email address.
So you can get all your mail in one place (and one email program) and read it comfortably. You can have Mail Forward run in the background and it will process mail periodically and quietly.
Unfortunately, Mail Forward can't act as a POP proxy or IMAP server, though, and doesn't support downloading mail from arbitrary IMAP folders (other than the Inbox) accounts either.
