More on emails… migrating from hotmail to gmail

Migrating from hotmail to gmail. I’ve written before about how I like to keep everything in the one place – contacts, IM people, and email. Up until now I have been using various ways of checking my various email accounts – outlook, windows live mail desktop and thunderbird to name but a few. The problem with that Is that you end up being tied to one machine to check all your email. you have to open the mail client to get all the mail from all your accounts, or you have to spend half an hour logging into all the different accounts to check one message on each.
not any more.
I have a hotmail account, which I use for my IM and also for sending out mail to my friends, I have a gmail account for personal use, one for spam things that need an email address to register and one for my band, I also have a couple of yahoo mail acocunts.
you can get all the mail in your gmail inbox. all of it.
the easiest way is to simply forward all your email to the gmail address. so I picked an account to be the ‘master’ logged into the other accounts and setup forwarding. great, now all the email gets sent to one account, apart from the hotmail. for the hotmail you have to setup pop access (which is free)
