How would you go about doing that, I just used the add email button, put in my email and password and then pressed next and it automatically stacked all the mails in my gmail account.

what is the difference between pop3 and IMAP? Usually with thunderbird I use IMAP since I heard it was dynamic in the sense that it also updated my gmail account when I went online at gmail.com to access my emails.

Ah...no...I went with the default IMAP config that WLM 2011 uses for Gmail. Downloading and synching all the mails was of course time-consumingly painful, but now whenever I work offline in WLM, I can read and work with my mails. I thought that would be a better option for me. Seems to be working out well. Sorry, I should have clarified this earlier. Thanks.

So, to the OP...there is one other consideration you have to keep in mind. If you use the POP3 option, you can pull off all your mails from the server (be it that of Gmail or that of Windows Live etc.). In the IMAP option, this is apparently also possible (unless I have misread the material on this), but the default action in IMAP is to download a copy of your mails from the server to your computer to allow for local and offline reading and working, but it also maintains the same mails on the server and both are synched when you get online. Under these conditions, yes, a copy of your mails will reside on the mail servers of Gmail or Windows Live etc.

If you want to use your email client and do not want to keep mails on the server, then I would think that the POP3 option would be best.

I don't mind if for my gmail account, the emails remain on the gmail server, but what I am worried about is if my emails in my gmail account, when I'm working win WLM 2011, that it might also get stored on an MS server.

I am pretty sure that won't happen. You see, to do that you will have to link your Gmail and Hotmail accounts, which can be done through their respective web-interfaces. If you don't set up the relationship, that connection cant happen.

As I have understood it, in WLM (the desktop client) there is a Sign-In assistant which sets up your desktop client to receive/ send from Hotmail. Other Live services are also linked to your WLM client. But this is an opt in feature and does not happen by default (at least in my most recent experience). And, anyways, I don't think you can link those accounts from inside the WLM client unless you back up your emails from your Gmail account to your Live Mail (Hotmail) account.

I just hope I have not made matters worse for you!
