Now, you can access your office and/or college e-mails with a single click without waiting for Gmail to automatically update them. This way, one can save time over the e-mail check that Gmail does at specific time intervals.
Gmail has launched a new option in Google Labs through which users can access their POP3 (Post Office Protocol) account mails in Gmail at their convenience. You can access your office or school account e-mails on Gmail using this guide. You can enable this new feature by clicking on "Refresh POP Accounts" option under Gmail Labs (Settings>Labs options). Once the Refresh POP Accounts is enabled, simply click on the Refresh link on the top of your Gmail Inbox and you are good to go.
