Consolidate all your e-mail to one account!

Consolidate all your e-mail to one account! Many of us have many email accounts for personal and works. To read all these e-mails become a pain in the neck. For me, I have consolidate all of them into one gmail account for many years now. I have never really needed to switch to read personal or work emails and it's a one step approach to clear all my mails. One of my colleagues just discovered that I have done so and he has followed my approach. So far he is loving it. I thought I might share it with you and it will make my day a happy one.

I use gmail but I think you can also apply the concept in Hotmail or other similar web mail of your choice. Here are the main steps:

1) Authorize your master gmail account (let's call it Master) to "Send As" your other email.

2) [a] Setup the master gmail to receive other emial through the pop3 access or [b] Simply set up an auto/all email transfer in the other email account to your  master account.

Make sure that your mails are DELETED after download or forwarded in your other accounts if you don't want to blow up the storage and stop receiving mail suddenly; and you probably don't know why by then since you have forgotten about it.

3) Wa la...that's it. You will receive all your e-mail in one gmail account!

There are more tricks we can do to further enhance the management of this approach. I'll cover them in later post.

Have a good day!
