    Now you can use your favorite email tool to check your gmail account. They're still working on it so not every account has it yet.

    POP3 does have a leave mail on server option, but you'll have to download all the mail every time you check. I had the same question myself... hopefully they will add IMAP functionality soon.

    There is also an application to use Gmail as an external remote drive. You can even add files, move files, and look at files through windows explorer. Gmail drive

    This is where you can download it I think it is near the bottom.

    There's a rumor that POP3 gmail may have relevant text inserted at the bottom the way Yahoo and Hotmail add text down there.

    Plus it's still beta, they may just be testing out a pay POP3 service
