Hello,

I want to send the email from my isp inbox to my aim webmail. Here's why:

1. aim has IMAP access, which is great for my slow dialup connection.
2. I would like to be able to check just one inbox to check all my mail

Is there a free service which will download email from an account and forward it to a different account? Is this another technilogical need that the masses of internet startups have ignored and I can capitalize on?

Oh, and another thing...

If you are using Outlook for your POP account, you can configure Outlook to operate "properly" with dial-up access. For example, download only the headers, not the complete message; or not download large messages unless told to; or start up in offline mode and only access the mail server when you tell it to. If you're not using Outlook as your mail client, whatever you are using may have similar setups.
