GMail introduces POP3

From the Gmail: Help Center:


"POP, or Post Office Protocol, lets you download messages from Gmail's servers onto your computer so you can access your mail with a program like Microsoft Outlook Express or Netscape Mail, even when you aren't connected to the Internet.

*Over the next several weeks, we are introducing POP access to all of our users. ..."


This means that people with gmail accounts will be able to access their gmail without seeing the adds, though also without conversation view and labels. This also allows people to download their mail onto their home computer for backup or offline access.
