I doubt there is one, but if everyone starts to use pop to access their Gmail, how are they supposed to make money out of it ?

Plus many features won't just work with the desktop client (e.g. conversations, labels, search, etc...)

Can't find any exact figures but these offer some possible clues...

Why has my Gmail account been locked?

<< Abnormal usage includes, but is not limited to:
* Receiving, deleting, or POPing out large amounts of mail in a short period of time.
* Sending mail to a large number of recipients in a short period of time.
...
If you're using POP to retrieve your messages from Gmail and your account has been locked, please read I enabled POP access, and now I'm locked out of my Gmail account:

Anyone knows if this applies to "GMail for your Domain"?

no this wont applies to gmail for your domain i think

Do you see ads in gmail for your domain.

Gmail for your domain covers all the features of Gmail beta then why do they need to limit......

There is a limit on incoming emails to a Google Group. I tried to use Outlook to redirect mail messages that had come from a Yahoo group to a Google Group and it stopped accepting them after 100 in an hour. I emailed them and the reply was that they limit incoming messages to 100 but that after an hour the filter is reset.

Perhaps there is some similar time-based filter on gmail.

yeah >David sanger my friend was trying to send more emails to a google group at the time by using gmail configured outlook........

and stefan2904
   >why using extern client? i think the gmail interface is much better then the most client.

Because my friends company network administrator blocks gmail ......and so he configured it in outlook

But now i told him to use https://mail.google.com to access gmail and it works well. that was cool.

Generally websense detects the meta of each site... and it completely ignores https sites..........

stefan2904: External clients are useful when it comes to cryptography & privacy. (see: OpenPGP @ wiki)

At my work they have Gmail blocked as well, but I just use the secure connection, most firewalls (hard or soft) don't block SSL connections:

Sankar, tell your friend to try this: https://gmail.google.com

I'm currently getting weird timeouts in Thunderbird when I send emails. I'll post screenshots if the problem persists.
