    I have always used Hotmail with Outlook Express - I can send and receive Hotmail emails from my PC. But now that Microsoft have threatened to withdraw free POP access, I have decided to try GMail.
    I have got my GMail working with Outlook Express. I can download all my received emails into a folder on my PC, but I do not appear to be able to download my sent emails.

    Is there a way to do this?

    Thanks in advance for any information you can give.

    Just a thought, send from Outlook Express, just have you Gmail account in the header.

    I use Gmail for everything, but no longer have to log into their site - everything comes and goes from the Gmail account.

    Thanks very much! For some reason I was testing GMail by logging in to the web site and sending from there. Of course, normally I would send from my PC and specify GMail in the "From:" address, which is what I do with Hotmail. So I tried what you said, and the sent mail appears in my local folder's "Sent Mail" folder.

    Thanks!
