I really welcomed the ability to be able to read my Hotmail from Outlook, but you'd expect nothing less given that Hotmail is Microsoft property. But I was really interested to hear today that Google are going around saying that users of its Gmail service will be able to check their e-mail via Microsoft Outlook! Google will start to roll out POP for its users over the coming weeks. Now this is great. What is also pretty spiffing is that they will likely expand the service to include certain handheld devices such as mobile phones.
