First of all, you probably don’t need to. Google provides an incredibly massive amount of space; over 7Gb at the last count. That’s a lot of emails!

However, be that as it may, some people still prefer to have email on their computer only, and not on Google. Here’s how to do it..

1. Log into gmail, and click the Gears icon in the top right-hand corner.

2. On the settings page, select ‘Forwarding and POP/IMAP, and make your choice from the dropdown list next to ‘when messages are accessed with POP’

3. Click ‘Save Changes’


That’s it – done.
