    So, partially because I want to start turning my computer off during the day, I'm going to stop using POP3 and use gmail.com full-time. Up until about a week ago, I had about 6-different e-mail addresses, which is also why Outlook made sense for centralized e-mail location. I did some googling, found Gexodus, which seems neat and I'm in the middle of transferring my e-mail to Thunderbird so I can create an "mbox" file.

    I'll update progress as it happens, anyone done this succesfully so far? Seems pretty straight-forward...

    Nothing really wrong with using outlook, I love it. My only thought it since I don't need to have a bunch of e-mails dump into one place, why not have gmail back my files up for me?
