    I currently have about 5 or 6 different IMAP accounts feeding into my mail program, they work great except I have to click on each different account's inbox to see my messages from that account. Are there any mail programs that show all messages in one folder (like a global inbox) or anything like that?

    It's not a BIG deal but it would be nice to be able to review 1 mailbox at once rather than six separate ones.

    Thanks,
    Dan

    Do you have your Gmail account set up to access them?

    Gmail has the "All Mail" label that should let you see all of the new mails.

    Right?

    Yup. I'm actually accessing 3 separate Gmail's as well as a few other IMAP accounts. I'm basically looking to see 1 inbox as I'd see if I had several POP accounts. I don't care if they're physically in other inboxes, I'd just like to be able to see senders and subjects from all mailboxes in one place.

    I was trying to do the reverse. I set up several free imap accounts, and then was surprised when I realized Gmail only loads up external pop3 accounts and not imap accounts. I take back my last comment about using Gmail. Let me keep researching from there.
