    I have my Gmail set under POP, and I use Apple's Mail program.

    Is it possible for two computers both to access my POP Gmail in real-time? I figure that since it is POP, the email only appears on whichever computer accessed it first.

    Yes, in the setup you need to enable the messages to be stored on the server.

    Then, once the first account is all set up with your messages, access the second computer. Go to gmail.com and download ALL messages. Now, your accounts have the same messages.

    Then it should work from there.

    I love Gmail!

    Do I select Keep Gmail in Inbox or Archive Gmail's copy? Right now I have it as Keep Gmail in Inbox, but can only access all my emails with one computer.
