     1=== Basic usage ===

     3You can use pop in 2 ways:
     4* "fetchmail" function moves all (new) mail from server to local store.
     5* URL-syntax treats remote folder as local folder with all according control (selective delete / move, not all at once).

     21=== Using mutt with Gmail's POP service ===
     22
     23Currently, running mutt with Gmail's POP service doesn't work well when mutt is only used to browse remote mail: users will not always see all the messages in a folder.
     24
     25To fix this, you must login to Gmail from the web interface and go 'Settings' -> 'Forwarding and POP' -> 'POP Downloads'
     26and select "Enable POP for all mail (even mail that's already been downloaded)".
     27
     28You might also want to change the "When messages are accessed with POP" option according to your needs.
     29
     30=== Tuning ===
     31
     32When working with POP folders, mutt can cache headers as well as whole messages to reduce the download time greatly, see /Caching for details.
