|Webmail POP clients

Which webmail providers let (free) users suck down mail from other POP servers?|
To be clear, which function as POP clients, not servers?
And how many accounts? 1? >1?

Hm, you might be answering a different question.
Let me try again:
Of Hotmail, Yahoo, GMail, which let you suck external mail (using POP3) from another party, INTO your hotmail/yahoo/gmail account?
I've not used Hotmail since I got a clue,
Yahoo will, and probably from multiple accounts.
Yahoo does (see Options page [link in upper right-hand corner], under "Mail Addresses"), though I've never used that feature.
yahoo allows it. Cannot send though.
you can send as the account with a paid account.
Yahoo (the free UK flavour at least) will do what you require.
The settings are under Mail Options > Mail Addresses. No idea how many accounts it'll let you have at any one time.
Hotmail doesn't seem to have it, in the free UK version at least. And I don't use GMail, so can't help you there.
OH. I don't know about that. I can't think of any web-based clients like that which offer that service.
Gmail sorta does in a beta incarnation for a single domain though, through their actual domain name hosting through Gmail. That's all over the news for other reasons in the past couple days anyway, though:https://www.google.com/a/
Gmail doesn't but I do know it's one of the more common enhancement requests they get and was being considered. whether it is stil being considered, is queued for implmentation or has been rejected I don't know. Personally I think it's such an obvious good fit that they'd be insane not to implement it.
Mollymail sucks POP3 mail into a web client. Once it showed me someone else's personal email, detailing how they left their spouse.
hotmail does 3 at least. or at least they used to because I used to have it configured to.
