I was using Gmail for all my email and decided I wanted to use Mail to handle all my emails instead. I loved being able to use Gmail to access all my email and being able to login anywhere with an internet connection, which brings me to my question.

Is there any way to access the email on my Mac Pro from any internet connected computer?

P.S.
I know I shouldn't have moved from Gmail and I wish I wouldn't have, but I downloaded about 90% of my emails and now I don't know how to get them back on Gmail, so if anyone can point me in the right direction for that, I'd rather move back to Gmail, but if not then I'd like to be able to access my Mac Pro email from anywhere with an internet connection.

Regards,
Mike Bowden

Hi mikeb2204,

You need to set your email account up as an IMAP account, then you can access your emails from any computer with an internet connection as the emails are stored on your ISPs server, not locally on your Mac - like a POP3 account.

Well I have 5 email address that I keep track of and I don't want to have to login to 5 different accounts. I want them all in one place and be able to access it from one location, including all my old emails also.

mikeb2204 -- There is no practical way to do what you're suggesting with Mail. You'd have to turn your Mac into a server and make it accessible via the internet 24/7. Even then, I don't think Mail is set up to run as a server application.
