  1. like we often do with our yahoo, hotmail etc accounts where we import them via POP/IMAP and manage them with our gmail account; can we do the same for facebook?

    i tried using the "Check mail using POP3" but it didn't work; i guessing cos of the mild facebook/gmail faceoff.

    anyone willing to share any tips?
