I'm doing it the other way around, I've tried to connect my business mail to my personal Gmail account, so basically I'm using Gmail as a mail client.
So I get business mail in my personal mail account and from my personal mail account I can send mails with my business account.
Unfortunately, I only managed to do this using POP3.
I want to keep my personal account Gmail.
So now my (personal) Gmail account has all my incoming and outgoing business emails in it, neatly categorized in folders, while my business mail server has only incoming mails sitting unread in the inbox.
And now I tried (and mostly succeeded) to get all those outgoing business mails out of my Gmail account and onto my mail server and getting the incoming mails organized like in Gmail.
And I'm now using Outlook and IMAP so my personal Gmail and business mail are separated.
So I get business mail in my personal mail account...
I played with doing something like that over 10 years ago. Then decided I didn't want Google having access to my entire life. But I was impressed that they came up with ways to fetch your personal email from your ISP/host, and route it through their servers relatively painlessly.

...only ever use IMAP!
Very true. I remember figuring it out when I wanted to view everything on my phone or desktop. Had to copy a bunch of previous POP emails back into the IMAP server, but once everything was working it was hella better than POP.

This is the definite proof that the government is out to get us and corona is just the beginning!
On a serious note, why do people keep questioning officials and scientists, but are quick to hop on the bandwagon when some random fool makes a claim?
And on that note, I hereby claim that every programming language except C# causes cooties*
Because officials and scientists are sometimes wrong and sometimes can't even be trusted?

People are basically saying that they don't believe or trust people who research subjects for a living, but they're perfectly fine with someone who read something on the internet.
My favorite (and very non-Lounge safe) example:
90+% of researchers: "Research has indicated that the earth will be 3 degrees warmer on average in 30 years which will have huge consequences to how we live."
People / POTUS: "It's -3C today so that indicates researchers are obviously lying."
"Officials" often have an axe to grind because the government, run by politicians, pays them. And politicians have more axes to grind than any other group.
Scientists are usually paid by politicians or corporations, so neither are they immune to knowing where their paycheck comes from. It's far worse with economists.
I look on most predictions with amusement and/or skepticism. There's no end of them, and I love Taleb's observation that Semitic languages have no distinct word for forecasting, and just use prophesying. When I was in high school, two forecasts were that an ice age was heading our way and that, over the next 30 years, billions of people would starve to death. These prophecies were made by scientists.
