Google Rolls Out Mail Fetcher for Gmail

Google is launching a feature called Mail Fetcher that lets you check your other email accounts from Gmail. But that's not all. Google explains:
You can retrieve your mail (new and old) from up to five other email accounts and have them all in Gmail. Then you can even create a customized 'From:' address, which lets you send messages from Gmail, but have them look like they were sent from another one of your email accounts. Please note that you can only retrieve mail from accounts that have POP3 access enabled.
To check if Mail Fetcher has been enabled for your account, see if you can find Get mail from other accounts under your Settings->Accounts tab. Set up instructions are located here.

Mail Fetcher looks like a killer feature for Gmail. User won't ever have to leave the confines of the Google domain to check their other email accounts, and I imagine the effect will be immediately felt by other webmail providers.

[...] Considering what Gmail is and what Gmail may be, and considering that now you can both send to and receive from a non-Gmail account, in my opinion there is no one else (looking at Yahoo! Mail and MSN Hotmail) that can reach Gmail in terms of usability and flexibility, and of webspace availability for free. [...]

But then, for yahoo user, we cannot add our mail into gmail as it the POP is only allow for YahooPlus
