    Hey guys,
    I need to access my gmails accounts with email client like Thunderbird or anything similar, so i was thinking would it be safe to access it through IMAP without proxies? Or maybe you can recommend any software that can use proxies while accessing mails?
    Thanks.

    Is not a very good idea to manage so many accounts via a client with IMAP... One I tested outlook with 10 emails via IMAP and I was getting many errors. You should look at pop3 protocol.

    About your question you should make some tests to see if G mail will block you if you use your current IP without proxy because I don't see any problem with that.

    But to get you a better answer we need to know what you want to do with all those gmail accounts.

    What ija61 said. POP3 would be better. I'm not sure about Gmail's policy, but i have a bulk checker for Outlook/Hotmail and i can access tens of thousands of accs with a single ip without any issue.

    Depending on what your end game is, you can even record a macro with iMacros, which has proxy support and can clear cookies between 2 sessions.

    Outlook is a load of crap. Every single encounter I've had with it, I've gotten a bunch of errors.

    Not sure about which is better when it comes to imap and pop3, but I'd stay stick with thunderbird whatever you do OP.

    Hey HoNeYBIRD, a bulk checker for checking 10k and more outlook/hotmail accs within one ip sounds great. so they obviously have a cool policy with that... how long do you need to check one acc? actually i need a lot of outlook/hotmail accs but still have only a simple casperjs bot who generate accs for testing and make alive tests. but its really slow, i need about 30-45 secs to generate one acc. The alive test stand alone is fast 1-2 secs but actually i change the ip every time and for that i need about 10-20 secs... thats defenetly too slow for 10k or more accs. The second prob i've is, that the created accs just work a few days before they have to be pva... so do you have some more expirience about their policy?

    @DavisRand: What about forwarding the accs to just one acc. And this one you can manage in thunderbird.

    I need them only for receiving mails, not spamming.
    Good idea, but wouldn't it be suspicious for gmail that almost 200 accounts forward to 1 ?

    I don't create accs, so i can't really speak about that, but the checking itself is very fast. I haven't used the tool lately, but it doesn't take 1 second to check an account for sure. If i can remember well, the speed is few hundred accs per minute.

    A year ago or two there were at least two different tools to create those yourself. I beta tested one, i think it was either the Hotmail Account Stream or the Hotmail Account Creator, that's when i made my accs, but i think none of those tools are working anymore.

    Personally i wouldn't recommend Hotmail/Outlook, those accs die like flies.
    Depending on what your end game is and how many you need, you can create the accs yourself by hand or semi-automatically.
    I have a few hundred AOL accs, which i made manually, manually as in not using any mass account creator, i just recorded a macro with iMacros. I had private proxies and i made one account per ip every day until i had enough accs, a few hundred, that's what i'm using now for different purposes, i don't really need more and these accs last, not a single one was disabled and they aren't even PVAs.

    So you can try something along these lines or if it's too slow for you, then find a provider and buy PVAs, there are plenty on the Marketplace. Mass created non-PVA accs won't last, it's pretty much money out of the window.

    It sounds a bit risky checking so many accounts from the same IP, but I might be overprecautions as well. Forwarding doesn't sound much riskier, but so much more convenient, but who knows what Google are doing actually.

    setup a vacation forward instead assuming they have it or a copy to. you could have it send to different addresses that all forward to a master one to avoid tracks as an example.

    Maybe it's not possible anymore, i created those AOL accs ~2 years ago, phone verification wasn't a must back then and i still haven't verified those accs, yet they work, i guess because they're aged and have natural account usage.
    It's not that easy as it was, it's for sure, not just with AOL, but with any other provider.
    Maybe try some lesser known providers or if you have providers in your home country (if it's not the US), most of the time those are easier to game than the big providers like Gmail, Yahoo, Outlook etc.
