Select Mail Content radio button.
In the POP3 server field, enter pop.gmail.com or whichever email server you want to use.
In the Port field, enter 995.

NOTE: In the dialog box above, the following message is displayed - All successfully retrieved mail messages will be deleted from the POP3 server. Refer to the documentation of your mail server since this is subject to configuration. For example, Gmail allows you to leave a copy of the retrieved messages in your inbox, so that you do not lose any of your emails. For more information, see Gmail POP3 configuration settings.
