Single point of failure? How so? You've been around long enough to understand how pop works Carlos. There is no "point of failure" introduced by popping one account with another.
Yes, there is. If I use gmail to pop the email from, say, yahoo, the email is no longer at yahoo (thats pop3, email is deleted from the server). If gmail fails, I loose the email from both servers, gmail and yahoo. That's a single point of failure.
I prefer to have two or more different providers: if one fails, I'm still connected via the other.
