Don't think you can do it with POP, which is an 'on request' service.
What about setting up forwarding messages from other accounts?

Thank you janusz. for your response. I appreciate your help.
Seems simple to just set another acct to forward mail where ever is desired.

You can retrieve messages in Gmail from other accounts using POP3, but as janusz said POP3 is an “on demand” service so you won’t get the messages immediately. When you set this up in your Gmail settings a default POP3 import interval of about an hour is used, and Gmail will then automatically change the import interval depending on how many messages are found during each import.

If you use forwarding the messages should arrive nearly immediately (within a minute or so). However, forwarding breaks SPF and some other email reputation checks, so you may get worse spam filtering (or false positives) when you use message forwarding.

I have found that forwarding email from Gmail to other services generally works very reliably. I have routinely been doing this for years and have had very few problems, and the mail arrives very quickly.
