IMAP and Gmail?

Well it’s comming – IMAP support for GMail users – comming to an inbox near you in the next few days.

How do I know I can activate this?
Login to your Gmail account and click on Settings (top right). Looks for the “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” option. If you see this you can enable IMAP for your account, otherwise check back in a day or two.

Why do I want IMAP?
Imap gives you a real time look into your folders on the Gmail system and allows you to maintain a syncronized account across multiple access points (for example; Iphone, Blackberry, Thunderbird, Outlook, and webmail).
