Gmail: Google Adds IMAP to Gmail, World Rejoices

 

If you are a Gmail user, head over to your account settings and select "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" to enable the newly added IMAP access option. If you don’t know what the Internet Message Access Protocol is, this system allows you to access mail directly on the Google servers instead of downloading it to your computer. That way, if you access mail from multiple devices, your inbox and mail folders will look the same from every one of them. Gmail’s IMAP setup page includes tutorials for Outlook, Apple Mail, Windows Mail, Thunderbird, and, you guessed it, the iPhone. [Thanks John and everyone who sent this]
