    I'm not sure if this is the right palce to post, if not MODS please move how you see fit.
    Doing some research today I cam across a petition for gmail to put in place IMAP along with their POP access. I thought maybe a few of you would agree that this would be a stellar thing. If you agree follow the link and sign the petition.

    I forward my gmail accounts to fastmail' which is Imap with IDLE command supported. Works great for now... though I guess it would be cool if Gmail did IMAP on it's own.

    I also forward my GMail to my free Fastmail account. The thing is, if my Treo got *every* message, I'd be removing SPAM and sifting through junk every second of my life. With the GMail forward to Fastmail IMAP, I can use Google filters to apply to my mail and only forward things that I want to see on my Treo.

    Yeah, me too on the gmail --> fastmail thing. Another good thing is that I don't have to remember whether I gave out my Fastmail or my gmail account (or my work email or my Yahoo address or my other Yahoo address..) The point of control is Gmail. And especially 'Yeah' on the spam thing.

    Any new news on this? With all the features Google is adding (mini apps, (widgets?), it seems like Gmail IMAP is being left in the dust or at least on the backburner. How hard can this be to implement?

    you're missing the point. Why does Google offer GMail for free? Because it gets revenue from advertising on the gmail web page. If you have IMAP access, you don't ever see the ads, now do you? And if you don't see the ads, Google doesn't get their money, and they have to shut down gmail. Or start charging for it.

    I know what you're saying, but then why do they offer POP?

    I use POP3 and never see the google gmail home page so am not seeing the advertising. I just use pop3 to get my email.

    Because not having POP access would be so annoying to techies that we'd just go somewhere else.

    that's why i use gmail and not paying for upgraded yahoo, but it sure would be nice to have an IMAP route. But hey I just want my cake and eat it to.

    I recall reading somewhere a loooong arse time ago that Google was considering IMAP for gmail, but I dunno what happenned to that. It was mentioned in the google support/hlpe forums I recall....

    IMO, I wish it was possible to sync your Treo calendar with google calendar wirelessly. That would be a great way to sharing your calendar with other people wirelessly...

    pop3: Mail is downloaded to your computer. If you have multiple computers that you want to all access the same mail..forget it.

    imap: Mail stays on the mailserver. Multiple computers can see/read/etc the same emails cuz it's all in one place. Also, with the right kind of imap server, you can have some email programs for the treo do immediate 'push' notifications for when you get new email in.

    Ummm with POP3 You can also choose to leave the email on the server, so any computer can have access to it. Thats the way i have my POP3 email accounts set up. My messages are available on my laptop, homecomputer, and treo.

    There is a sticky in the communications forum that explains the difference between POP and IMAP but after the first few posts it get silly and isn't worth your time.

    The point is, imap is centrally located email - and not having to deal with multiple copies which may or may not have all the same content.
