Gmail Adds IMAP

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

As everyone knows (or perhaps not), IMAP is the best way to access your email from multiple devices (home, work, mobile, etc.) because the information is always synchronized. Any changes you make take place on the server, not on your device. From the web site:
As we roll out the feature over the next couple of days, you will be able to use Gmail at work, in your car, or just about anywhere on any device, and actions you take will be automatically synced with Gmail on the web (and remember it works the other way too: anything you do on the Web will be seen on your phone or in your mail client). Just click the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab in your Gmail "Settings" and turn it on. (Psst. If you don't see the "IMAP" in the "Forwarding and POP/IMAP" tab, then check back soon. We are giving it to users as fast as we can).
