Gmail had just launched IMAP access to Gmail. Its just another cool feature and worked on may OS platforms and email clients like Thunderbird to Outlook to Apple Mail and even on iPhone. Sync your inbox across devices instantly and automatically. Whether you read or write your email on your phone or on your desktop, changes you make to Gmail will be seen from anywhere you access your inbox.
You can retrieve your Gmail messages with a client or device that supports IMAP. To enable IMAP in your Gmail account:
- Log in to your Gmail account.
- Click Settings at the top of any Gmail page.
- Click Forwarding and POP/IMAP.
- Select Enable IMAP.
- Configure your IMAP client and click Save Changes.
I think this is a really nice feature and I’m going to try it myself and if there are any concerns or errors in my post, just let me know, as I’m writing this in a little rush, before going into a presentation at office. 🙂
