IMAP coming to GMail

Writing about web page https://mail.google.com/support/bin/topic.py?topic=12806

Gmail is great, except that you have to either use the web client or pop your messages off it and into an email client. If only it supported IMAP, then you’d be able to use a nice client such as Thunderbird but still keep all your messages on the GMail server so you don’t have to worry about keeping your messages in sync when you move from one computer to another.

And it looks as though the wait is finally over: some users are supporting that IMAP support is appearing in their account settings screen, and the Google docs centre has a bunch of pages about IMAP support. Combine this with the recent bump in space (the allocation for my account has gone from 2.8GB to 4.4GB over the last few weeks), the excellent support for access from mobile devices, and there’s not much more I can think of to want from an email service.
