Google is rolling out IMAP support to Google Mail accounts.

[Thanks, Malte]


And also GooSync supports Contacts now.

Seems that IMAP support is not rolled out for all users. Can't activate it. There are no options for that. Hope it's comming soon for me!

wieso hast du das und ich nicht :-(

(ich möchte es eigentlich nicht wirklich wissen wollen, die wahrheit könnte mich wieder zu hart treffen ;-)

Ich hab's auch nicht nicht. Aber Malte.

Gr8, it works for me! Thanks for the tip VW! Now I can ditch using that awful POP3!

No IMAP here so far.
I tried to switch over from Italian to English US (just in case) but that didn't work either.
Volker, did you get a notification or did it just happen?

BTW, since a few days the mailbox size has increased from 2 to well over 4 Gigs, is that just me?

Sie nutzen derzeit 139 MB (3%) von Ihren 4340 MB.

I got 4GB too. :o)

But is it a proper IMAP implementation? Full IMAP IDLE support? I'm guessing the answer is "yes," but I know that lack is a major stumbling point for people who might otherwise consider using Domino's IMAP implementation.

I also have been upgraded to 4GB but not to IMAP... :-/

Like others, initially, I didn't see the IMAP option but after I changed my language option to English (US) it appeared.

Kieren Johnson, 2007-10-25

Hmm, I don't have this option yet though always working with "English (US)" :-(

My account have been upgraded to 4Gb and the IMAP option is available

Elton Grottoli, 2007-10-25

IMAP is still not here for me, switching UI languages did not help (not that I expected it to). Nevertheless I can proudly say that I am currently using 0% of my 4 GB of storage. ;-)

Martin Böhm, 2007-10-26

IMAP is finally here (not that I have an urgent need) when I change display language to English (US), but goes away when changing back to German language. Let's see how long it takes if IMAP is generally available.

Armin Auth, 2007-10-26

Well OK, some of my friends which created their account just some weeks ago actually do have this option avaible while I'm still waiting for it in my account :-(

Mathias Ziolo, 2007-10-27

I've been upgraded to 14GB but I still have no IMAP function online :(
