I'm way behind in my feed reader (Google Reader, if you care to know) and it shows. This morning I was poking around in my Gmail settings and noticed a slight change in the tabs across the top. Where we used to have "Forwarding and POP", we now have "Forwarding and POP/IMAP". In case you missed it, let me point out the important piece of information again:
Super sleuth though I am, it still doesn't seem possible that I'm the first person to have noticed this new and exciting information. Looking through my feeds, I see that this changed started rolling out near the end of October.
- Gmail Supports IMAP - Google Operating System
- Sync your inbox across devices with free IMAP - Official Gmail Blog
I've advocated using Gmail in most settings for quite a while, but this addition, in conjunction with Google Apps, makes it a truly viable option for businesses.
If you're using Gmail via IMAP, leave a comment and let us know how it's going.
