    Gmail with Mail: way to reconfigure?
    Hi. I have my G4 desktop at my apartment, with all my other gear, but have a laptop i use when I am back home at my mom's. Like today. I can access my Gmail from either, but i much prefer to use Mail. I can download my Gmail to MacMail on the laptop, but the problem with that is, when I go back to my apartment it won't download, as it's already download to the laptop.

    Is there a way to set up Gmail so that with a macbook or with my desktop I can download existing Gmail, but not have it "leave" Gmail? In other words, message XYXY sits at Google's servers, and I download a copy of it from either computer.

    Can you help me do this? Thanks so much for any help.

    Configure mail to use imap, not pop.

    You must enable gmail for imap first.
