You sure? The only things it seems like I can edit that easily is the 'incoming mail server' from pop.gmail to imap.gmail. But that doesn't seem to actually change it from pop to imap...

For syncing your apps, in case you ever lose them or your SD card becomes corrupted, download "AppBrain". It does more than just sync of course, so please do a bit of research on its other features. I like it a lot.

On the e Mail front, I also wanted to add something about Yahoo Mail. You can forward Yahoo mail to your Gmail account without paying for Yahoo Pro. Quite simply, go into your Yahoo Mail account, and change your location to: "Yahoo! China"

Yes, for some reason, we have to pay for forwarding here in the States but Asia gets it for free. Then when that's set, just go into the forward/IMAP settings and select forward to. Now you'll get all your mail there.

No, you have to change it on the Gmail webpage.

Sign into Gmail, go to Settings (upper-right corner), go to "Forwarding and POP/IMAP", then go to IMAP Access and choose "enable IMAP".

Once that's done, you'll need to point your clients to imap.gmail.com instead of pop.gmail.com for the incoming mail server address. And also set it to use IMAP instead of POP for the protocol.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

Hmmm... well I'm using Mac Mail, but something doesn't seem to be lining up!

Gmail settings already were imap enabled. The picture below shows my settings after pop. was changed to imap. Where do I go to change the whole protocol? Doesn't seem like I can...

Looks good to me. What exactly is the problem you're experiencing at this point?

Hi and I hope its OK to bump this thread (rather than starting a new one) as I'm going to get an Android phone (Desire) and there is some useful tips and advice here.

Jonik, did you manage to sort out your issue on gmail? Also do you have any other useful tips or downsides you can share from your own experience? The phone comes with Android 2.2 which im assuming is fine to get going with.
