    Also... If you are running 10.5 (Leopard) Mail will "Auto-Setup" gmail accounts.

    No, it will only auto-setup POP3. I wouldn't be surprised if they change that to IMAP in a later release. However at the time, Google only had POP3.

    Actually, IMAP is now available for Gmail as well. I am using it

    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/a...y?answer=77695


    Then go to your Mac Mail client and follow these instructions


    http://5thirtyone.com/archives/862 and these instructions


    Properly sort Drafts, Deleted, and Sent mail in Apple Mail


    Similar steps must be taken to ensure that any emails sent, saved as drafts, or deleted are properly identified by Gmail’s servers. After completing the IMAP setup steps for Apple Mail, instructing Mail is a few simple clicks away. Once your Gmail IMAP account is added to Mail, you’ll notice your [Gmail account] in the left sidebar.


    1. Highlight ‘[Gmail] Sent Mail’ in the sidebar and select ‘Mailbox’ (menu bar) > ‘Use This Mailbox For’ > ‘Sent’.
    2. Highlight ‘[Gmail] Drafts’ in the sidebar and select ‘Mailbox’ (menu bar) > ‘Use This Mailbox For’ > ‘Drafts’
    3. Highlight ‘[Gmail] Trash’ in the sidebar and select ‘Mailbox’ (menu bar) > ‘Use This Mailbox For’ > ‘Trash’
    4. Highlight ‘[Gmail] Spam’ in the sidebar and select ‘Mailbox’ (menu bar) > ‘Use This Mailbox For’ > ‘Junk’

    oh, I knew that.

    schweb answered my question. I was wondering if Mail would auto-setup GMail IMAP.

    Okay, I am having great luck with this. One more question please: I have a small graphic/logo at the bottom of my sig, and I would like to make this "live" so that when someone clicks on it, it takes them to a specific part of my website. Can you tell me how to do this?


    Thanks!
