Gmail adds IMAP support

I'm pumped that Gmail finally added IMAP support. I've been waiting for this feature ever since I started using Gmail. Thanks Google! Now I can reply to starred e-mail on a plane and use tools like Apple's Mail to compose/read my e-mail. When I hooked it up yesterday, it took 6 hours to download the 23000+ messages I have stored on Gmail. I don't know if Mail will handle the volume very well, but with Leopard arriving tomorrow, hopefully Mail will be improved.

It should be a fun weekend installing Leopard. With two MacBook Pros (one from LinkedIn), I can test on one before I upgrade both. Of course, the best part of the weekend won't be technology - there's an Alumni softball game for my fraternity, a Halloween Party and several Rockies games to watch. You all know that weekends where you don't get on your computer are the best, right?! ;-)

I'm at the Ajaxian conference and heard from the Google guys that Gears support for offline gmail is already in the works. But until that gets rolled out...

IMAP doesn't show up in your settinsg because Google are rolling out the service under a couple of days. Have another look in a week (or ever day if you're in a hurry :) and you'll see it.
