Reply To: Gmail & IMAP
It might be because we had the same account setup in multiple computers, but some messages would download to one client but not another. Other times it was what the caller was saying; there were messages in webmail that hadn’t downloaded at all. I remember finding a setting on the website that seemed to help, but didn’t eliminate the issue. Why are there so many settings? I believe it’s because GMail’s IMAP is either non-standard or requires extra configuration whereas every other mail provider has just worked. Maybe I’ve just had a bad experience but I don’t trust that it’s showing me all my messages without double checking by logging into the website.
