    this could be a random coincidence, but on one of my gmail's it was accidentally set as language (english UK) when I switched it to (english US) my IMAP instantly became enabled, didn't work on my older gmail account though.

    HELP!!

    I was following the instructions on gmail.com but I am having problems sending messages. I could receive all of my emails but it wouldn't let me send at all. I have selected both incoming and outgoing using SSL with password authentication. However, whenever I typed my password on the smtp password field, it keeps changing it back to"Optional" after I left that page. Please Help!

    Keep saying i need to change the smtp setting. I am using the iphone on my wifi network.

    I had to email gmail support from my school email address to get imap enabled fully. Oddly, GMail's web interface was declaring IMAP enabled on my account but the iPhone disagreed. I emailed GMail and although they sent me a boilerplate response about their online knowledgebases, my phone suddenly alerted me to waiting mail on my IMAP GMail account setup that had previously not been working. That leads me to believe my account was bugged in some way (reporting enabled but not listening on imap ports or something) and google staff had to fix it before my phone could connect.

    Weird...

    Now that IMAP GMail is working on my iPhone? Sweet... works like a dream now, this kind of slickness really improves my opinion of MobileMail.app

    Now for some real Exchange support, that would be awesome...
    (Hopefully my friend Mr. Gates can come to an agreement with Mr. Jobs about that soon. Fix exchange imap handling or write a translation tool for mail.app and mobilemail.app...

    ...and while I'm dreaming I'd like a pony...

    IMAP really affected my battery life, so I went back to POP and everything is back to normal now. Oh well, IMAP is cool but not worth the shorter battery life.

    If you don't have IMAP yet, change language from US to UK, or UK to US

    I would assume because it transmits and receives, either via EDGE or WiFi, everytime an email is sent/deleted/received, etc.

    PERFECT!! Love this as now my emails are in sync with eachother. Wish I found this thread earlier ugh. Now all I have to figure out or wait on is a fix so that my upgraded 1.1.2 won't crash all the time.
