Use Gmail with any IMAP client, including the iPhone
Authored by: fizik on Oct 09, '07 12:09:02PM

Technically, Gmail is not a true POP server: once you read your email with a POP reader, you can't re-read it with another reader/another computer. Also, I am ambivalent about the fact that Gmail has a lot of people hooked on its service (myself included) - I am still steaming over what happened to Yahoo mail and Apple's own .Mac. There is no such thing as a free lunch...

Here's another hint for you:

"recent:username@gmail.com"

used in the username field for a gMail pop client will force the last 30 days to be presented to the pop client. Typically the pop client will then decide if it needs to download anything new. I just gave this hint to a friend to use on his blackberry.
