Mail.app on OS X 10.5 does not work well with Gmail via IMAP.
Authored by: brendiana on Jan 29, '08 08:15:22PM

Since December I have been using the Gmail / IMAP configuration to keep mail in sync. Overall this does not work very well and I have experienced a variety of problems. I am now reverting to the reliable POP configuration.

1) Mail.app does not sync To Do's well. a) Multiple entries appear in Gmail. b) Mail.app often hangs / crashes when creating a To Do
2) Mail.app does not sync mail contents properly. On occasions it does not sync attachments, but instead garbled ansi texts.
3) Mail.app syncs multiple copies of the same mail.
