Today Google released an IMAP interface to Gmail. Once you enable IMAP via Settings in your Gmail account, you then need to configure your client to access Gmail via the new IMAP interface.
Since I’ve never been able to figure out how to get the Gmail for mobile application to run on my Windows Pocket PC (because I can’t find a J2ME Java client), adding IMAP now gives me the ability to ditch their Gmail for mobile browser interface and instead use the built-in Messaging client on my phone, which is also known as Outlook Mobile.
And since Google’s Help Center on the “Supported IMAP Client List” didn’t include instructions on how to set up a Windows Mobile Pocket PC, I thought I’d create a brief tutorial. All steps are made within the Messaging client (Start > Messaging).
