I gotta think that no push is a limitation coming from Google. I would like badges, etc. as well. And I didn't know it went to $12. Here's the price history: http://appshopper.com/utilities/gmate-mail-for-gmailThanks for the heads up on Gmate. I had never seen that one before. It looks like it still runs the Gmail web interface though which means blocked images in html emails still wont show up and half of them don't render quickly. I also find it odd that for $12 it doesn't seem to include Push.
ha, this is for the iPhone.I used mail on Leopard, loved it. Used in SL with my Gmail account and seemed like it was broke. Now using MS Entourage.. it works better than Mail in SL with Gmail, yet still has irritating quirks. Technically broke as well. Love the MyDay planner, hoping they let you change the colors in the next update. Come on MS!
