    Hi,

    Yes, I know this topic has been discussed on this forum before, but I have not 100% been able to put the pieces together.

    I can get Apple Mail 3.2 running Gmail via IMAP with no problem by following the instructions on the google site:

    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?hl=en&answer=81379

    Then I set my account as directed by Google for recommended account settings:

    http://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=78892

    I am able to send and receive email. But I see some quirks:

    1. When I send a message, it is not stored in the Apple Mail "Sent" box. It just remains empty. Why?
    2. When I sent my first message the "Store Sent Messages on the Server" became checked even though I unchecked it during account setup. Why?
    3. If I have multiple gmail accounts that I set up in Apple Mail 3.2, will they all be under one Apple Mail 3.2 "Inbox" combined?

    Thanks for your help.

    Follow that link, and then see if you still have some questions :D

    That won't solve all of them but it will integrate mail with gmail very nicely :D
