I know i am not the only one w/this problem but i wanted to post and see if anyone has found a solution of if there has been an update. i googled around today to no avail. issue: gmail imap read status does not update in apple mail until its restarted. If i read an email on my iphone, it will show as read in iphone mail, gmail web interface, but NOT apple mail unless its been restarted. if the email is read in apple mail, the gmail interface will show it as read, as will the iphone. surely apple is aware of the issue? has this been fixed in snow leopard? anyone discovered any work arounds? feel free to post here, even if you have no answers, you jus happen to also suffer from this "affliction"
