    No. I use the Mail app for my MobileMe account. I have a gmail account and use Google Notifier to let me know when I get mail.

    I use mail.app to keep a copy of all my gmail offline on my MB, and I use it for normal operations, like read, reply, .. draft mail.. I prefer it so I can have various mails open, include pictures the way I want, etc, without relying on the browser.

    However, I usually swap to gmail when I search for something. The search is simply going 10 times faster on gmail than on my mail.app (Tiger).

    Moreover, at work, my mail.app can't synchronize for whatever firewall reason. So I rely only on gmail during the day.

    I seem to be using Gmail more these days...Mail sometimes takes forever to send an email. After 10 minutes it's still sending. Doesnt always take forever...just now and then, but it is frustrating. Even happens on short emails with no attachments:confused:

    So rather than wasting time, I just copy the text into Gmail and delete the email from Mail.

    Gets sent in no time in Gmail:D

    When I have the time I'll get round to sorting out Mail. Prefer having access to emails without having to connect to the internet.
