    I know and have read to enable IMAP. BUT do you disable Pop? Or what do you regarding POP

    First of all, read this informative site Google put together:
    https://mail.google.com/support/bin/answer.py?answer=77702

    I then went into my Gmail account, disabled POP, enabled IMAP.
    Remove the current Gmail account from my iPhone, added a new one using "Other" as an account type.

    Should be good to go :D

    P.S. I'm assuming you have no other devices (computers, phones, etc) that are using Gmail POP. If so, disabling POP will eliminate those devices ability to get your email.

    Be patient with Gmail...

    since they are doing everything they can to offer IMAP to all Gmail accounts. I know some of my friends are still without IMAP. The last message was that it would take a few days to accomplish the task. :cool:

    You can have quite a few emails setup on the iPhone, not just one.

    Yep, I've got five (5)...

    different email accounts and the great thing about IMAP is that they allow you to manage your email account on your iPhone and the account is immediately updated when you log in to the same account when you get home on your desktop! No more "losing emails" because you opened the file at work; that one always "chaps my hide" when I think back about all the emails that I can only see on my work computer! Good Luck as your iPhone becomes IMAP compatible for ALL of your email accounts... :cool:

    One other question, I have IMAP, and Gmail all set , now however, I am seeing all the folders under my GMAIL acct. Is there a way to NOT see all of them? Or is that just the way it is and I'm stuck with it ?

    Thanks

    You do have to see those. You can, however, map your Sent, Drafts, and Trash on the iPhone to the appropriate directories on Google, which helps some. :)
