    I'm running 10.5.2 and I thought I'd give Apple Mail another shot with my Gmail IMAP account -- Mail in 10.5 and 10.5.1 seemed buggy for me re: Gmail--


    I'd like the ability to send and receive messages but I wouldn't mind avoiding downloading a few gigs of attachments. It seems to be doing it automatically at turtle speed-- like 3.2kb/sec-- I've had the program open and downloading since 10.5.2.

    Any suggestions for me?

    Apple Mail & Imap Gmail just don't work well together at all. After months of struggling with it I finally just switched back to POP and am MUCH happier.
