What are the changes?
sorry i didnt specify but this is pertaining to gmail accessed via the internet on my iphone. Looks almost like the mail app now. Istopped using the app a bit back due to its crappy functions.

Ok, i think this has to do with the imap/pop thread started yesterday...

Ah yes the new mobile view. It's kind of annoying although it does load faster. So I'm not sure if I hate it or if I should give it a chance.

Does anyone know how to get it to go back to the regular view in iPhone Safari?

How about a screen shot if possible?

As i've said in another similar thread. This is mobile discrimination! :D. I'm not knocking the mobile version I think it works great. I just don't like the fact that your not given a choice. Because your on a mobile device you are defaulted to the Mobile version

I know a few sites that only check if you're using a mobile device from the main page... so if get into the site a different way, you can access the real website.. (although i doubt theres a way to do this with gmail...)

Thanks for the suggestion but its always been on English US. Still no IMAP :\ Even created a new account and no IMAP for that either...
I read some were that they are not rolling IMAP out for some users. If you still haven't got it you probably wont get it.

You're right :( Asked my roommate to check and he has IMAP under settings. What did I do wrong Gmail?!

EDIT:
We're working hard to roll out IMAP access to all our users, but it'll take about a week.

To use IMAP, you must have your interface language set to 'English (US)'. You'll know that IMAP is available in your account when the Forwarding and POP tab in your settings becomes Forwarding and POP/IMAP.

Until then, thanks for your patience!
Waiting game it is....

I guess you did nothing wrong.
My girlfriend got IMAP 'today' but I still don't have it.
Maybe we are less important people to Google. :D

Uh, I realised that I set my language set to 'English (UK)'. This can be a reason...
Now I changed the setting, so I will wait and see.
