If you’ve been one of the people trying to use Gmail via IMAP on your Windows Mobile device (and experiencing quite a few weird issues), the Google Mail team have news for you — they’ve fixed the problems.

We’ve worked with Microsoft engineers to debug the incompatibilities with Windows Mobile and made some tweaks to our code. As some people have already noticed, these fixes went out last week, so you should now have a better experience reading and sending Gmail messages using IMAP from your Windows Mobile device. If you haven’t yet set up IMAP, just follow the configuration instructions to get started.
