When I set up my GMail accounts I am not given a choice between POP3 and IMAP4 due to the automatic settings within WinMob 6.1. Is there anyway to ensure I am using IMAP4 with my GMail account?

I'm not getting an option to use any template, Gmail or generic. It just asks me for my email address and password and when I filll them in, it automatically finds settings for gmail and fills them in, leaving me no option to choose imap.

I did manage to go in and edit the pop sserver to imap, so we'll see if that changes anything

So what I found out is that if you put in a bogus email address at first (i.e. g@g) and it will ask if you want to automatically find the settings. just uncheck the 'auto find' setting and GMail IMAP can be set up. It is absolutely amazing what I find when I RTFM;-)

Thanks for all the replies.
