Google confirms IMAP for Gmail - VIDEO
Some Gmail users are waking up this morning to a pleasant surprise: IMAP support. We first dug up some dirt on the IMAP-ey goodness last night. But it appears to be a phased rollout. Many users still aren't finding IMAP in their GMail settings.
Now Google is confirming that IMAP support is making the rounds. If you don't see it in your Gmail settings today, keep checking back, as the company is rolling the feature out to users "as fast as [they] can."
Google has also written up a few details about IMAP on the "What's new on Gmail" page. And there's even a handy little video showing how to use IMAP to synchronize Gmail with your iPhone.
