Enable IMAP on your Gmail account
If you're like me you've been eagerly waiting for Gmail to enable IMAP access ever since you created your account. They've been slowly enabling it for a while now but today I learned a neat trick.
Go into settings and change your language setting to English(UK). Select "no" when it asks you if you want to enable it for your other google apps because the next step is to change it back to English(US). After that you should see IMAP enabled in settings.
No guarantees that it will work for you but it worked for me.
