It looks like I’m one of the lucky ones whose IMAP support has already been turned on in gmail. Others are reporting that it hasn’t shown up for them yet. Settings now has a “Forwarding and POP/IMAP” tab with an “IMAP Access” section at the bottom. Just select Enable IMAP and you’re good to go. Mine was already enabled when I checked, so I jumped straight to configuring iPhone access. Inbox, All Mail, Drafts, Sent Mail, Spam, Starred, and Trash all show up as IMAP folders as do all of your labels. Very nice.

No go for me yet. What happens when you move a message from “Inbox” to “All Mail”? Is that the same as hitting “Archive” in the web interface?
It moves to All Mail and disappears from the Inbox on both the iPhone and on the web interface. If you look at it in All Mail via the web interface, it does not have the Inbox tag. So, it looks like the equivalent of archiving.
Hey … where’s the spam box?
Otherwise working just fine on the T-Mobile Dash.
Wish I could say the same for the TRIAL version of Outlook that shipped with the DASH. For the price of the DASH, I certainly didn’t expect to get cripple-ware!
