Gmail Experiment Over

My gmail experiment is over. I'm reverting to Apple's Mail.app as my main email processing axe. The big downside to using gmail as my primary mail application was that I had no off-line access to my email. Being somewhat of a road warrior there were times I wanted access to mail but was unable to find a network connection. Yes, shocking as it may seem, there are some bandwidth deserts out there even in New Jersey. I suppose I could have used Gmail Mobile but my phone couldn't handle it. I also suppose I could have kept Mail.app in sync more frequently but the idea was to make my life simpler and go down to one app not suddenly support two mail applications. I guess I could have always bough some kind of EVDO card as well to use the cellular network for internet connectivity but I didn't want to shell out the dough. At some point web based mail will fix the local caching of email issue and I'll be back for a second look. Now what I need is a better spam filter.

Why not use both?

I get mail.app to fetch my gmail via pop3s ans send via smtps.
