Anyone who has made the change to IMAP or has googled IMAP vs: POP knows why IMAP is better for most people. Thus most people would rather use IMAP, especially with multiple devices accessing one email account. Without IMAP I can not get my Google apps for business account to work with ACT. Everything else works fine, including sync. To have upgraded to 2013 Premium at considerable expense and to not be able to have ACT and Gmail work well together is completely unacceptable.
If enough people let Sage know how urgent it is to support IMAP with Gmail, perhaps they could move it to the top of the list. Do I get an aye on this?
