“Windows Mobile Gmail fans are getting antsy about a known glitch in the mobile e-mail offering that hasn’t been fixed by Google in about a month,” Nancy Gohring reports for IDG News Service.
“In October Google began supporting IMAP (Internet Message Access Protocol) for Gmail… Shortly after the IMAP capability was activated, users of Windows Mobile phones began complaining in online forums about problems. Some of them said that HTML (Hypertext Markup Language) e-mails showed up blank on their phones. Others said that message headers appeared on their phones but not the messages themselves,” Gohring reports.
“In late October, one user complained to Google about the problem with Windows Mobile and got a reply saying that Google hadn’t had the chance to test the Windows Mobile mail client,” Gohring reports. “‘Why would Google make this work with the iPhone and not WM devices?’ another user wrote in the forum after reading the letter that was purportedly from Google.”
“On Nov. 16, a Google employee posted a note acknowledging the problem. Google has added the issue on its Gmail known issues page, where users can report their experiences. Google says it is working to address the issue,” Gohring reports.
