iPhone update may piss off Gmail users

sounds like Google is warning users about the newest iPhone update – it automatically converts POP Gmail accounts to IMAP. This is "good", but for people who don't know what happened, they will find that deleting messages actually deletes messages :)

At least the deleted messages are still in the trash for 30 days. The user could always move them out of the trash if its within that time period.

The real interesting thing about it is that on the "What's new" page http://mail.google.com/mail/help/about_whatsnew.html They blame it on Apple by saying "Important! Note to iPhone users: Apple recently changed the way the "delete" button works for some users in the iPhone mail app."

But on the Gmail blog http://gmailblog.blogspot.com/2008/01/important-changes-to-email-deletion-on.html they don't. They just say "There's a new software update for the iPhone."

Thought that was a little odd.
