I only got it last night, even after numerous language switches and  
other permutations on Friday.

However, I've moved back to POP.  I'm just not particularly enamoured  
with IMAP for my GMail account...  partly because all the GMail spam  
gets pulled across too.

Apple Mail had a fairly big hissy fit when I added the account  
though.  I ended up having to wipe half my GMail account (eg.  
Underscore) just to stop freezing up.
