How are you connecting to GMail? POP3 or IMAP? While I have two GMail accounts, using POP3 with one and IMAP with the other, I always never use the latter. The POP3 access seems to handle connectivity problems fine as far as I can tell (I have random connection drops when using "mobile broadband" on trains). The only IMAP account I am using regularily and also in connection drop situation is a Kolab account (I also get calendar and tasks through it), so it is a Disconnected IMAP: Cheers, Kevin
