Just a clarification in case any EE users are listening in: the plugin conflict was with MCImageManager by MoxieCode, not EE itself.

I’ve sometimes found that I can access my Gmail IMAP account in Mail.app when the Gmail website has been inaccessible.  I would add at least your Business Gmail account to the Mail.app as a backup in case you ever run into Gmail website problems again.

I also suffer from the Gmail/Safari problem talked about in 237. OK in Firefox and Chrome. Also tried PlugINCool, as well as removing Glims. Sure hope someone comes up with a fix. This is where you cut me off…... heck, I’m so confused)

Google has fixed (at least for me) the problem within Gmail (multiple -Chat items). Upon visiting I found a ‘clean’ menu with the ‘SPAM’ mailbox absent. I added (Show) the Spam mailbox back, and all is fine
