How to setup up IMAP Gmail on your iPhone (video)

Google recently added IMAP support to its Gmail email service, a major boon for iPhone users since it allows changes made by the user to be reflected on the server, won't put both sent messages in your inbox and more. In addition to text-based step-by-step instructions, Google has now posted a video demonstrating how to setup IMAP Gmail on the iPhone. The process is pretty simple: Enable IMAP in your Gmail account settings through a Web browser, then create a new "Other" mail account in your iPhone's mail settings (the "Gmail" icon for creating new accounts doesn't yet work with IMAP). The video is displayed below, but you won't be able to view it on an iPhone due to the lack of Flash support.
