Let’s face it – people are idiots. They can’t manage a simple task and need to be reminded ever five minutes not to kill themselves with household products. My favorite’s Comet & coffeepots. The following snippet is a gem from the Gmail IMAP Client Setup, or how to get your Gmail on your phone, Outlook, whatever…

I love the entire set of warnings in the instruction set, especially since it starts with: Do NOT save deleted messages on the server. It gets fun in part three, my emphasis.

Do NOT save deleted messages to your [Gmail]/All Mail folder as some clients will try to empty this folder and ultimately fail. This can lead to delayed mail access or excessive battery consumption on a mobile device.
