Integration with Gmail API

Are there any plans to integrate synchronization using the Gmail API in addition to IMAP?

I’m fully appreciative of the complexity of IMAP, and I know there’s a known issue where logging is increasing sync time. With that said, it’s hard to beat the reliability and speed of a REST endpoint, so I’m just curious if this is in the cards.

Once all the logging and bound checks have been disabled, syncing over IMAP (with Gmail at least) will be near instantaneous – promise!

Because of how fast IMAP can be, there’s no plans to use Gmail’s API. I know other apps have made use of it, but Google expressly forbid building email clients with it. Doing so is just asking for trouble eventually :sweat_smile:
