This document is a general introduction to syncing Google@UH.
Functionally, Google@UH Sync and IMAP differ in both the app used to check email on your device, and the services that can be synced. When using Google@UH Sync, mail is checked via the Gmail app. When using IMAP, mail is checked via the Email app. Google@UH Sync allows for multiple services to be synced to your Android device, such as your Google@UH email, calendar, and contacts, while IMAP allows only for email syncing.
