I use IMAP for Gmail, as Google recommends, with the Evolution MUA. The "filters" and "labels" that Gmail uses are not working as I would like them to. Possibly with time, I will improve on those settings. After I download my email into Evolution, I manually move all the CentOS mail into the CentOS "label". After that, things are organized. :-) IMAP is much better than POP3, for a number of reasons, as Google says.
