Thanks for your response LE, but I don't think it is a Gmail issue. I don't see any problems with my desktop that accesses GMail via client software, and there are no problems with the other android apps I've looked at simultaneously with the ROM app. All the other apps correctly access the account without any errors, but I think I have a clue as to where the problem lies.
To allow my desktop SW Mozilla Thunderbird to display the account folders correctly, there is a "IMAP server directory" which is named [Google Mail] it's enclosed in square brackets. Without this entry, all folders, both system and personal are put under a folder called Google Mail, although personal folders don't always show up. Generally, the IMAP communication between GMail and Thunderbird seems a bit dodgy, and I'm not sure where the fault lies.
So, when I look in the app, I see the system folders, no problem, then at the bottom is the [Google Mail] folder where my messages lie. Tapping on that folder brings up the rest of my folders, but also the Internal Error. The app seems to have a problem with that folder. Other apps I've tried behave normally, but instead of displaying the folders simply as a folder list, eg
Folder 2 (and nested inside)
Sub folder 1
Sub folder 2 etc
They display as
[Google Mail]/Folder 1
[Google Mail]/Folder 2
[Google Mail]/Folder 2/Sub folder 1
[Google Mail]/Folder 2/Sub folder 2
[Google Mail]/Folder 3
[Google Mail]/Folder 3/Sub folder 1
[Google Mail]/Folder 3/Sub folder 1/Sub-Sub folder 1
[Google Mail]/Folder 3/Sub folder 1/Sub-Sub folder 2
[Google Mail]/Folder 3/Sub folder 2
A messy display that takes up lot of display space and makes finding a particular folder hard. The folders can't be collapsed, they are displayed as shown, even when for example, Folder 2 is a holding folder for the sub folders inside, and contains no files itself, it is still shown.
Obviously it looks like differences in IMAP implementation between GMail and various clients, but I can't be alone in this. Thunderbird has a reasonable user base and I've looked at 5 or 6 android apps that display the folder paths as above.
I've also just found that for some reason the ROM app won't show pictures inside mails, and they're attached either. I tap on the icon to show the picture but the icon changes without showing the picture. Anyone experience this?
