    Got a question from a n00b (iphone wise). just got an iphone and i have a quick question. I have a gmail account, and i also have an IMAP account on my home server that i run. should i continue to use gmail on my iphone? or should i forward my gmail to my imap and use my imap as a primary account? any help would be nice, thanks in advance.

    I would use your Gmail account instead of the IMAP server. It really doesnt make a difference, but your home server is alot more likely to go down than googles.

    Either one will get your mail to you though. Just my $.02

    Its an old bug! Fixed now, just make sure you set up the Gmail account with the "Recent Mode" option set to off.

    go with imap, theres a bug with gmail. sometimes when you want to retrieve your mail it will say "this message has not been downloaded from the server."
