    Well if your company allows exchange support for any phone then it would work for the iphone. They are probably giving you the run around by saying they don't "support" it as in if something gets messed up on your phone they don't want to have to worry about it.

    as far as your situation is concerned, there's going to be no way for gmail to tell your outlook that the message has been read. that's where you are stuck. even with a gmail sync there's no communication back to your outlook. you are just forwarding to gmail to read it so that's your sticking point. it's a one way communication and it won't support 2 way.
