    What do you mean? All my my existing email accounts work with my iPhone's mail client. Well, my Exchange account at work doesn't work, but you know what I mean. When I activated my iPhone, iTunes automatically setup all of my accounts which were active in Mail. These include AOL, Gmail, .mac, and my cable provider account.

    The takeaway message is that you can expect all of your POP3 and IMAP accounts to work with your iPhone.

    Try Entering 'pop.googlemail.com' in the 'Incoming Mail Server:' field instead

    he had problem with google mail, not gmail i use gmail and it works fine.

    and yahoo probably works like hotmail, you can't use it with mail unless you have a paid account.

    The OP is from the UK. Gmail is now GoogleMail in the UK.
