    I'm curious to know if anyone has full capabilities of a web-based mail client on their touch.

    The one my school uses lets me read mail but I can't send anything.

    GMail lets me go to the page to compose mail, but by the time I finish typing in the send address, the whole page goes completely black and nothing else happens so I have to go back a page.

    This is a big selling point for my dad, so I'm trying to give him a comprehensive "heads up," and so far my advice to him is to wait because none seem to be working for me.

    well i haven't gotten my touch yet...but i have read through these threads a lot and watched tons of videos..i learned from one of the threads (ipod touch unboxing and high defi. vids) i think.....but he says that for GMail, after you login go to the bottom of the page an click on "standard HTML"....try that out and watch the third video posted on the forum posted by colto...

    Good Luck!!

    i havent had any sending email. Since it is the actual internet the internet based programs should work,

    I use Yahoo and Purdue Webmail both seem to work like they do on my comp.

    you have to change it if you want to send messages you can leave it the way it is if you don't want to reply to anyone with your touch...

    The key to using Gmail on the iPT is you have to disable the "Rich formatting" to type in the body of an email.

    Try going to m.gmail.com - its not as nice looking, but a tad easier to use on the iPod touch, and I'm pretty sure sending works fine.
