    Hi, I just got a new iphone 3g... i have a lot of questions but I'm actually enjoying discovering them on the go; but there is one thing where I just can't wait and I am unable to figure it out:
    I have created a Gmail account and works both on the iphone and on Mail 2.0 but if I recieve a mail on the iphone then I dont get it on Mail. How can I recieve a copy of the message on mail regardless if I open it with the Iphone??

    I agree with the advice to use IMAP because then you will see all your mail wherever you are. But if you have accounts that are POP3, you need to go to the Advanced section of the configuration for that account on the iPhone and make sure "Delete from server" is set to never on the phone. Then set Mail on the desktop to delete it from the server on what ever schedule makes most sense to you.
