I'm an avid Gmail user. When I first got my Macbook I set up with Gmail account with Apple's MAIL App. It worked great but within Gmail my emails weren't recognized as being read. Makes sense since I was doing all the reading with the Mail app. I stopped using Apple's Mail app completely when I realized I needed an up to date mail system knowing I'd be checking it daily from different places and not just my Mac. So I cleaned up my Gmail inbox and now do all my Gmail reading within GMAIL. I'm sure some prefer Gmail's homescreen as opposed to Apple's Mail app. The Dilemma As of now i'm using Google's Mobile App where I check my email on the Gmail mobile site. Works great and keep it clean just like when i'm at gmail.com on my macbook. Problem here is that unlike the iPod Touch Mail app, i'm notified when I get mail. And i'm pretty sure if I set up my Gmail account to the Mail App on the iTouch, it won't sync up with Gmail.com itself. Specifically what I mean is that if I read an email and delete it from iTouch's Mail app, my Gmail account itself within Google will still have it as un-read and def. will not be deleted. That;s not what I want, I want my email inbox to be up to date. Now what about The Cloud? MobileMe specifically. If I get mobileme I know both the Mail app in my iTouch and Macbook will be up to date...but what about my Gmail? Obviously I mean Google's Gmail. I fear there might not be a good solution for this...that's why i'm asking here. C'mon peeps, let's converse this one out.
