    Guys,
    I have a gmail account which im checking with my iphone. I also customized my Mail on the Macbook with the same account, but for some mysterious when i delete a mail on my iphone it continues to be there when I check again my account. As if they are cannot be`synced`

    Are you using POP or IMAP to access your GMail? This makes a difference, namely that POP deletions are only local to that machine, whereas IMAP changes affect the mail server too, and thus all machines connecting to it.

    By default, the GMail setup on the iPhone/iPod touch uses POP. If you want to use IMAP you'll have to choose other account type and set it up manually. It DOES work though, I've tried it.
