What is the best way to setup my email that is hosted by Google Apps for Domains?
If you're running iOS4, set it up like an Exchange account. That's how I have mine setup and it works great.
Do you have any instructions on how to do this? Also, will my Google hosted email be pushed to my iPhone 4?
+1 on the Exchange account.
I've got it setup so sync contacts, calendar and mail easily enough...
IMAP is fine, although Exchange will work behind HTTP/HTTPS-only proxies.
This is how I set it up:
It looks like everything setup correctly but when I go into my Inbox it says "Cannot Get Mail: The connection to the server failed."
In your Google App account, do you have it checked to allow mobile syncing?
I have both POP and IMAP enabled.
I found Google Sync to be sporadically unreliable. It would work fine for 6 months then for a month it would have up and down reliability.
When the iOS4 came out I switched my Google Apps for Domain to regular Gmail because I also wanted threaded message view.
Using Exchange in my testing (aka Google Sync) was not giving me threaded messages. I think that only works though Gmail setup.
Are you using the premium (paid) version of Google apps to be able to sync Exchange style?
I am using the free version of Google Apps for Domains. There is currently an Exchange issue on Google's end that forces your phone to Auto Lock in one minute.
This was mentioned in another thread on here somewhere.
Other than that, it works great.
No I don't have Google Apps Premium, is it worth the upgrade to set up my email through Exchange vs. setting it up through Gmail on the iPhone? Are there features I would be missing?
You can add the account as a normal gmail account, it's painless. Don't bother with exchange.
I am using the paid version for my own domain account. My bad, I thought the original poster was using the paid version as well.
Would my email be pushed if setup through Gmail or Exchange?
i was wondering the same thing... and figured it out...
when managing your domain, there is a setting to enable active sync... check that and your configuration settings for activesync will work..
remember its when managing your domain and not your email account
Again, is this specific to the paid version or can the free version do it as well?
It does not get pushed when setup as gmail. It should get pushed when setup as exchange, but I can't vouch for that.
Something tells me that's just the paid version. I'm on the paid and have that option. And, I think that's why I ended up going with the paid.
On a plus, it's $50/year as opposed to doing hosted Exchange where there's usually a higher charge per year.
Holy cow, this does work for the free version. Very nice!
Will this allow you to sync with Outlook on the desktop using an Exchange profile with Google Apps on your own domain as well?
Without a doubt, as exchange. Just enable the google mobile sync option in the control panel first. I've used this with my personal domain for a while. Works great. Even has the wife's seal of approval.
Thanks guys, everything works perfectly after I enabled Google mobile sync.
