    Hey everyone. Is anyone else having trouble with google sync? My email is not pushing to my iPhone, but if I do check an unread message, it does sync back to my gmail on my computer. Ahhhh this is so frustrating!

    Did you set it up as a gmail account, or an exchange account? Add as exchange for the better push sync. m.google.com is the server, and your full email address for the username. And make sure the fetch new data is set to push, as stated above.

    I set mine up as Exchange today too and now it's not working. If I go to the Mail app on the iPhone, then it finds the new mail...but it's not being pushed.

    I looked on Google's forum and saw others complaining it wasn't working tonight either. I'm hoping it'll start working again soon. I know it was working earlier today when I first set it up.

    I'd love it if magically push starting working tonight *and* supported deleting rather than archiving emails. It has been well over a year since Google said they would think about fixing that in the future.

    It started working again for me now. However, the above poster is right. When you delete something it archives it instead of deleting it, unless you view the All Mail folder and delete it from there.

    I figured I'd just set the All Mail folder to the "Folder to Push" and do everything from there, but Sent Mail shows up there too, which makes it kind of confusing.

    Mine is not working either. It doesn't fetch the new emails even if I go to the Mail app.

    Check your "all mail" folder, as you're wrong, you have regular 'ol archive. The ONLY way to get regular 'ol delete is to setup via the Gmail icon/IMAP and then change the default setting to turn archive off.

    Any reason to set up your Gmail (I'm a google apps user) with exchange instead of Gmail?

    Hasn't been working all day for me in the uk. If I delete the exchange account and setup a new one, it pulls in all the emails including unread ones, but from then on new emails won't arrive in the inbox. They are not getting pushed and even if I open mail to sync the account it says its up to date but the new emails do not appear

    Not working here either. I thought it was because I updated to 4.2.1 last night and jailbroke. Tried everything from removing the mail account, rebooting, re-adding it. Can't get emails to push. People on twitter are complaining as well.

    Exchange (when it's working, lol) will push emails to your phone automatically as they arrive in your GMail account. the Gmail setting will "fetch" your emails - that is, request them and pull them down - less frequently. Every 15 minutes (or manually) is as often as it can fetch them.
