    I'm hoping someone can come up with a suggestion for me...

    My computer at work is running Windows7. At home, I run Linux. And of course, I have my iPhone and my iPad. This is causing a dilemma for my work email...

    I have access to the web based version of my company's email (which is through GoDaddy) Problem is, I only have 20MB (Yes, MB) for mail storage, so I very quickly go through that. From my work and home PC, I used the web based access.

    So, I settled on Gmail and it's been doing great. Set it up to handle my work account and my school account (Technically, 3 addresses counting the Gmail account).I quickly found that the stock mail app can not handle multiple address on one account, and can only send outgoing messages from the gmail address (which I don't use directly). So I am using the Gmail app. Problem is, calendar events. I get several a day, but I can not get them to sync with my iCalendar. I would have preferred to use the stock mail app because of this. So, is there either an EASY way to get my calendar events to jive with iCalendar from Gmail? Or is there another alternative that will allow this?

    Thanks!!!

    You should be able to add your Gmail account and only enable Calendar for it, which should pull all your calendar events and show them in the native calendar app on the phone: https://support.google.com/calendar/answer/151674?hl=en You can continue using the Gmail app for mail.

    Alternatively you can potentially use another app, like perhaps the main Google app or CalenMob app or Sunrise Calendar app or one of other similar calendar apps.

    Thanks for the reply. I have it set up that way, but it doesn't pull any events from the email. I wonder if it's because the gmail account is different than my actual work account. Meaning, I have MYNAME@gmail.com...but I'm using that gmail account as a client for my work account MYNAME@MYJOB... either way, the Calendar app doesn't update from my gmail account...

    It's possible it's because of that. I think if you associate your work email address with your Gmail account that should make it pick up events from your work email and add them to Google Calendar: http://gigaom.com/2008/01/20/associate-e-mai/
