    Please note that I do not have an exchange server but I was told you can set up G mail as exchange. Is the correct?

    You can, I forget the exact steps but it's under Googles Help docs. You'll need to make a new mail account on your phone as Exchange not Gmail.

    Gmail as exchange on iPhone: YES

    Gmail as exchange on iMac: NO, must use IMAP for email, CALDAV for calendars, and "Sychronize with Google" for contacts.
