    I will eventually get round to adding email addresses in address book soon.

    I use my iPhone to read pretty much all my GMail, I will send a few emails from the phone but nothing huge, if I need to write a long email I will do it from my MacBook or iMac as I will need to check grammar and spelling comprehensively.
