    Hi,

    I'm havin a bit of trouble with my iphone, i'm trying something maybe impossible on it. Let me explain.

    I use outlook on my mac (hell i don't want) and as itunes offers me, I syncro my contacts of outlook on my iphone.
    The thing is i'd like to add my Gmail accounts but my gmail account is not configured on a mailbox but just webbased.

    Is it possible to do a sync with the gmail account and the outlook at the same time?

    Thank you

    Simplest thing is to set up Gmail as an Exchange account on your phone and only turn on Contacts sync, leaving email & calendar turned off.

    You'll have two Contacts groups on your phone, one from Gmail and one from your Mac.

    See here for how to setup on your phone: http://www.google.com/support/mobile/bin/answer.py?answer=138740
