The Apple Iphone And Gmail

Jan 25, 2008
Google's Gmail email service has been a huge success. The main reasons for this are the very simple user interface that is incredibly easy to use and the ever expanding amount of storage space you are provided with. You also have the power of Google's search engine capabilities to help you locate any email without any problems. If you are constantly on the go and it is therefore very likely that you will want to have the ability to access your Gmail account no matter where you are.

If you have both a Gmail account and an iPhone you will also probably want to set up your iPhone so that you can access your Gmail account directly from your phone.

Google has just recently announced that you are able to add a protocol to your iPhone strictly for Gmail accounts. This IMAP application allows Gmail account holders to check their e-mail on any offline e-mail readers, which is perfect for individuals who have an iPhone, and even for those that don't. It is extremely simple to install and run the IMAP application on your iPhone, thus allowing you to seamlessly integrate your iPhone to your Gmail account. The first step to beginning this process is to go to your Gmail account and enable IMAP. You can do this by logging into your Gmail account and then going to Settings. After that click on Forwarding and POP/IMAP, then click "Enable IMAP."

The next thing to do is to configure your iPhone to connect to your Gmail account. To do this tap on Settings and then on Mail. Once you are there you should click on Add Account. Do not select the Gmail option as this has not yet been updated to work with IMAP. Instead choose Other. You will need to provide your name, your host name which for Gmail will be imap.gmail.com and your email address which should include the @gmail.com after your username.

You will then move to the Outgoing Mail Server, or SMTP. Under the Host Name, you will want to put: smtp.gmail.com then save all of your changes. You have now just set up your IMAP Gmail account, thus allowing you to view all of your Gmail messages, both old and new.

Being able to access your email when on the move is becoming increasing important in today's fast paced world. Communication is very important and having the ability to access your emails wherever you are from your iPhone means that you no longer have to be tied to a desktop computer to keep on top of things. Whether you are a business professional or just somebody that uses email regularly you will no doubt benefit from having instant access to your emails no matter where you might be.
