    when you plug your phone to the computer and start itunes, there should be a tab called "info" that lets you do email configurations (i'm not too familiar with that as i'm using mobileme and have had never had to do anything in itunes for my gmail account)

    did you set up gmail on your phone already? what exactly does it do when you try to go into mail? crash back to the springboard? is your phone jailbroken? if it is, do you have bossprefs installed? if so, you can go in there and choose the fix user dir permissions.

    if your phone is jailbroken and you set up this new phone with a restored backup from the old jailbroken phone, that may also be why your mail is crashing. just taking a few guesses here with the info given

    I have jailbroken/pwned quite a few iphones/ipots, and I always click 'no' on the synce contacts or whatever. You can't click on the email icon on your iphones springboard and then click gmail and then manually enter your info? it should work
