    Default Google Sync - Now with PUSH GMAIL support.
    Today, Google has finally answered the call of pretty much everyone who has an iPhone and a Gmail account. Google Sync, a free service from Google which allows you to push Calendar and Contacts over the air now finally supports Gmail.

    Quote Originally Posted by The Official Google Blog
    Earlier this year, we launched Google Sync which allows you to synchronize your Gmail Contacts and Google Calendar with your iPhone, Windows Mobile, and S60 devices. Today, we're adding Gmail support to Google Sync for iPhone, iPod Touch and Windows Mobile devices.

    Using Google Sync, you can now get your Gmail messages pushed directly to your phone. Having an over-the-air, always-on connection means that your inbox is up to date, no matter where you are or what you're doing. Sync works with your phone's native email application so there's no additional software needed. Only interested in syncing your Gmail, but not your Calendar? Google Sync allows you to sync just your Contacts, Calendar, or Gmail, or any combination of the three.


    To try Google Sync, visit m.google.com/sync from your computer. If you're already using Google Sync, learn how to enable Gmail sync. Since push Gmail has been a popular request on our Product Ideas page and Help Forum, we look forward to hearing your feedback, so drop us a line and let us know how it's working or what you'd like to see next.

    Douglas Gresham, Software Engineer, Google Mobile

    Update at 8:20am: We jumped the gun on this post. The new feature should be rolling out in a few minutes.
    If you're already using Google Sync, then enabling Gmail support is as easy and going to you mail settings, deleting the IMAP gmail account and enabling Mail under Google Sync.

    So there you have it! Now there's no longer a need to buy a stupid app that let's you know when you have mail or setting up complicated growl services.

    I'm a helpful jerk, fear me.

    the push Gmail is horribly slow -- taking 1-2 minutes to notify of a new email. NuevaSync.com takes about 3-4 seconds to push the new email. Less than impressed.

    is there a good tutorial on this? I followed the tutorial on googles page and created an exchange account and told it to sync mails, but it's not working. I don't get push messages and when I open mail it asks me to create a mail account ...

    Nuevasync.com is a third-party support service that costs $25/year.
    Google Sync is Google's own support. And it's free. And it's on BETA still.

    I have multiple exchange accounts. Only allowing 1 really hinders me.
    Dirty as I wanna be!

    Question Only one exchange account allowed
    I've noticed I'm not the only one complaining about the one Exchange account limitation, and I was wondering what everyone thinks about future support for multiple accounts? I don't know much about the nitty gritty of Exchange protocol, but is there some technical limitation to syncing multiple accounts that anyone knows of? Do other devices allow multiple exchange accounts? I'm just curious to know what information anyone reading this post may have. Thanks in advance!
