    I just set up a Yahoo account and have all of my Gmail forwarded here to solve the problem discussed here, but I can't find how to turn on the Yahoo mail 'push' feature anywhere in the settings. I'm using the 'old' version, not the beta. The small bit of info on the beta doesn't mention the push feature so I haven't switched to it. Can someone please tell me how to turn on the Yahoo mail push feature??? Thanks!

    The work around to this is to use the POP mail service on the iPhone.

    Since you are using the direct e-mail service for Gmail, this would happen, however if you use the POP service (which is free from Gmail) it would not happen.

    You dont "turn on" Yahoo push. It just works. You have to configure your account using the Yahoo Mail shortcut on the iPhone, thats it.

    Yahoo has been having spotty service since the iPhone launch. There are NO options you can set on the iPhone - just your user ID and password, thats it. If its not working, its Yahoo's fault, not yours.

    I dont understand this answer. GMail IS POP. Yahoo is the one that is NOT POP unless you get the paid version. Yahoo free accounts can only be accessed through the web, and now, since the iPhone launch, they have added IMAP access from the iPhone ONLY.

    This workaround has been mentioned before and unfortunately does not fix the problem for me. I tried both manually adding a gMail account and using iPhone's automated set-up...with neither fixing the problem.

    It's so odd that Google makes a great Gmail client for my Sprint Razr, which shows the conversation threads, and exactly matches my "online" inbox, and doesn't make one for the iPhone. I think Google should get on this and make one.

    I found the following article:

    iPhone: About Gmail and Recent Mode
    http://docs.info.apple.com/article.html?artnum=305937

    When sending Gmail from iPhone, the sent message will show up as a new message in your iPhone Inbox as if you have cc'd yourself. If you don't want this behavior, try turning "Use Recent Mode" off.

    I set up two gmail accounts and forward messages that are to me from one to the other. then the 2nd account is set to delete on pop access.
