I'm a google apps small business user and my email is through my domain on google apps. My iPhone is set up through Exchange, so the calendar, contacts and email are synced with google apps.
That said, I'm sick of ATT's lack of service and I'm trying out the Droid. Now I'm not sure if this is because I'm new to the Droid or if it's working-as-intended, but the email sync takes much longer than on the iPhone.
With the iPhone set up via Exchange, I receive emails on the phone nearly as quickly as I received it on my Blackberry; it hit Outlook maybe a half second before it hit my iPhone. However, on the Droid, I probably receive the email about 30-60 seconds after it hits Outlook. What's worse is that when I'm actually in the Mail application on the Droid, new mail does not show up until I hit refresh (I tested that twice for 5 minutes each).
I've searched for a solution, but nothing has come up. Apparently the Exchange ability on the Droid is not the same as that on the iPhone, and it appears Google wants App users to access their accounts via the standard google account.
Is there something I'm doing wrong here? Or is this just how it is with the Droid?
