    i dont know if this is a general android or maybe just for the droid.

    but will the droid offer true 2 way sync with gmail?

    basically if i send a email from my laptop will it show up in the sent folder on the phone itself?

    i searched here and on google for this but was unable to get a solid answer. I found alot about contact sync but not so much on 2-way email sync.

    Yea I think that's the easy part. @ way syng is baisically an imap set up. In other words. when i open a email now it shows open. So if google aliows a setting like that then no issue. Now if google only supports pop then you'll get it but it won't show open in your mail box. :droidrun:

    on the subject of email synching, can anyone tell me if the droid will be able to notify me once i receive an email from another account other than gmail? like yahoo. for you bb users, you know how the bb is really good on notifying you as soon as you receive an email. my understanding so far is that only gmail will be capable of receiving email notifications as they come, whereas other accounts would require a set time interval on when to check (5, 10, 15, 30, 1 hr) for new mail. can anyone else confirm this? thanks

    If you haven't been notified yet, yes the corporate email has push support. And notifications can be customized for each account.
