    So Android 2.0 has the ability to sync Gmail and other Pop3 accounts. I currently have my Gmail account online set up to check my pop3 accounts and the emails go in to the inbox. My question is this. Once I set up my Gmail account through my phone, I shouldn't have to set up the same pop3 accounts as they should show up in the Gmail inbox on the phone and list which pop3 account they came from just like the online inbox, correct? I hope thats right. :p

    Thanks.

    That's how I have it on my BB. I have one g-mail account synced to my BB and my other 5 accounts set to my Gmail account.

    Works fine.

    You're correct. A very simple setup. This will most likely be the setup I use :biggrin:

    E-Mail inbox

    My emails from my outlook in box are not staying on my droid. I seem to only be getting new messages. Am I missing a setting??

    Outlook is a mail program that you use to retrieve you emails from a server. Who provides your email/internet? You could also include the @whatever.com of your email address and that would help for us to recommend options for you to link your current email to a Gmail account.

    Start with this link and see if you have any questions.

    Get mail from other accounts - Gmail Help

    Basically your gmail account will act as Outlook does to retrieve email from Verizon's server. It would then sync with your Droid.
