    I like the email app on the Droid better than the Gmail app because of the combined inbox and color coded account email. The downside I found was that my gmail wouldn't push to it. Well I figured out how to make gmail push in the email app:

    1. Go into email, if you haven't set up an account yet it will automatically start you in the account creation wizard. If you already have an account, then you will have to press menu>add account.

    2. Enter your gmail address and password

    3. Press "Manual setup"

    4. Choose "Exchange Account"

    5. in the "Domain\Username" field type your full gmail address after the \, so it should look like this: \youremail@gmail.com

    6. The password field will auto-populate with the password you typed

    7. in the "exchange server" field erase "gmail.com" and type: m.google.com

    8. scroll down and click next

    9. It will say "retreiving account information" wait for that to finish

    10. choose the amount you want to synchronize and if you want it to be your default account.

    11. I unchecked "Sync Contacts from this account" because I have my contacts synced with my gmail profile on my phone

    12. Click Next

    13. Name your account

    14. Click done

    Worked for me, though emails get pushed a few seconds later than they do with the gmail app.

    Yeah, they are a little slower, but still much better than having it pull every 15 mins

    Tried that. Still nothing. It's still pushing to default Gmail App, but not to Email App.

    I remember setting up Exchange on my HTC Hero so I could use a 2nd Gmail account, and it worked for the most part - but it came with its quirks. Make sure you're settings are set to 'as they arrive" or something similar (I admittedly have never even opened the Droid Mail app)

    What settings do I enter to get this to work with my Google Apps Email (my own domain)? I tried using the regular Gmail app on the phone and it connected fine, but I'd rather use the other Email app which has combined in-boxes.
