    You have to delete the gmail.apk from the /system/app. Root explorer is an easy way. Terminal is another, but I'm not good with commands.

    Ok, I did these commands in terminal and it worked AFTER a reboot.
    su
    cd /system/app
    sysrw
    rm Gmail.apk
    sysro
    <rebooted> Wouldn't work before the reboot.
    Then installed from market.

    Yup, and that's why you have to remove the one in system/app. It installs in /data/app as com.google.android.gm-1.apk because god forbid it be easy to find.

    You can also use Titanium to uninstall it. That is what I did.

    Just don't forget to reboot. It was driving me crazy trying to figure out why the installation was failing
