iPhone and Google Apps for Your Domain Config
I had a few issues configuring the iPhone's mail client to work with my domain hosted Gmail account. If you have a plain old gmail account the settings are trivial. My personal Gmail account was configured in seconds. Since my company domain is hosted using Google's Apps for Your Domain service I had to configure the mail differently. The steps are simple: 1. Instead of picking GMail as your account type just select "Other..." when you are prompted by the iPhone. 2. For your incoming mail host type in 'pop.googlemail.com'. No extra port information required. 3. For your incoming account name use 'recent:username@domain_name'. (See this note from Google as to why you probably want this configuration.) 4. Enter your password. 5. For your outgoing mail host type in 'smtp.googlemail.com'. Again no extra port information. 6. User your email address as the account login 'username@domain_name'. No extra "recent:" needed here. 7. In the advanced settings make sure SSL is turned on for both incoming and outgoing protocols. Any other settings (message retrieval, preview count, etc) are up to you.
