Does anyone know what setting (either on the iphone, mac or in gmail) I have to tweak to allow gmail to be delivered to BOTH my Iphone and Mac.
Currently, the first mail client to pull the mail gets the inbox item.
Make sure in your gmail settings you have IMAP enabled. Then setup your devices and your computer to pull it in.
personally I use Sparrow for Gmail on my mac and my iPhone/iPad I use a mixture of the Gmail application and setting up my account with the following exchange settings -
»support.google.com/a/users/bin/a ··· r=138740
Whatever you use on your mac make sure after the account is setup you go and look at the preferences to make sure it is using IMAP and not POP.
Both the MAC and Iphone show as IMAP. gmail account settings is POP disabled and IMAP enabled
I dropped the gmail account from the phone and added it back in still no good
I do have 2 step authentication enabled for gmail - wonder if that is an issue--
Nothin' left to do but smile smile smile
