    So much for trying to simplify something. Also, the 15 min I stated is the duration of time specified by the email preference on said account. Not including the other intervals allowed to select. So my initial answer still holds true...simplified.

    Have you got a link for this? I don't remember seeing that.

    most people would set the default gmail client to the push setting.

    Hoping that Google can fix the calendar sync, only syncs to your primary calendar

    NeutralJW @ Sep 22nd 2009 1:07PM
    Google can sync multiple calendars. See this page:

    Mail, Calendar, & Contacts Setup : Choose Which Calendars to Sync - Mobile Help

    I just set it up on my iPhone and it works fine.

    are you sure?

    go to m.google.com/sync on your phone - you can select up to 25 calendars, other than youremailaddress@gmail.com, you'd like to sync on your phone using Google Sync.

    NeutralDurvivor @ Sep 22nd 2009 3:46PM
    Visit m.google.com/sync using your iPhone. You will be directed to a special page, where you will be able to choose which of your Google Calendars to sync. By default, yes, only your default calendar is selected, but you can select other calendars. Including the Google Provided birthday calendar.

    However, the recent sports calendars are not supported for sync.

    guess I should have said for WinMo...can anybody get multiple calendars on their winmo device?

    Google Calendar sync issue:

    Delete and re-add your annually recurring events and you should stop having sync errors.
    I also saw some topics on this before, when I was trying to figure out work-arounds for our lack of EAS support.

    Is anyone else just getting a "Download of the message body timed out. The system will retry soon." error when viewing the body of every message?

    I am. I think everyone is.

    Think the delay in the new firmware maybe attributed to this not working?

    This is ludicrous. Why would anyone with a Pre want to go from GMail IMAP to EAS?

    Google intended the EAS feature to be for devices that do not support Gmail IMAP Idle, IE, NOT THE PRE. The Pre does not need to use this service because it has Google Sync built into to Synergy. It is intended for lesser devices like the iPhone.

    EAS is extremely unreliable and I would recommend avoiding it like the plague.

    I attribute it to the "ooh shiny" factor. New acronym means you gotta try it at least once.

    Haha, EAS is like the plague.... Take into consideration that most corporate business do not touch e-mail systems unless they have EAS capabilities. The Pre didn't get the full fledged business recognition until WebOS 1.1. Google adding EAS support will give them the exposure that they need.

    It has "As items arrive" as an option but when you first setup the Pre and input your email settings with google, it defaults to 15 min intervals for checking your email. Like I said, I was just simplifying the explanation.

    If anybody cares, I just read that this doesn't support draft emails. The IMAP method does.

    Not in my experience. I've used a full blown EAS solution before and it was one of the best email systems I've used. Everything syncs and updates instantaneously on all your devices and computers. IMAP IDLE is definitely better than polling, but I find that my emails aren't marked as read on my Pre after I check them on my computer. When I switched to try out the Google EAS option, my email status synced immediately. It works much better. However, it seems Google doesn't allow me to use an alias with their Google Sync service yet, so I'm back to IMAP for the moment.

    How does the IMAP issues with gmail and trashing items vs archiving work if you switch to EAS? I've gotten the archive going by changing trash folder to all mail, but doing so requires disabling IMAP labs and losing mark for deletion functionality.

    Well I think the EAS vs IMAP issue is a mute point since EAS isn't able to download the body of the email. Basically rendering the ability to check your email from your phone useless. Also, and this really goes for the email in general, Palm needs to impliment the ability to shut off recieving email between time periods like WM email allows.

    I subscribe to a hosted exchange mainly for outlook support (non OWA), does gmail EAS support outlook support?

    Is m.google.com/sync as described an iPhone-only thing? Not working for ne.

    Just found this thread as I tried to get EAS working on my pre. I too am getting the message "Download of the message body timed out. The system will retry soon." error.

    For those who question why someone would want EAS vs IMAP, I'm on an enterprise google account. Our IT has shut down POP and IMAP, so the availability of EAS is the only way I can get email on the Pre's native app. So, let's find a solution to this problem rather than argue the virtues . . .

    What is a google EAS account? I thought google enterprise was this antithesis of exchange?
