    Hey all,

    Got my Pre today. All very exciting.

    Just a few questions. I've searched for solutions but to no avail if you're wondering.

    1) My normal email situation is that I have one main Gmail account (A) which I feed 3 others (B, C and D) into using 'POP3' (which I don't really understand but works). I also can send mail from all 4 addresses while logged into account A using Gmail's 'Send mail as' feature. This has been all fine in the past.

    Having set-up account A on my Pre when it arrived today I'm getting mail from all 4 account. The problem is I can't choose which I send/reply to emails from.

    I tried setting-up account B on my Pre but I just got duplicates (obviously)

    People must have had this problem in the past/know a solution?

    2) I've seen this IMAP Gmail push idea on the net today. How is this different to the syncing 'as items arrive' setting?

    Thanks a lot for your help in advance.

    1: My guess is that you would have to add the accounts to your Pre then stop them from forwarding to your main account if you want to prevent duplicates on your phone and still be able to choose the account to send an email from.

    2: Syncing 'as items arrive' uses IMAP. As opposed to syncing items at a set time interval which uses POP3 (someone correct me if I'm mistaken).

    So manually setting up an IMAP thing (like alljeff says:

    Getting Started

    1. Click the email icon to open your email.
    2. Click the “Email” drop down arrow in the upper left hand corner.
    3. Select “Preferences & Accounts.”
    4. Scroll to the bottom and select “Add An Account.”
    5. Click the “Email” drop down arrow in the upper left hand corner again.
    6. Select “Manual Setup.”

    Palm Pre Settings for Push Google Apps Email & Gmail

    Mail Type: IMAP
    Email Address:

    * Google Apps users – Enter your full email address
    * Gmail users – Enter your full email address

    Incoming Mail Server
    Server Name: imap.gmail.com
    Username: Same as you entered for Email Address above.

    * Google Apps users – Enter your full email address
    * Gmail users – Enter your full email address

    Password: Enter your password.
    Port #: 993
    Encryption: SSL

    Outgoing Mail Server
    Server Name: smtp.gmail.com
    Use Authentication: Yes
    Port#: 465
    Encryption: SSL

    Root Folder: leave blank)
    is the same/does the same thing as a normal account with the 'as item arrive' setting?

    Cheers!

    Yes it should since you are using gmail's IMAP server.

    You need to set up your other accounts on the Pre to be able to choose which account to send from.

    I have two accounts which I used to use regularly but are now just an autoforward to my gmail account. When I compose, I can choose which of the three (actually four, since I also have an exchange account) I wish to use as the From address.
