Gmail users, do you use the Exchange option, or the Gmail button with email setup?
Do you see delays with either option? I'm using Exchange and thus far it seems ok. Albeit, I do like to use my Mobile ME. Except the past few days it's been s l o w . . .

I used to have it set as exchange and it was working great. Until I went to look for an old invoice to see hat payment option I had used and I couldn't find it. The mail search turned up absolutely nothing. I was baffled. Then I scrolled back and it was only sycning about a months worth of data, no matter how much I told it to sync. I was quite annoyed. That's when I removed the exchanged email and went back to a normal mail account ( I use the normal mail since I have google apps for domains ).
With IMAP this has worked flawlessly and the delivery of mail is only "delayed" by how long I decide to check for new data.

Doing that kind of search does not happen often, so I don't mind.
But if I remember well, you can set GMail only for Contacts and Calendar usung Exchange, and create a new account for emails for Gmail using the IMAP profile.

i have not had good luck at all using the exchange option. i'm just using imap with gpush and i've been very pleased. plus with gpush i'm able to see a preview of the message as well. i hardly ever use my mobile me anymore. at least not the email portion. i use it for my contacts and calendar. i need to get everything moved over to google and i'll just sync that as well.

Update: Yes, I have my Gmail account set up with Push, and it takes all of a few seconds for emails to arrive after they are sent. Wow...
And Yahoo, which also powers the att.net emails are Push out of the box! Nice! What makes Yahoo so special??
Exchange is great, but to limit us to one Exchange account on the iPhone is silly, and hopefully temporary.
By the way, I also use AOL and Windows Live Hotmail, which I have not figured out as to how to get them to push as of yet. Any suggestions?
