    Does anyone have problems with using gmail with mail application? I tried it once and got it to work. Removed it since I wanted an email address I can access using the web.

    Anyway, I need to know if there's a problem about not being able to send or recieve messages or other issues concerning gmail use on apple mail. I'm thinking of setting up my aunt's email address using the mail app. I think that she'll find it easier to use. Especially for sending and recieving attachments such as pics, etc. Thanks. :D

    No problem here. Even have another gmail in entourage, both working simultaneously.
    Just give you aunt a heads up on exceeding the alloted outgoing mail limit.

    Whew! That's good to hear. No recurring problems whatsoever? Just trying to make sure there aren't any complications. My aunt's not exactly tech-savvy. That's why she has a mac too. It just works! Hahaha

    Maximum attachment size


    With Gmail, you can send and receive messages up to 20 megabytes (MB) in size. However, the precise amount allowable will depend on the attachment.
    When you add an attachment, the size of a file may increase because transport encodings are automatically added. (Transport encodings are the information that allows your message to be safely sent and read.)
    This means that in some cases, attachments that are 17 to 20MB in size may push the total message size above 20MB. When this happens, Gmail displays a warning that your message exceeds the 20MB limit.
    Please note that you may not be able to send larger attachments to contacts who use other email services with smaller attachment limits. If your attachment bounces, you should invite them to Gmail.

    I see. She probably won't be able to go up to the limit, but it's good to inform her about it nonetheless. This also answers my question. Didn't think to read into it before. I can only send maximum of 10mb with my gmail. On a side note, is there also a limit on attachments sent by mobileme?
