Greetings,

when I try to access the GMail mobile site on my iPhone, I get a "the website https: mail.google.com needs an additional 5 MB of space to store weinh005@umn.edu as a local database" error, followed by allow/disallow.

Yes, there's no issue with desktop access to the site. This is strictly iPhone based.

The gmail website actually creates a local store even in the basic "mobile" mode through Safari becuase of the use of HTML 5 -- http://net.tutsplus.com/tutorials/html-css-techniques/quick-tip-learning-about-html5-local-storage/

On doing some investigations it seems Safari has default 5mb allocated for database storage, it seems for offline storage. I think the db might still be sqllite. Apparently it is configurable on the desktop version of Safari but it might not be on the smaller devices like iphone and ipad.
But the prompt you get is allow/disallow, this is whether you want more space allocated. So if you say yes then it should increase to about 10megs.

I know that there are reasons that you might want to use gmail via Safari, but I did want to make sure that you realize that gmail works great in the iPhone mail client. I think the interface is much easier to use and it is very easy to setup.

If you don't like the iPhone Mail, try a 3rd party app (like AppBox Pro, has gmail client in it plus loads of other apps).
