Hello,

Are you able to get to any web sites on the iPhone? What version of the iPhone do you have? Also are you able to connect to Gmail from the iPhone but no emails are being downloaded?

i am able to access yahoo and gmail thru safari on my iphone 3gs and ipod touch, but the mail app connecting the yahoo and gmail mail server just spins and spins, not downloading my emails. that makes me wonder if the iphone mail is using another port to download emails.
