I access e-mails via Mac Mail as well as my iPhone. It feels like I need to organize them twice...is there a way to sort mail into folders from my iPhone and have them automatically appear in the correct folders on my desktop...and vice-versa? I'm using an address associated with my domain at the moment but am open to switching the gmail if that would make things easier.

Do you know of your email provider supports IMAP. if so, that is the way to go, as it will support folders and keeping your mail sync'd up. If your provider does not provide IMAP support, gmail does and is free. I am using gmail currently and have this functionality.

For iPhone, it is better to setup gmail as exchange mail, and you will actually get push email like blackberry on your iPhone:
