If I have all of my gMail emails forwarded to iCloud....why doesn't the mail come through right away? My iPhone has both the gmail and iCloud accounts set up on it. Gmail is set to fetch email every 15 minutes,
but I thought since I have it forwarded to iCloud the emails
would come through that second.

Are you setting it up this way because you cannot get Gmail to push on its own?

it fetches every 15 min. But since I have it forwarded I thought iCloud would get it ASAP so I don't have to wait.

Try this and let me know how it works:


-Settings
-Mail, Contacts, Calendars
-Add Account
-Microsoft Exchange
Email = your gmail address
Domain = leave blank
Username = your gmail address again,
Password =
Description is optional (I call mine gmail)
- Tap "Next"
-Server = m.google.com
Select done and if all the information is correct you will get check marks and now your gmail will push!


Now you will have the two account "pushing"!

Couple of things to look out for under Settings -> Mail, Contacts, Calendars:

1. Because you will now have two emails addy's active, make sure you select the default email you want to send from.
2. If you are backing up things like Contacts and Calendars to iCloud, I would deselect these under Gmail.


Let me know how it works!

Good luck!
