Can't figure out what I'm doing wrong....

I have gmail set to only pop mail that arrives from now on, yet when I add my gmail account to the iPhone it pulls in ALL my emails.

I even made sure to mark all mail as read but no change.

I have the same problem, five million unread emails because it grabs everything. It also grabs my "sent" messages and dumps them into my inbox, cluttering everything up. Arg!

The Sent Items problem is a known issue that everyone else (including AT&T) uses filters to get around. Why Apple didn't bother is beyond me, but that's par for the course for a lot of things Apple has done with the iPhone.

I don't have my iPhone yet but can you use the mail application in Apple to sync with iPhone. I have this app. to pull my Gmail information and it only pulls what I tell it to. When you changed it to 25 mails, was that in iPhone pref. or Gmail pref.

Interesting. I made that change and my mail finally stopped flowing in. Try deleting and re-adding your Gmail account on the phone.

I've removed and added a dozen times (ok maybe not quite that many) and no change.

jacjac - Its an iPhone setting and the only change for me is that it now refills to 25 emails instead of the default 50.
