Using the iPhone to send Google Hosted Mail

I've got an account with google to host my domain names email. When the iPhone was first released, it could check these accounts, but I was unable to send any email without getting an error. With the release of firmware 1.1.1, I'm now able to send email from those accounts.

I'm not sure if this is an undocumented feature of 1.1.1, but somehow, the port number got added to the and that fixed the problem. So cool!

For those of you still trying to set this up, use the host name and the same log in information described in the documentation. recent:[youremail@address] and password. Everything now works!
