  • The IMAP client in Symbian doesn't let me archive
  • The standard web interface has been retired and I'm stuck with the mobile view with teeny links and painful, keypad based navigation
  • The gmail symbian app is deprecated if not wholesale retired obsolescent

Is there another version of GMail I can use that is touchscreen friendlier?

m.gmail.com doesn't work for you? – Al E. Oct 12 '10 at 13:02
That's the mobile view with teeny little links and painful, keypad based navigation. – badp Oct 12 '10 at 13:05
Ah. Nevermind, then. – Al E. Oct 12 '10 at 13:07

Visit the HTML only (no AJAX) version of GMail - https://mail.google.com/mail/h/

That'll give you far more functionality than the usual mobile format.

Wow, I thought it had been retired :) – badp Dec 16 '10 at 14:38

Both my iPhone and iPad redirect to: https://mail.google.com/mail/mu/#tl/Inbox when going to http://gmail.com.

You might want to give that URL a try.

If that doesn't work, you could try spoofing your user agent to appear to the website as an iPhone (although some things might break).

+1 badp you should un-downvote these two answers, they work for us, but for some reason, they're being blocked for you, and it seems, only you. – msanford Dec 17 '10 at 2:35

I get 404 here too :( – badp Nov 17 '10 at 10:10
The fact that you are getting 404 errors for all solutions offered makes me think you have connection problems rather then there being a problem with the links given. – Whitingx Nov 17 '10 at 11:45
+1 it works for me and it seems very touch-friendly! – msanford Dec 17 '10 at 2:34
