I have two e-mail accounts. A personal account (Gmail) and a work account (
whateverdomain.com, obviously a fake example). Currently, I am already handling both from Gmail, but there's a couple of issues I don't like and I was wondering what's the best way to go.
The current way I get e-mail on Gmail is by setting up a POP3 account on Mail Settings. This allows me to receive and send e-mail from Gmail and all e-mails (sent and received) are stored on the account.
First problem: when an e-mail is sent to
email@example.com there's a big delay since Gmail only checks its external POP3 accounts every half an hour or more. Since work e-mails are potentially urgent that makes my solution a bad solution.
Second problem: on the iPhone... I suffer the same problem. If I setup the work email via IMAP then I have two accounts meaning emails written from
whateverdomain.com are not stored in Gmail. If I only setup the Gmail account and use the comma trick so my work mail appears on the from field then emails are saved but appear as "whateverdomain.com via gmail" which doesn't look very professional.
Any ideas on how to do this?
