• 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?

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 :)

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).

    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.
