    Still don't understand why you can't link both to the iPad app, I have four email setup in the mail app.

    Ok.... What about the space limitations ?

    Further is there a way to send rich text mail from the iPad mail client ? Or ?

    Independent of that is there a way to send rich text mail from gmail using safari web browser ?

    The only answer I've got for you is that now iOS 5 allows you to add in text formatting to your e-mails. You can put in bold, italic and underlined text. To get there, you've got to select a word and then drill through a bit of a hashed up menu system to find the icons. That's the only rich text options I know of ... and, again, they are only in the new iOS 5.

    I should think it would work the same whether you opened the Mail app or had the Mail app opened by pressing the arrow in Safari.

    Hope that helps.

    Never come across space limitations, but maybe thats because my accounts are all setup as exchange servers, so the ipad just retrieves emails as and when I need them.

    Just checked the RTF options and they are only available in the mail app, not via composing a new message on mail.google.com in safari.
