    I'm trying to use Dolphin Browser to access Gmail but it gets stuck at about 1/6 of the wait loading mail.google.com and then goes to a white screen.

    I tried in the native browser and it works fine. I also tried this with Xscope and same thing as Dolphin browser occurs.

    Is this a known bug? If not, any ideas?

    I noticed it is faster the native one, it has multi-touch, and I like the layout style...

    Same here, I just get a blank page when I go to the Gmail page in the Dolphin browser. I thought it was just my Dolphin browser doing that?

    Hm, good point. But the thing is, my school changed to using Gmail and it's not the same procedure that I would use to login to my personal Gmail. So the Gmail app will not work.

    When I try going to 'Add Account' it will allow me to enter my 'Gmail email' but it doesn't have a @gmail extension and I'm not sure how to work around this.

    The Gmail app works great for my primary email but I have another gmail account for less important stuff that I don't want to add to the phone. If I were to add it that would mean more emails and unwanted alerts that I don't want on my phone. It would be nice just to log into the browser to check it if I need to.

    If your school uses Gmail for accounts then it is probably using Google Apps for Domains, so it should just work if you set it up through the add accounts feature.

    What happens when you try this:

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & Sync > [ Add Account ] > Google > Next > Sign in > enter username and PW

    When I put in my school ID, it'll automatically add a @gmail extension, and this is not the extension that my school uses.

    Meh, I think for now I'll just have to use the native Browser for school email...

    I could be wrong but I don't think you are following what I am saying.

    If you see a screen where is shows it adding @gmail, you are on the WRONG screen.

    Menu > Settings > Accounts & Sync > [ Add Account ] > Google > Next > Sign in > enter FULL EMAIL ADDRESS and PW


    Don't just enter your schoolID, enter your schoolID@YourSchoolsDomain.com


    Alternatively, you could probably set up the regular email app to access gmail through imap I think.
