    Couple of questions about the GMail app on the desire.

    Firstly, does anyone know if there's any was of getting it to always show pictures for a given sender (like the web app)? I seem to have a decent connection most places, and get fed up of constantly having the press the button, especially as most of the emails I get are HTML type newsletters.

    And related to the type of emails, why doesn't the GMail app also have pinch to zoom when viewing the messages? They always come up huge and I have to scroll around. Can you at least change the default zoom.

    Failing that is there a another free email app. that will do these things.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi, my first post... I'm bumping this because I also want to know.

    Short of going on the internet normally, how can the gmail program/app (I'm not sure what it is yet!) use pinch-to-zoom? Thanks

    Try the stock 'HTC Mail' - It has pinch to zoom, and also you can set it to retrieve full pictures/HTML (Menu-> More-> Settings-> Send & Receive-> Mail size limit, set it to 'no limit')....but it has to be for all emails... not just by person.

    I didn't know the stock HTC client would do that.

    But I'm currently running DeFrost ROM on my rooted phone, so can't use it.

    I might try a Sense Froyo ROM at some point though.

    Thanks for the tip.
