    are you trying to push it with adb?

    if you throw the apk in your sdk/tools then adb push mail.apk /data/app/ (with data mounted) it should work...

    meh, i suck at mount points and such, so i don't know if there's a better place to send it. /system/app seems to be the "cooked rom area" and /data/app/ seems to be the "i'm going to install stuff area"

    Edit: I tried installing it. It installs via dropbox (i'm sure you'd be fine with astro too) but it force closes when trying to save my school exchange account. Bah.

    its working great, i left the widget out though i didn't like it anyways. i just hate how gmail never lets you download attachments because i'm constantly emailing small files to myself from my desktop so i don't have to constantly plug in and unplug usb.

    i tried it once but never really kept using it, i'll give it another shot. emails are just easy but maybe dropbox is too.

    i completely agree with DropBox. I used to use the websharing wireless app in order to transfer files, but dropbox does this automagically with a favorite folder on my Win7 lappy/desktop/ and anywhere I might be that's not near one of my comps.

    The gmail app does really suck though. Kinda pitiful actually.
