    When you try to send contact via email the only 2 options for email provider are Exchange/Activesync and POP3/IMAP.

    How come GMail is not in the list? I have GMail account configured on the phone because it is needed for Market and whole bunch of other stuff but I can't use it here. I don't have any other email setup because I see no need.

    Am I not doing something right or is it just the way it is?

    If you're sending the contact from the People app - that's an HTC Sense app, so it wants to work with the built-in Mail from HTC, rather than Gmail.

    You can set up all of your accounts in Mail - I do, including my Gmail and it's pretty easy.

    Then when you go to email the vCard from People, it will show which account to send it from on the drop-down tool at the top of the page.

    When you setup your accounts in Mail, be sure to give them descriptive names that work for you - and if you forget, you can always launch Mail, and go into the prefs to change the names.

    Yes, good workaround - I didn't think of that. How is HTC Mail application? Better of worse than GMail? Any third-party clients I should consider (I don't mind paying)?

    I _really_ like the built-in HTC Mail - a lot!

    Gmail does push mail - mail arrives immediately to your phone. Uh - for me, not a big deal.

    With Mail, you set up on-hours and off-hours polling rates independently for each of your mail accounts (and you define the hours).

    So - during work hours, mail polls my work account frequently, family and friends just a little - then at night, I swap that around.

    It's also great for flowing text on zoom and copy/paste works great (they had right before Gmail, even tho Gmail's ok on that now - just saying - typical HTC thought went into the tool).

    I don't even bother with Gmail (the app) at all.

    I know this is a fairly old thread, but it's a topic I was searching for (sending vCards via Gmail). I'm in sales, so I'm sending vCards all the time. In my current case, I have my google account set up in both the gmail app and HTC Mail. Sending vCards is the only reason I use the stock mail program, as it doesn't show my colored Labels when I receive mail (red is one customer, blue another, and so forth). If it could do that, I'd completely switch over.

    Sorry for replying in an old thread, but I have a question regarding setting up Gmail in HTC Mail. I have always wanted to do that because I am not a big fan of the Gmail conversation view which I can turn off in the web viewer but not in Gmail for Android. How do you handle the trash folder when setting up Gmail in HTC Mail? Does it use the Gmail/Trash or does it create a new one in IMAP/Trash?

    Thanks,
    Jeff
