Setting Up Gmail and Outlook on iPod Touch

On the iPod Touch, you can only set up one Exchange account. It is this kind of account Google recommends you set up to synch your contacts with the iPod. I want to be able to access both my Gmail and my work Exchange accounts on my iPod. I also want my Gmail contacts on the iPod. This is how I did it.

I created a sub folder named "Personal Contacts" to my contacts in Outlook. Following these steps I exported my Gmail contacts to a file and then imported them into "Personal Contacts". On my iPod, I set up Gmail as an IMAP account and my work email as my Exchange account.

I now have both email accounts and both sets of contacts available in my iPod.
