What i want is basically pretty simple. an easy to setup email for emacs, but one that would work tightly with gmail since i do a lot of mail checking on the road via my cellphone. any advise. recommendations or setups that maybe people are willing to share?

The setup of gnus for gmail is quite simply:

#+BEGIN_SRC emacs-lisp
 (setq gnus-select-method '(nnimap "imap.gmail.com"))
 (setq smtpmail-default-smtp-server "smtp.gmail.com")

and in ~/.authinfo.gpg:

machine imap.gmail.com login <username> password <password> port imap machine smtp.gmail.com login <username> password <password> port 587 #+END_EXAMPLE That is enough to get and check mail (M-x gnus) and send mail (C-x m). Since it is imap, nothing is kept locally so whatever you do in gnus is reflected on your phone and vice versa.

One thing that bears mentioning is that gnus treats mail as news so it won't show you by default already read messages (like most mail apps), hit L to show all groups (as opposed to l for only groups with new messages) and enter the INBOX group to see all previous messages.
