Setting up and using email on the Motorola Milestone Android-powered smartphone

The Motorola Milestone's slide out full Qwerty keyboard and fine connectivity options provide it with the capability to be a high quality messaging device. Running on Google's Android smartphone operating system, and with Wi-Fi and HSPA data connectivity, A-GPS and a 3.7inch touchscreen to present its browser and multimedia functionality, the Milestone a powerful all-rounder.

But it's a great communicator too, with push email and instant messaging fully supported. As you turn on the Motorola Milestone for the first time, you are prompted for your Google Mail account details, and when you input these the phone automatically syncs up to your Google Mail and Talk account.
