    I got it installed and everything. I can get it to run and am able to put in my gmail info. After that it just hangs. Any suggestions? I have looked a bit and didnt see anything about it.

    Look in any of the "iphone apps on ipod touch" threads and this is the one issue that they talk about.

    Basically what you'll find is that you need to change the permissions for mobilemail.app as well as the preferencebundle file to 755.

    Having already ran into a hiccup from my own ignorance once or twice and having to reinstall 1.1.1 firmware, I decided that I would bite the bullet and take a risk: when using cyberduck (and I assume any other ftp application on the computer), I changed ALL directories and file-trees to a 755 permission.

    This worked a treat and led to my first email from my ipod to the world.

    I hope this helps; if it doesn't, try the "iphone apps on ipod" threads.
