i currently have four email accounts set up through Virgin Media, i use google mail to acces the accounts through my Iphone 3GS , the problem i have is that i cannot figure out howto send an email from the handset and choose which of my four accounts i want to send from, they all send from my googlemail account, showing my google address, is there any way which i can choose which account to send from? i know i can do this directly from Google on my PC.
Also is there any way to speed up the emails coming from Google, sometimes i dont seem to receive message for nearly an Hour after they have been sent.

Can you take a screenshot your email composition screen by holding the menu button and tapping the sleep wake button on the top right side.
I've just checked my iPhone and I have a "to:" option then below this I have a CC/BCC/From option. I tap on this it expands and I can choose which email to send to.

are you using googlemail?
i will get a screen shot uploaded shortly, i have the same fields as you, although i do not have any options to choose which email account to send from - it only shows my googlemail address.On my Desire Z i do have a drop down menu allowing me to choose.
I have created one of my accounts as a seperate account on the handset, i then do get the option to choose to send from my google address or the standalone account, although i get the error message from the outgoing server for the standalone account.
i can do what i need to do using googlemail on my desktop and Desire Z but not on the iphone.

The best way to set up a GMail account is using the Exchange ActiveSync protocol.
This allows push email (i.e. straight to your phone as soon as they arrive), and calendar/contact sync. Your emails will be mirrored on the GMail website as well.
If you want to give it a try - Settings > Mail > Add account > Microsoft Exchange (NOT the gmail icon) > fill in details, leave domain blank and click next. It will then add a 'server' box which is m.google.com
