The iOS 6 mail client was just plain unusable, and in very limited
experience the iOS 7.1 client is not a lot better.  Neither can stay
synched with the state of Gmail on my PC.  It's easier to use Gmail
from Safari (even though Safari has trouble displaying those pages
correctly), and I'm going to try the Gmail iPhone client later today
(I normally don't process mail from my iPhone 4S/iOS 7.1).

I can't speak for those who don't use Gmail, of course, but I find it
hard to be sympathetic with people who complain that the very limited
clients provided by Apple are, well, *very* limited.

That's a shame.  I really think putting the blame on Yahoo! and the
DMARC advocates (Yahoo! clearly being a leader in that crowd), where
it belongs, and the discomfort on Yahoo! users, is a better idea.
