    To remove messages from your desktop email client as well as from your handheld, go into your BB email inbox, pull up the menu, go to Options, Email Reconciliation and choose "Delete On:" to the setting you like.

    I guess I should be more clear....

    Let's say I have my gmail sent to my BB and my Keep Messages setting is set to 15 days. After those 15 days gmail messages on my BB are then removed from my handheld. So my question is, are those messages going to also be removed from my gmail inbox?

    No, I do not believe so. It's kind of like an "archive" at that point. No, there is no where on the phone for you to retrieve them but they are not deleted like if you were physically deleting them from your handheld which would delete them from your Gmail account.

    Hi there. Sorry to post so late about this issue. You may have figured it out already, but I think it would depend on your Blackberry settings. If your Blackberry settings under "Message Options" and "Email Reconciliation" are set at "Delete On: Mailbox & Handheld" then it should automatically delete from both the handheld and the e-mail server which is Gmail in this case. So you just need to make sure that it is set to "Handheld". Let me know what you find out since I'm curious too.

    Hope this helps and sorry if it's too late.

    Phil
