    Email from 1 address only not being sent to device

    Advertisement



    Hey all!
    I hope somebody can help me with this.
    My Dad has a new gmail address.
    I have a gmail address as well that I've set up with BIS.
    for some reason when my Dad sends me a new email (not a reply to 1 of mine), that email will not get sent to my Pearl 8130. However it gets downloaded via Thunderbird when I check my gmail at home on my pc (my Pearl is set to leave everything on the server). I haven't checked my address on the gmail web site to see if it's there or not, I probably should.

    I've added his address to my address book on my bb, set up a rule in BIS to send all mail from that address to the device. It's as if RIM is filtering out that address for some reason on their side.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm assuming you both setup BIS to connect to gmail using POP3 and not the standard http method?

    Is Thunderbird open at the same time when this problem occurs?

    no it isn't.
    And here's another weird wrinkle: when my Dad sets his gmail address to xx@googlemail.com I receive the emails, when he sets it to xxx@gmail.com I don't.

    it turns out it was the filter I had set up to not send sent gmail to the device. My Dad's gmail address is 1 character different than mine & therefore was filtered out.
