    Just changed to gmail, now have issues

    Advertisement



    Ok, so after much persuasion, I finally got a gmail account.

    Now the problem is it isnt reconciling properly. If I delete stuff off my gmail account online, it doesnt come out of my folder on my BB unless I manually delete it. I have it set the same way as my yahoo account and that reconciles just fine.

    What do i do?

    Re: Just changed to gmail, now have issues

    I recently had problems with gmail, and after I got some help on the stacks it all worked out. My settings are set like this..

    Under Settings> Forwarding and POP/IMAP

    POP is enabled, and IMAP is disabled.
    Forwarding is disabled.
    When messages are accessed with POP keep Gmail's copy in the Inbox.

    Try that and see if that helps any, and let me know

    Gmail does not have full reconciliation. You need to enable IMAP and Ikm not positive if they have all the bugs worked out.

    When it was first introduced it had a few issues. It was a bit slower also. If you enable IMAP you should get reconciliation back supposedly.

    Take a look at a thread I started about email problems. http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com...up_e-mail.html

    I was told to disable IMAP because it seemed to have a lot of problems while I was using it. And after I disabled it, I have never had a problem.

    Re: Just changed to gmail, now have issues

    So am I not supposed to have POP enabled? At the moment, I have both IMAP and POP enabled. I cant figure out how to get this working. It seems that when I delete the email from my phone, it correctly gets deleted from my gmail on the computer. However its not working in the reverse order.

    On mine it seems sometimes I have to use the refresh option in the menu on the phone for it to match up with my computer. I may be wrong but I believe it updates every 15 minutes or so.

    I have POP ENABLED
    IMAP DISABLED.

    These settings work fine on my GMAIL account. I receive it on my BB and my inbox.

    Ok let me ask, what were you using before? I don't think full reconciliation is possible.

    Also I just want to make sure what you want it to do. Are you trying to have them synchronized?

    Re: Just changed to gmail, now have issues

    OK I tested the speed of IMAP versus POP

    There is about a 15min delay when using IMAP to receiving emails from the Gmail to Blackberry

    POP is pretty much instant.

    So it's either choose reconciliation or instant emails. I would rather receive my emails instantly.

    So I got it to reconcile correctly in my gmail account when I delete off my BB. However when I delete off the gmail online it doesnt delete off my BB. Odd...anyone know a fix?
