    Sending messages from blackberry via BIS and GMail

    Advertisement



    Hi Folks.

    I wonder if someone can help me...
    I setup my blackberry this week via Orange's BIS and my GMail account.
    Messages are sent and received in realtime and I find the whole service superb. I have on small gripe though...

    When I send a message, I instantly get a copy of what I sent delivered back to both the GMail inbox and Blackberry. The only difference being the words Message Status: Opened appearing after Received Using: <My E-Mail Address>.

    I've gone into my e-mail settings and set:
    Confirm Delivery: No
    Confirm Read: No
    Send Read Receipts: No

    Am I missing something? Each time I get a copy of the message it is eating up my valuable 6mb measly allowance Orange are providing me with.


    Dan.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~

    I made a filter on gmail that sends any emails from me to the trash folder.

    You have to go to your carrier's BIS site and set the Gmail filter there to not forward messages from your email address to your handheld.

    You don't have to do it this way. Mine works just fine. I never get any of my sent messages coming back to my inbox anymore.

    I'm sure both ways work equally as well.

    I previously (about a year ago) set up the filter on GMail to not forward messages sent to my myself (I forward my gmail to *.blackberry. net rather than do POP polling/push). YMMV.
