    Re: Problem with GMAIL

    Yes this is an easy fix. In your BIS account set a filter for your gmail account to block messages with "yourname@gmail.com" in the "from" field.

    I had the same reaction you did, Its just the way gmail is set up.

    after that filter I have found Gmail to be a wonderful addition to my Blackberry.

    PM me if you need more detail I'd be for than happy to help.

    Where do you set the filter in the Blackberry Internet Services account? Is it under the settings on my gmail account? I cant seem to find it.

    Anyone know why the hell Google is dumb and supports push emal, one way sync for deletions, but NOT for marking them as read? I always have to go back into my account every day to fix this!

    Yes you're right, sorry about that. Guess I got excited about knowing the answer.

    Glad it worked.

    As far as getting into your BIS account (for all those who are reading and wondering) I know it's different for T-Mobile and Verizon (I've not messed with cingulosers or sprint.)

    T-Mobile: my.t-mobile.com / log into your account / support for my phone / email setup

    Verizon: www.blackberry.com/go/vzw / log into your account
