    Since the file system is totally different from the traditional file system I dunno if it's at all possible. Although I'm not a programmer so I'm not sure.

    Don't think anyone has hear of it anytime soon.

    Its mildly annoying, but not a deal breaker. I just go into gmail about once a week, hit "select all" and then mark them all read. Yeah, a minor irritant to do it manually, but there are worse problems in the world I suppose...

    The joys of Gmail being a beta service. The reason they stay a beta service is as long as the are they do not have to staff support for it. So in my opinion. No. Probably not.

    I agree with you, and I'm not bashing Gmail as I use it along with Yahoo. They both have there Pros & Cons, like anything else. However I do know that Yahoo has a bigger commitment to mobile email services, and was very focused on accomplishing two way sync with the BB platform. I really enjoy it. Fast, reliable, and a real time saver. Kudo's to Yahoo for bringing great useablility to BlackBerry owners.

    Re: Email Reconciliation with Gmail

    RIM has a knowledge base article on this... its supposed to work, taking anywhere between 90 minutes and 6 hours... but i cant get it to work either. knowledge base article: Doc ID : KB05133
    Last Modified : 2007-10-09

    its called: Email reconciliation features for BlackBerry Internet Service 2.x

    here is what the site says, "Note: Email reconciliation occurs in real time for integrated Yahoo! email accounts only. For all other integration types (POP/IMAP, Gmail, etc.), there is a delay of between 90 minutes to 6 hours before email reconciliation occurs."

    also check out KB13509

    I thought BIS 2.4 was supposed to be instant 2 way sync.

    According to RIM it is.

    Improved Mailbox management
    Synchronization of message status
    Full two-way immediate synchronization of message status (read/unread) to source mailbox. For example, if a BlackBerry device user reads an email message from an integrated third-party Inbox, the email message is automatically marked as read on the BlackBerry device as well
    Save Sent items
    A copy of email messages sent from the BlackBerry smartphone is placed in the source Sent Items folder. For example, if you send an email message from the BlackBerry smartphone using a third-party integrated account, a copy of the sent email message is placed in the Sent Items folder of the third-party account.
    Wireless deletion
    Email messages deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone can also be deleted from the mailbox of an integrated email account. When deleting an email message, the BlackBerry smartphone user will be prompted to select whether or not to delete the email message from the original mailbox as well.
    Save Deleted items
    A copy of email messages deleted from the BlackBerry smartphone is placed in the source Deleted Items ( or trash) folder. For example, if you delete an email message from the BlackBerry smartphone using a third-party integrated account, a copy of the deleted email message is placed in the Deleted Items folder of the third-party account. This feature is limited to source-types including IMAP, Microsoft Exchange, and IBM® Lotus® Domino® sources.
    Improved support for enhanced Yahoo!® Mail

    Synchronization of message status
    Full two-way immediate synchronization of message status (read/unread) now supported to and from the Yahoo! Mail Inbox. For example, if a BlackBerry device user reads an email message from a Yahoo! Mail Inbox, the email message is automatically marked as read on the BlackBerry device as well.
    Note: Full two-way synchronization of deleted email messages was added with BlackBerry Internet Service 2.2.

    I have a yahoo account but find a huge lag on delivery and to me that is a deal breaker.

    Anybody else find a lag or is it just me?

    I agree with your comment on a large lag being a deal breaker. It certainly would be for me.

    However, luckily I'm finding that my 3 Yahoo accounts are performing very well with great speed. And that, is a huge relief, as I handle a lot of my business mail that way.

    While this does not help w/ reconciliation, here is a technique for instant gmail delivery to the bb while on a BIS. Establish an email address thru your service provider (eg. xxx@tmo.blackberry.net). Then, in gmail settings, have a copy of each email forwarded to your device-associated BIS email account. Its instantaneous delivery. I often get msgs on my berry before my web browser automatically refreshes (1 minute intervals). Like I said, this will not help with reconciliation at all, but if speed is your deal breaker, I just broke your deal breaker!
