Unhappy BIS 2.6 + GMail IMAP Changes

Please Login to Remove!

Ok. I have replied to a few posts mentioning some of the issues that I'm having, but i'm going to start a fresh post on the subject.

With BIS 2.6 on AT&T with GMail I am noticing the following issues. Can someone please give me some feedback if they have either found a work-around, or at least if they are having the same issues.

1. With the "Advanced IMAP Options" enabled in the GMail settings page, "Auto Expunge" set to "Do not automatically expunge messages", and "When a message is expunged from the last visible IMAP folder:" set to "Archive the message", when deleting a message on my device with delete on "Mailbox and Handheld", GMail's copy is immediately moved to the "Trash" not to "All Mail".

This is a problem. This means that I will now have to manually go into my gmail inbox and archive all the emails that I dont want to stay there. Before, I would use the "Delete on Mailbox and Handheld" to move the message to "All Mail" if it did not require a follow-up, that way only the messages that needed more attention would stay in my Inbox.

2. After archiving GMail's copy in the web interface, if I receive a reply to the message, I get 2 emails on the blackberry, and so on. Consider people who use the blackberry forums. I got a reply to an old thread that I started, and had almost 45 posts, therefore 45 post notification emails. I had archived all of these previously. When I got that reply last night, 46 emails showed up in my inbox. Is anyone else seeing this?
